Grim up North

A sad state of affairs for Championship club Yorkshire Carnegie and its fans and for rugby in the North in general as the club, having lost a significant chunk of its funding for next season, is the latest professional rugby outfit in severe financial difficulty.
Unless it can agree a CVA with its creditors – which include several of its players – the club’s trading company faces being wound up.

Which just goes to prove what I’ve been banging on about for years – that the professional game in England simply cannot support two fully professional leagues.
