Now that would be great, someone who has made millions but over a lifetime and not through a lucky investment here or there.
But are we expecting any more additions to the board?

Yes. Definitely one more according to Short last week.

I've heard some hints that it might be Doug. Wonder if anyone else has, hence the post

Whereโ€™s a โ€œ groan โ€œ gif when you want one ๐Ÿ˜‚ Letโ€™s hope Doug does want to get more into the Scarlets . Heโ€™s certainly a local man who has excelled in business.

He said there would be "a couple" of new board announcements and one that would "raise a few eyebrows" which was obviously Fitz

Sounds like a Specsaver clue to me.

I never quite understood the 'raise a few eyebrows' comment as that's a phrase normally associated with a mild disapproval of something!
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

I knew he was Welsh, didn't realise from Llanelli. Has he been involved much with the club before? Is he a fan?

In my experience, eyebrow raising can indicate very good or surprising things as well as not so welcome stuff.

Mind you, we have had a lot of practice of looking to the heavens and raising eyebrows in despair at government. Enough manoeuvring to put together a decent mark in an ice skating competition.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.
