That's May sorted then. Roger must do hell of a sales pitch, fair play to him.

Not good for rugby in general. The old boy network strikes again, should have gone to Italy, if you consider the tournament to be pan European.
It's not always about where you end up, it's about how you get there.

I'm happy that the final will be played at the Millennium, it is one of only a handful of rugby stadia capable of hosting such an event in Europe. Anything that highlights club rugby within Wales, as opposed to the international game, has to be good for the club game.

What I'm not happy with is that smug tool who, by his own policies, is happy that his "feast of rugby in Wales" is more than likely to have zero Welsh representation. It just proves to me even more that he is a conglomerate leech of a businessman with no interest in the game he is happy to bleed dry for his own personal gain.

I take it that Roger Lewis is off your Christmas card list then.

Only thing is Roy, it is Woger batting. Knowing him he'd be a better no.11 than Ashton Agar!!

Plus Marshall would pull up in his run up tweaking a hamstring. Change bowler would be Tino Best!!
Think, think, think - it's a thinking man's game!! - The Great Carwyn James.
Just for our SA friends - Weste is die beste!
