No the championship doesn’t need better funding neither does the premiership. What clubs at level 1 & 2 need is a reality check so that they stop being kept in a false position by funding.

Dear Sir
 
It was with regret that I read your churlish reply to the excellently written and balanced article in the Rugby Paper.
 
You fail to understand your place amongst rugby's elite. Ealing, for example, are small beer and rely on third party funding (a few Premiership clubs do so but only 11). London Scottish receive funding from SRU I understand - can't have them. As to the historic elite, Bedford have a sloping pitch and Coventry have some former National 1 players in their teams (only a few clubs such as Saracens and Bath have that).
 
Frankly, you need to get a grip. Premiership Rugby Ltd, Professional Lawyers Association and, in the future, CVC have the efficient RFU by the short and curlies. We are, as the Highland Tinker, on the verge of a great breakthrough.
 
Yours faithfully
 
A Chairman

3 leagues of 10 get my vote and make the numbers up by adding the top 6 in N1 to league 3. Automatic 2 up two down promotion and relegation and a real cup competition with all 30 involved.
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

A final point on Mr Lansdown, his firm Hargreaves Lansdown were once a two man band that grew to become a member of the FTSE 100 and the largest investment broker in the UK. You could almost argue they are the Exeter of the UK investment industry...
