    Only off Facebook group. But I think the idea is to erect temporary stands at rugby Town's butlin Road ground.

    Boddy and his crew did a wreckie off rugby last week - were pleasantly surprised. This is our one and only option at the moment. Temporary stands will hold near on 9000

    I got told this last week so wouldn’t be atall surprised if true... I would support it 100% if wasps miss out on European rugby and have a season without rent from us, would bleed those bastards dry and hopefully send them under.

    I wouldnr go much but if its only a temporary move to keep club alive u gotta accept it i guess.

    Hope wasps would die in the meantime

    But worry would always be is it permanent or not?

    Why ?. Cut cloth accordingly and wait for court win or wasps financial meltdown . If 7k will go to mk dons, why not similar amounts to a CV postcode ?

    It’s a really great non league ground.... needs more stands obviously. But the best silver lining is it’s my home town!

    That has to be one of two strategies. The other is court case win.

    CV21 which will mean all those that said they wouldn't go if we move out of the CV postcodes will be fine.

    Looks like they've got half decent facilities and own the land around the ground with room to put temporary stands up. Walkable from Rugby train station and only 20 mins down the road.

    Certainly a better option that Northampton or MK.

    What-like Northampton was?

    Or like when the Council sold the football stadium built by us to a Rugby Club from London?

    Or when we were relegated from the Premiership, the Championship and League one?

    Or when we lost to Sutton and Worcester in the cup?

    Nope-we stronger & better than that.
