Interesting statement from Wuss MD

"We are not the only Premiership club looking for investment. Some clubs are finding it increasingly difficult to be profitable with rising costs."- reported words from Gus Mackay according to the link below:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/41233523

Is this a chain reaction statement to MSQ's words a few weeks back? ; and will another Premiership club "up for sale" be revealed shortly & if so who ?.

I don't give any money to Murdoch, but apparently there was an article in the Times that implied there were other clubs 'looking for investment'....of the top of my head I can think of at least four candidates...maybe five.

MSQ has made it perfectly clear Glaws are looking for further investment; he made quite a convincing pitch of it at the fans forum.

London Irish are looking for £10 million to help them develop an AP club at Brentford's new stadium, Saints Falcons, Sale and Glos are all in the market for extra cash.
If you read The Times article it does paint a more heartening picture for Worcester with a debt free company and a 50 acre freehold site right next to the M5. The cash available at Bristol seems to be eye-watering just hope that Landsdown does not get fed up.

He has money galore to spend Rollo; but he might just get frustrated you know . Bristol are not guaranteed promotion although they appear to be clear favourites and probably will win their League. If they do return to the Premiership they will probably be committed to an already expensive squad and the ? is....will that squad be good enough to make an impression again at the higher level?. I think they will need at least three seasons if promoted again to do so.

its all a race to the top of the hill then an even faster one to the bottom, reality needs to strike and fast before some clubs go bust in a big way

Reality = salary cap.

Sarries and Bath have a lot to answer for.

Agree.

Sarries is a serious joke -in spite of their "success" on the pitch in recent years.

Whatever anyone say's about Chiefs; you have to respect how they have managed their business. We haven't done too badly "off the pitch" when you look at things at other clubs; BUT we've seriously under-performed ( on the pitch) compared the them in recent seasons.

Is there an accountant out there who can tell us where the 'hush' money was shown in the GR accounts?
