Not a rumour, but a question. Will the club have any incoming replacements for Franco Marais and Logo Mulipola?

I believe Scivington was after a Prop, a 2nd Row and a Centre.

I'd say Garvey will be the second row GS mentioned, as at the time he wasn't under contract. That leaves us with Slater, Garvey, Alemanno and Craig. Clarke to cover also.

Saracens back in the Prem and Ealing too, for a £50M investment.

I get the C-19 interference, but I see no reason why sometime in 2021 a mini League / Cup competition, ala the European Cups, can't be used to get a Championship Champion and even bring in a play-off between them and the Prem bottom place to see who gets the 12th Prem spot. Rules can be changed under the current C-19 situation. However to allow a Club to, allegedly, be able to buy their way into the Prem is, imho, unacceptable. The owner has pumped about £25M into Ealing over the last 25 years and has a nett worth of about £385M. However travel companies are taking a battering and that will be lowering his bank balance.

Billy Meakes back in the premiership with Irish.

Not sure if that was picked up.

A 14-team Premiership makes sense. The next few seasons will be about financial recovery

I sadly have to agree BUT is this the way to be doing it ?? Looks like a complete stitch-up by PRL and no doubt all the existing PRL clubs will get their slice of the money ?? Money the Govt, presumably, wouldn't grant them.

The relationship between PRL/Premiership and the rest of the game widens even further.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!
