the wru have just sold out the 6 nations tickets which were the most expensive in their history so all this bullpoo about no money is rubbish they get 1 more game every autumn than most of the other teams and had the f.a. using our facility whilst Wembley was being done,they have diluted the game so much in wales that it's no wonder nobody bothers to watch it any more.

I am new to this debate but I heard that pretty much zero rugby clubs in the English premiership make money so rugby union generally is all a bit of a shambles... in that context £1m losses don't actually sound too bad for the regions. 

It's a worry how dependent the Welsh game is on the internationals at Principality, if Wayne has a year of poor form for Wales like he has with us this year -- attendances wont exactly increase!

Very fragile system.

Just back from the meeting. Looks like the four regions will stay the same for the forseable future.

I think I’m right in saying that only Exeter turned a profit recently out of all the premiership clubs.

A lot of project reset hasn't been finalised but the main things I can remember from tonight is that next season's budget hasn't been finalised. The new coach will arrive in July. Steff Evans will be a Scarlet player next season. Premier sport's are very happy with subscriptions. It's exceeded there expectation.

Nor me. Not out of spite, but from lack of attachment.

I can understand that sentiment, but should this ever happen God forbid, I would want to build that feeling of attachment into the next generation i.e let my kids and grandchildren have the same sense of belonging that I felt.  I would feel compelled to move on, hard as it would be.
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

The CRYS16 Board would like, on behalf of its members, to thanks Nigel and Jon for their honesty and openness last night. We are fortunate to have them in the Scarlets family. Understandably there were some things that they could not divulge, but that was mainly for reasons of commercial sensitivity, bearing in mind that the negotiations with regard to Project Reset are not yet complete.

Thanks also to the staff at PyS who ensured that the evening ran smoothly, in particular we'd like to thank Alys, Debbie, Natalie and the bar staff.

We look forward to seeing you all again on March 12th.

Hwyl am nawr.

One of the Board members made notes last night, and we will submit these to Jon and Nigel for their approval. We will then send out a summary to members in due course.
