Looks as if some clubs are going the way of the Premiership- importing players from abroad. They are entitled to , but I don’t think it’s good for English rugby.

This guy's English-qualified Ps; he may do well in Jersey, be signed by a Prem club in 15 months time, when he'll be only 23 still, and then subsequently play for England. As the current arrangements stand, one could argue that is good for English rugby...

It could be argued that the RFU are bad for English rugby TBF.

I’m referring to home nurtured players, not rugby versions of Zola Budd, Greg Rudetski etc. I speak as South African born and brought up.
I appreciate it has been going on for ever but not on this scale. Our school doctor , a South African, captained England at full back in the 1930s then went back to play cricket for his native land. My point is there are too many of them. Good luck to them as individuals, but it limits opportunities for home bred players.

Now that YORKSHIRE Carnegie and their England RFU Academy  has imported half of New Zealand and results are picking up, they seem to be placing their Academy players at National League clubs in.......Co Durham.

Surely the time to revert back to Leeds has come. The WE ARE YORKSHIRE RUGBY experiment is surely dead; They couldn't be any less Yorkshire if they tried.

I dunno - when we went up there in freezing rain, they wer too stingy to have hot water on in the gents, or to switch on the wifi for the press indoors. And the beer had too much froth.

And when we ere up there a couple of moths ago, all the squad was offered after the match was a baguette. Absolutely ridiculous after giving their all over 80 minutes. Not rugby etiquette in the slightest, despite the fact, too, that those in hospitality were given a 3-course roast meal. Pathetic.

Sometimes that must get frustrating, just when you don't want a player to go anywhere....

He came to Cov very unfit following an abortive foray to France. He's worked very hard, and needs the game time, so it's probably a good move, getting time with their As.
