The amateur club is still going and hopefully they'll be able to regroup and work their way back up the English rugby pyramid as both Richmond and London Scottish have done. For the last few years they've been a role model of how not to run a professional rugby team. Poor management, some shady dealings internally and being strung along by dodgy "investors" who were never going to be able to invest.

Honestly that's the right call. They're not good enough.

"They supplied seven players to the victorious 1971 British and Irish Lions squad in New Zealand, a figure that remains a record for the number of players from one club in a Lions squad."

That stat immediately seems wrong. Maybe most from an English club.

I remember both Leicester and Munster having 8 named. Thomas o leary fecked himself up and Quinnie helped our head coach with his eyesight. Can't remember what happened to Leicester players

8 Leicester players went in 2005, admittedly there 44 players on that tour not 30
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Nothing to do with their abillity. Dodgey business dealings is all.

They were actually mid table in the championship until they had 20 points deducted last month.
