Major funder has pulled out.

Only 9 players left under contract and the club are currently negotiating severance packages to finish these.

Club wants to operate as semi pro for next season.

Geech to step down from board at the end of the month.

They also went bust

That club should not be in that state.

Produced so many players through the years

But i can see it happening to more.

Another case to ring fence the top 13/14.

That isn't good from and English rugby point of view. Their's is a huge catchment area and is somewhat of a rugby hotbed (participation more than spectaor). I wonder what is going to happen with their RFU academy?

Could be taken over by Doncaster they are a stable top half Championship side. Bad times for Yorkshire rugby with Rotherham's relegation last year as well.

The number of sportsmen that come from Yorkshire is huge. We don't want to see league make off with the entire rugby contingent.

I don't like they took on the mantle of Yorkshire but you have to feel slightly sorry for the fans even if they are from Leeds.

I don't know if it is possible but I always felt the RFU should have looked to enter Yorkshire in the pro14 and do a joint venture with the SRU to fund the team and give the up and coming a place to shine. Not sure the PRL would if allowed it but it would of helped with developing rugby in North England on a better footing.
