RugbyPass article  by the dubious Paul Smith also quoting the nasty Gilbert but worth a scan -

Paul Smith is an a*se with an axe to grind. Unpopular locally.

Very much so.

Makes me wonder how Mr Holland will get himself out of the EPIC and Sixways. Maybe the deal he has with Birmingham City will become permanent.

Then he will have a nice farm house there to sell also. I wonder if the contractors who did all that work ever got paid? I know that they had not been when Wasps folded.

I'm keen to see Wasps resurrected. And the URC would be an interesting prospect.

It offers some interesting challenges for a new the new entity, new fans may be more difficult to engage in a non domestic league. Attracting away fans makes the location even more important, firstly good transport links and a nearby airport, second an away weekend to an industrial estate near a motorway is no where near as attractive as a weekend in Dublin, Cardiff, Edinburgh etc.

Kent would mean my continued absence, unfortunately.

For purely selfish reasons, ground share with Barnet at the Hive. Close to where we came from, on the Tube, not a million miles from the M1 and M25. Same colours.

Barnet are talking about a new stadium back in Barnet, too.

Not forgetting Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, under which we all seem to be labouring at the moment.

Incidentally, Blaise Pascal - he of the first hand-held calculator fame - was a tax collector in, of all places, Castres.

So if that is to be taken at face value we have a stadium, and a way of financing a club that doesn't rely on Chris Holland but no competition to play in.

This raises a few questions.

Do we have a team?  Players? Coaches? Support staff?

Why do we not have a competition to play in?  Are we trying to force our way back to the top table and being told no?  If so why?

What competition options are there?

I guess if we keep the faith we'll find out in a couple more years.  ::)

A few months there was a statement from within the new entity saying that there 237 players and 37 players avaiable.
