Premiership Rugby in the money?
Effectively the bid values Premiership Rugby at £550m – not peanuts, certainly, but actually only between 2½ and 3 times the value of serial-diver Neymar. 😏
With PRL members due to meet next week and with unanimity required for the bid to be accepted, it seems unlikely to succeed.
It is, however, a stake in the ground and may well be the beginning of a process which could see significant financial investment in the English domestic game.
