      Dirty rotten smell off this
      My computer thinks I'm gay
      What's the difference anyway
      When all the people do all day
      Is stare into a phone

        Think this is a load of hot air. We will know little until tomorrow's meeting is concluded.

          Nobody goes into a big money meeting unless they know the outcome already and why are the Welsh players already dropping hints in BBC?

            I agree,RRW want to destroy Roger Lewis either way.

              I'm struggling. Surely the Welsh Union aren't going to sanction this? And the regions can't go without their approval. I don't buy the "too much hassle" line. Effectively hand their domestic game over to the Sais? What could be that much hassle?

                Henryfitz has it right, a negotiating position.

                      Welsh players seem to feel they are playing beneath themselves in the Rabo. Sign is on they can churn out grand slams, so it's not all self regarding. However, if they get caught up in the AP, they won't be long losing whatever it is makes them work nationally. They'll be ground down.

                        You just wouldn't know what might happen. There have been some seriously treacherous moves, not least the Celtalians caving in along with the RFU to the PRL only for a bloody frenchman to come in and save the day...and even he only did they because he got his balls rolled by the 6N committee for his part in the Ireland/FRance debacle.

                        Christ I am sickened of this whole thing. None of these feckers are to be trusted.
                        Browne is a classic poor-mouth and is using the media and the uncertainty to try and drill the players on contracts and the province's on funding whilst the IRFU build up their reserves. I don't even know what sort of game Lewis is playing, I don't trust him either. Camou only vetoed the whole RCC carry on because, as I said above, he dislikes the 6N committee more than the ERC. Ritchie is a spineless twat and McCafferty (Smith, WRay and Craig) all focking snakeoil salesmen.

                          How can the Aviva afford 20 million on 4 welsh regions when half their own clubs could use that money to stay afloat.I call B/S.

                            Maybe BT can afford it.

                              PLCs dont usually hand out 20 million as a gesture of good will.

                                PRL will shaft anyone who goes in with them. They cannot be bothered to even pretend there will be any benefit for any one else so the reality would be like the Gobi desert. And the international game will be next target in the w'nkers cross hairs if they get this. This is an existential battle of that there is no doubt. And Owain was right it is good against evil, what PRL are up to is naked self interest. They will destroy everyone else to maintain themselves, f'cking cnuts.
