Some good stuff in Steff's interview with Nigel in the Rugby Paper.
Small profit, sustainable business now, retained some money for last minute squad improvements.

Impressive how far the club has come off the field in recent times. The parc is our home and is the best club rugby venue in wales. There isn’t many better purpose built club rugby facilities in the UK either.

The only issue is it's probably handicapped by being too big for the real market. I applaud the ambition at the time of it's conception when we were regular Heineken cup KO contenders, but 2000 less seats and a purpose made pre-match hospitality area open to all would have been good in hindsight.


Having said that, Toulon and La Rochelle were epic

Yes I agree with you re size and lack of proper fans zone

Except a makeshift clubhouse when we had the ideal opportunity to make a brand new one.

No Clubhouse. Not even open for away games for supporters to mingle. There are plenty better. Only a few are worse.

Nice one Steff. Always good to see Nigel's plans for the Scarlets. A fantastic effort by all involved to get us into the position we are in now. (Financially not the Challenge Cup!!)
