This is how bad it is; the Surrey Council member of the RFU has been told to write to all the Clubs in his patch to support Martyn Thomas at the RFU; maybe this is being repeated up and down the land. This is because 100 Clubs have called a Special meeting of the RFU Council to place a no confidence vote in Mr Thomas. If he can garner enough letters of support from clubs he can argue against the 100 Clubs motion. That's not the point. He hired and fired John Steele; he hired Martin Johnson. The Blackett Report has outlined why he should resign from the RFU per se not just from the Council.
Twickenham cannot move forward until those responsible for the mess resign.
