Statement On Behalf Of Richmond Rugby 


“Following the agreement to Yorkshire Carnegie’s CVA by their creditors which has resulted in the players who saved them from imminent relegation being paid only 15p in the pound for the remainder of their contracts, the RFU have decided that Yorkshire Carnegie will remain in the Greene King IPA championship without any sanction whatsoever.

While we, together with much of the rugby community it would seem, are surprised and disappointed with this decision, we look forward to renewing our friendship with the clubs in National 1 in what should be a very competitive and enjoyable season. We regularly have 90 players training during the summer and a large number of new recruits have joined the club. All five of our men’s sides will be as strong as ever.”
