Rugby must move
Although I am a keen Bath Rugby supporter, I am feeling increasingly uneasy about the prospect of a new large stadium on the Rec.
Of course it would be great to keep the club where it is, but now, having looked closely at the latest consultation document with the charity commission and having now begun to realise the fact that any new stadium would have such a massive impact on the city and it's heritage, I am coming round to the conclusion that any stadium would be far better sited at Lambridge.
There the club would be able to create something much more in line with Bruce Craig's aspirations to build a world class facility something that I can't see happening at the Rec in view of all the limitations the site presents.
The idea of moving off to a new ground is not unusual, Exeter and Saracens spring to mind, plus many football clubs I know.

I really do not accept the protestations of some of your correspondents who claim that Lambridge is too far from the centre and those that claim that the economic vitality of the city would suffer irreparable harm.
This is all scaremongering. I also resent being characterised as an overweight, beer drinking supporter with no other interest in life other than rugby.
The risks to the city's World Heritage status and the historic setting is too much to take. I would really be interested to know how many other rugby supporters like me are prepared to acknowledge this in their hearts.
