Morning all,

many headlines this morning regarding PHW's interview in the Standard screaming 'WE CAN'T COMPETE', which really doesn't tell the full story. We can't compete in some respects, we know that, and that's what the Chairman said.

And he's talking about the clubs whose resources are endless.
