The plot thickens.
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.

Thanks for the heads up but one of our committee, Helen, attended Scarlets Board meeting last Thursday and asked about this very subject. There have been no approaches from either side regarding WRU involvement in the running of the Scarlets.

The governing body fully running one team out of four could well cause some problems. We'll have to wait and see.

Well done Helen.  She a top lass.  Haven't seen her for a while and look forward to catching up with her soon.  Scarlets supporters and fans should be very appreciative of the excellent work that Crys16 do and also that the club is quite open with it's engagement and answers.  It's the best interaction of any of the pro sides in Wales.

Not on ScrumV, but it's definitely on the table. Seems like Uncle Pete's really had enough. Blues to be split from Cardiff RFC and run by the WRU. Similar deal as at Dragons, where the WRU is fed up with them using their RSA money to fund Newport RFC rather than at least trying to build a team at the Dragons.

Ours and the Ospreys' fate is less clear, but the Ospreys seem the least keen on WRU taking a stake in them I believe.

This

OK Thanks. Well I only know what I've been told by a fairly knowledgeable source, that Dragons spend less than the RSA funding on the 1st team. Also the latest accounts seem to show that the entire losses were funded by the WRU loan facility, not the funding directors. To me this indicates that the funding directors have given up.

Are you saying that my source and others who claim that the squad bill is closer to £2.5m than £3.5m are misinformed then? The "extra money" that will strengthen the squad will come from the separation of Dragons from NRFC and is not extra money at all.

Is what I've been told!!

And by the way I've read the accounts and I can also see exactly how much has been leveraged against Rodney Parade.

I wrote quite a detailed, lengthy reply last night and when I hit post,  it came up as error and deleted everything.  I blame Barry for not putting 50p in the meter.  Wink  Anyway, I can't be arsed typing it all again,  but would be more than happy to discuss with anyone in person as a lot of the minutiae  can either be lost or take too much time to explain on line. I should be at the Edinburgh game and there should be further developments by then.  If anyone from Crys16 or anyone else wants to discuss what's happening and have some first hand info, most of you know who I am already and we could arrange a meet-up at the next match for a chat.
