16/14 teams makes no difference just getting a league that is suitable and sustainable. Don’t think that is too much to ask. 

Maybe you should look through impartial eyes occasionally rather than with whatever issue you have with this league. It is rugby and I believe we all want what is best for the game

I have no issue at all with the championship, apart from the fact it should have made a decision about next seasons format before this season started.

Teams in N1 and N2 are well into their season not knowing how many teams will be promoted at the end of the season.

Even the RFU are not that incompetent!

14 teams otherwise you create more leagues within the leagues with 16. There used to be 3 to 4 leagues within the league.  Currently it’s all pretty competitive.

I have said this many times before when we were 16, Blues would have youngsters from the academy mixed up with some 1st and 2nd choice and still win with 60 odd points. These games were not as well supported as everyone knew the result and it was a question of how many.

If we go to 14 it should be either 2 down or 1 down and play off for 13th v 2nd.
