    I have said over ten years ago we needed an eight team Welsh Premiership . Why does it take so long to see this sensible and correct decision .

If it is to be a proper league underpinning the regions then there should be a strict salary cap which is policed properly.
Also a salary floor. 
Being really Tirydail here (sorry GPR) but what is a salary floor is it the opposite of a ceiling ???genuine question.
A floor is where the water lands when youhave repaired a ceiling Wink

because 4/6 sides don’t want to be removed from the prem for non playing reasons, you would expect cardiff llanelli newport and swansea to be nominated along side rcg. So tge likes of llandovery ponty bridgend could all miss out

Think WRU want to go back to the old merit style league well known teams like years ago 

Be interesting to see who would get the three wild picks if it is one feeder club from each region and RGC in the new league

I personally dont think the regions, if they get to choose who, should choose the club in the same locality as the region i.e. Llanelli, Swansea,Cardiff &Newport, only for the reason that they should expand the region outside the town/city. I think that it would have a positive effect on the new 8 team super league. Let those 4 clubs join the next division down.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

Surely this should be based on meritocracy. Without a doubt Llandovery are the leading feeder club to the Scarlets.

The meeting is at 11.00am. Its clear that change is needed, but changing the gender balance and increasing the ratio of NEDs is not going to solve the problems facing the professional game in Wales at the moment.
The bit I am struggling with is that the existing board, who have got Welsh rugby into the mess its currently in, are asking the clubs to vote for them and the changes they are proposing to sort out the mess they have made.
Its a real mess!
