The situation is ridiculous and I hope the creditors get looked after properly . .  I cannot see any long term future for the YC franchise!

Since when do Creditors get looked after in a liquidation - lucky if they pick up 1p in the £

Exactly but they just have to roll over and take it, complete farce. Please can the RFU get a grip of the situation and give everyone certainty.

This isn't a liquidation - yet.
That's easy for you to say.

Something will turn up just to keep them above the waterline - the owners of Headingley can't afford to have it unused over the winter.

It all looks pretty hopeless. Why aren’t they going down nine leagues?

Sounds like they are going to get the best side they can for the available budget - whilst shafting the creditors (sounds a familiar tale for clubs in level 2/3)

Presumably by doing this they don't have to start again from the bottom, just sink level by level over the coming seasons until they reach a level they can be competitive at.

Trouble is, very few players will want to join a club who are going to lose most, if not all, of their fixtures for the foreseeable future.

So let me get this right. At Xmas with the third biggest budget in the Championship YC are 5 points adrift at the bottom of the league. They they bring in a number overseas recruits on 18 month contracts that they knew they could not fulfil and win enough games to avoid relegation. Now they are refusing to pay these players or other creditors and have gone down the CVA route so they can some how get the RFU Championship money for season 2019/20 in order for the club to survive but be hopelessly uncompetitive in the league. Richmond on the other hand stay in the black, have a full squad and coaching set up for next season -not only get shafted by Hartpury bringing in 13 premiership players for the last six weeks of the season, but are now being shafted by YC who made contracts with players they had no intention of seeing out. And the RFU is going to let this happen because of some deluded thought that for the 'good of rugby' YC need to survive. The admin at YC has been a disgrace and should suffer the consequences as other clubs in the past - Richmond, London Scottish, London Welsh and now Moseley - have done. If the RFU allow this to happen they also are a disgrace.

Well said Marigold . .  and the RFU should have been well aware of the perils at YC well before now as they have failed to produce accounts . . which are still overdue and should have been with the RFU before last season.

Other Championship clubs have lost league position money by YC's actions and Richmond have lost their league position and nearly all central funding . . and still dont know if they are planning for Nat1 or Championship.

Not withstanding players, coaches and suppliers who will all be out of pocket . . due the vanity/ignorance of the board.

All said without prejudice! I expect this drama to unfold painfully slowly to the credit of no one at YC, the RFU or rugby in general.

Bees?  Or have I missed something while checking out the ambulance access at Ampthill on Google Maps?

Professional rugby isn’t sustainable certainly in the Championship.

Too many players and coaches are ‘living the dream’ when they simply aren’t of the level to aspire to professionalism.

Part time and make them actually earn a living instead of being a rugby bum

Professional rugby below the Prem is an illusion , not that any of them other than Exeter make any money . . but semi- pro can work . .  look at clubs such as Bedford and ironically Richmond . .. but very few can and are totally reliant on the largess of benefactors . . but I am not sure that will ever change
