Seems to be strong rumours flying about on Twitter about a big announcement tomorrow morning. It's embargoed, Moffett has reappeared on Twitter.

EDIT - He's going. October 31st.

Gone!!!!! Glad to see the back of him. Egomaniac who caused far more problems than he solved. Need a very good man to replace him and get things back on track.
I've seen the truth ... and I don't understand it!

The damage he's done to Welsh rugby will take years to recover from, if we ever do.

Goodbye and good riddance, you absolute disgrace.

I don't feel much pleasure really. His decade of austerity is the main contributing factor to our current malaise, and the only solace I can really take from it all is that we're still here to witness him leave and that we will never have to suffer him in an administrative position in any sport ever again. The sycophancy of the WRU lackeys and business partners will be nauseating for the next few days but a necessary evil to get rid of him.

I just hope we can bounce back. Good riddance Roger; never pollute West Wales with your nonsense again.

The BBC and other media gushing in their praise. At least Gareth Charles went some way to telling the truth by pointing out that he may have concentrated too much on team Wales at the expense of grass roots.

The truth is that his reforms have no foundation and that the success can only be short term. There is no thought for ongoing success or development (unless you consider us a breeding ground for French club rugby). At least Gareth Davies' appointment has ushered in dual contracts with the hope that the names stay and make the regions stronger.
I still have concerns about the terms of the DCs and the uncompetitiveness of the regions during international windows.

Me too but at least now we can look forward to the possibility of someone working with us not against us. Getting out of the moribund pro12 would be my wish.

Is it too early in the day for a celebratory pint?

Hopefully Welsh rugby can start moving forward now and find someone to make sure we're all pulling in the right direction, Roger's made a lot of enemies in World rugby over the past few years at all levels and the only saving grace was that his ego ensured that a lot of the baggage will leave with him rather than taint the new CEO and chairman.
 
I think his biggest achievement is being the probably inspiration for the rumoured Spitting Image return.
 
In most cases you'd say good luck and good riddance, in this case it's just good riddance.

When he started his job there were 3 competitive regions in Wales, plus 1 (NGD) that would give anyone a game at home, on their day.

Look at the legacy he's leaving. He's been an absolute disaster of a CEO.
