Yorkshire Carnegie now taking the piss

The controversy surrounding Yorkshire Carnegie refuses to go away.

The long and the short of it is that last season the club went bust. But rather than be penalised by the RFU, Carnegie have been allowed to continue playing in the Championship whilst they allegedly still owe money to many of last season's playing staff.

And now, to put the icing on the cake - Carnegie have announced the signing of ex-England wing Tom Varndell - who presumably won't be just playing for his bus fare and post-match meat pie - who joins other high profile signing Joe Ford at Headingly for the coming season.

Someone, somewhere is taking the piss.
