That's a bit ridiculous to be honest.

RGC isn't a region or have I missed that? RGC is a club side within our region surely?

no not a region but the area is now WRU controlled if that’s the right term to use.

I'm all for spreading the Scarlets word and brand, and that includes playing at lesser grounds so to speak to generate some rugby interest in that area so I propose we move 2/3 of our home games this season against say some of the weaker sides like the Kings and Dragons to the Liberty Stadium.

I strongly suspect Rob is just doing Ems, who coaches the U12's I think, a favour-doesn't he live in Pwll.

North Wales is still linked to Scarlets. For example two RGC players turned out for the Scarlets Premiership select last season. Although some of the control and development has been passed down to RGC and the WRU to try and promote things via RGC up North.

Although, with the rise of RGC, I don't know how long it will be until they become a proper region, I guess it depends on the Dragons. If they do, being from North Wales, I'll have to make a big decision. I've supported the Scarlets since the inception of regional rugby as they are my region. If RGC become a region, do I continue to support the Scarlets or answer the RGC call!

I can't see any chance of RGC ever becoming a region.

I see no problem with the scarlets playing the odd pre season or junior / u23 game up north...
BUT is it the ambition of RGC to become a region ? is that discussed up there? Is there some kind of template for this? Are we talking 5 to 10 years? what was the average home crowd last season?
For what its worth I would love to see the ambition for a north wales rgc region and I hope it happens
You have the stadium, the facilities and the catchment area for fans and perhaps players too
Progress has been rapid in the last few years....From lower division team to top of the welsh prem and cup holders in less than 5 years. In the meantime, even as a strong club and juniors sections, its surely great for welsh rugby to see playing participation numbers and fans rising up there. No doubt we will see other stars come through the system like George North

If watered right who knows if this seed may grow?

Surely the catchment area is less than for the Dragons? I cannot see RGC becoming a 5th region so logic says that one of the other regions must disappear or god forbid merge.

north wales is estimated at 750,000 wrexham is estimated 136000
There are no pro sports teams in north wales at all so no competition

The rgc is a dream with solid foundations though and if it materialises it will take years 
but Id never say never

As for newport we dont necessarily have to disband the dragons in order to have RGC region one day, theyre not mututally exclusive, if augers well we may have both

Dont forget the wru debt is nearly paid off which frees up a lot of extra funding for our national sport
Dragons have been a shambles from day 1 though and the wru takeoever will hopefully see them get back on track with far stronger squads and better relations with feeder clubs and fans

We need to see regional losses falling and revenues increasing. The scarlets have certainly improved this past few years, the concerts alone have been a big boost
