Its all well & good saying we have a contract but a contract is only enforceable if the employer is still in business. 

There is no doubt that the Premiership teams have far more power within the English system than the Celtic nations who are effectively financially tied to the Unions. It is not beyond my imagination to see a well run outfit like the Scarlets decide that it would be commercially advantageous to join the Gallagher Premiership, which is without a doubt the most competitive league in the Northern Hemisphere. 
 
 
We would have to get permission from the rfu and the wru , also under the terms of the premiership we would have to have an academy to produce players for the English national side
 
It would be great for us but it'll never happen,

New initiatives are being tabled virtually on a weekly basis, or least leaked on a weekly basis.

I do worry that France and England will scupper the global season, the argument for summer/spring rugby is strong in my mind, we as supporters who have been brought up with cold & wet rugby, can still have it, we can support our local team, I will when its not raining, so in fact we will get virtually 12 months of rugby. 

There will be changes and we must take them in our stride, what the saying...

If we do what we have always done, we will get what what we always had.....and that has not worked.
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

according to the WOL. The WRU are looking to obtain a loan and then pass the money on to the regions. But also pass the debt onto the regions, they say the reward and the risk will be the regions
 
what do we think about that folks?

It's fair and sensible approach, and we must have signed up to it. There's a wall of CVC cash coming down the road and this keeps us in the game. I'm absolutely certain that in agreeing to this, the PRB will have made sure that at least some of that CVC money will go towards repayment of this debt.

We're still still here!
