Welsh reprieved

Well done to all concerned at London Welsh RFC for averting disaster and dragging the stricken club out of administration and back from the brink.

The acquisition of the London Welsh by Red Dragon Rugby Limited has satisfied the RFU so the club is, at least for now, once again solvent and so will continue to play in the Championship in the upcoming 2009/10 season and not suffer the indignity of having to start again in the lower tiers of the league system.

Having gone into administration, London Welsh will, however, begin the season with a five-point penalty so the likes of John Dawes, JPR Williams, Gerald Davies and John Taylor can continue spinning in their graves to an extent (if they were dead, which they're not - obviously).
