It's hard to see how these established clubs are going to accept the WRU proposals for an 8 team elite/ development league to feed the Regions.
there are going to be some big clubs missing out or sone of the best run clubs. The big historical clubs eg us swansea and neath should on results all miss out. Not sure the 8 club thing will get in which is a shame as it is needed tbh

It may suit those who want to improve and get more funding as a reduced welsh prem will raise standards and concentrate more funding between fewer teams...Theres also rules on facilities being improved etc The regions / wesh prem clubs need to have far stricter rules too on drafting squad players who are not involved in regional games that particular week..Jiffy is always on about the fact these young players are simply not playing enough games and hes right. If theyre not playing draft them out to the clubs...

So too gatlands unused squad players are often wasted throughut the 6 nations. Look at patchell played abut half an hour in 6 weeks...Heck they reckon ray grav was so mad keen on playing as a teenager hed cram in 2 or 3 junior matches a dayLOL

So who funds the player's wages, £50,000 a year will scaresly fund two players let alone a squad.  Or do the WRU give them all much more than that?
stan and peter thomas prob fund the cardiff and merthyr players wages, guys like fish beck haberfield and allen are not playing for free. others rely on bar takings ticket sales and local sponsors like any club really. Don’t llandovery have like a camping site they own? Quins let the club house for functions etc
think they own the caravan park next door to tge pitch

They all get same money from WRU 78k I was told if they go over that comes out of their own pockets like sponsors or benefactors 

Llandovery rent out the land around them to caravaners so bring a lot of income from that 
Quins have functions room let for parties and in my opinion should consider renting their training ground to caravaners bring in income if rumours I heard last that their benefactor was walking away

Welsh Rugby Union | Wales & Regions | Richard Collier-Keywood and Alison Thorne join WRU Board

An opportune moment to thank Ieuan Evans for taking on the Chair role and being 100% behind the reforms from day 1, which he knew would see him replaced within a matter of months.

There's been plenty of people questioning his capability and motives but he's seen the changes through and I've seen absolutely nothing to suggest he's done it out of self interest, he's always been an advocate of a more professional WRU and he's now seen that through unlike so many that sat back and did nothing.

Diolch Ieuan.

Yes, we’ll done Ieuan, a club legend, one of my favourite ever players.  He’s come in, forced through the changes that we all knew needed to happen - not an easy job because it required him persuading turkeys to vote for Christmas, and has now he’s made himself surplus to requirements.  
This is in complete contrast to previous holders of the role, who just accepted it as a cushy number (usually for a number of years) without having to much.
Diolch Ieuan.

Welsh rugby is set for a significant shake-up with a 10-team league, sitting between the regional and semi-professional game, expected to get given the go ahead for the 2024/25 season.

The Welsh Rugby Union has been in talks with its key stakeholders for months in a bid to find a way to bridge the gap between the semi-professional game and the professional game.

Originally, the plan was to have an elite eight-team league but they have reached a compromise of 10 clubs. Crucially, this new competition will be under the control of the Professional Game Board, not the Community Game board
