    No idea if/how true. I barely know the guy who told me. The company he works for buy equipment of us occasionally and he’s usually the guy who collects it on route to site for installation. We’ve talked football on occasions past and he knew I was a Cov fan and thought it would interest me. He heard it just before Xmas apparently.

    Everything crossed, but 'he said that she said that he said...' doesn't often lead to owt.

    If it does though just remember that it was me who won the internet;)

    The other side to the coin though is that just say because there’s an out for Richardson (if indeed there is) it doesn’t mean that there’s an in for either the club or SISU. It’s possible that he may sell it on to a distressed business specialist, you know like SISU but not SISU. And who’s to say that they won’t out SISU SISU with us as piggy in the middle still/again?

    If he wants to sell, then keeping the revenue stream from City would help that you'd have thought?

    Hmmmm...that is an interesting twist. My thoughts were that he would buy SISU out. Could end up the other way around & SISU end up with CCFC, Wasps & stadium. That'd be worth the wait (not sure about all the legal fees mind) for them I'm sure.

    I thought only the top 6 prem teams got in?

    Edit. Sorry just misread what you wote. Surely the challenge cup is less prestigious though and will result in lower crowds and broadcast income?

    Do they not want people to take the sport seriously? Talk about stopping promoting and relegation and every team qualifies for Europe. It's like 'everyone wins a prize' at a school sports day.

    To be fair it’s European rugby that allocate the number of places.

    They have a lot of teams in the way so can’t see it looking at the table unfortunately, but they might not qualify for the big competition in Europe if they go much further down.

    Not really it’ll be between Newcastle, Bristol & Worcester.

    I’m sure the powers that be hope Newcastle drop, London Irish go up and they can close the trap door on the premiership!

    If they keep losing players at the speed they are they will struggle to put a full side out soon.

    I wonder where they’d look for a few stop gap players.....that is my concern, not many but there is a couple playing in CV1 that could fill a hole.

    I'd like to see Le Roux sign for Cov Rugby.

    Nothing better than seeing Willie tearing up the Butts.

    Nathan Hughes England international he’s gone to Bristol on big money and Le Roux starts every week not sure where he’s off to.

    Once (if) Daly goes you may see a meltdown.....

    I wonder if with the recent news from JLR if they will see sense and cut their involvement with this group.

    I wonder how their naming rights sale is going
