Italians are in for a few more years under the current agreements, I understand. Any change from that would be difficult one way or another.

Adding one or more teams might be another matter altogether with the lure of more revenue, much-needed revenue.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

In what way do you think? It would mean a reduction in gate receipts.
it would also mean no game played during international period
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

We'd still lose players to the Wales squad for training - doesn't Gatland get two weeks before tests with them?
I've seen the truth ... and I don't understand it!

It's a bargain land grab that doesn't bode well for rugby in Newport imo.

Dragons shareholders voted yes - 81% apparently.
