I just removed the speedy deletion template. Having a template for a specific season means the information won't be lost the following season, i.e. this template can be used on the players' article pages forever and doesn't need to be removed when the player leaves the club. However, it is duplicating Template:Edinburgh Rugby squad, so that template must be redirected to this one. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 10:35, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Are all squad navbox templates required from season to season? In my opinion, to keep only squad navbox template for the current season is better, and the champion squad template should be remain for one champion team by one season. Sawol (talk) 01:47, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
How is it better to just have current information and not historical information too? Why not have historical squads, if available? TheMightyPeanut (talk) 06:58, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Historical squads have already been included in each season article like 2014–15 Edinburgh Rugby season. This is sufficient. Suppose that a man has played for 10 seasons. Then the article for him attaches at least 10 templates. It repeats itself uselessly. The same information is stated in {{Infobox rugby biography}}, the text, and squad template.

The same information isn't stated in {{Infobox rugby biography}} – that doesn't give you an indication of which team-mates he played with, etc. You stated above you'd like to keep for the "champion team". It someone plays for a successful team, then the same arguments above could apply. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 09:11, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
An example of the baseball season squad like Template:2013 Boston Red Sox is desirable. The champion club's squad isn't even make in football. Sawol (talk) 09:25, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Having concise and pertinent information at hand to provide to the reader of the article is desirable. Why have templates for champions and not non-winning teams when it gives a better indication of a player's career? TheMightyPeanut (talk) 09:31, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
If that is unfair between champions and not non-winning teams, any seasonal navbox could not be allowed. Could we spread the discussion through Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Rugby union? Sawol (talk) 12:50, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
