    We might have to, it's in our interests that Scotland get out of doldrums.

    We shouldn't.


    THe IRFU have enough issues of thier own to deal with without diverting valuable resources to the SRU.


    The Scottish/ Britishgovernment should be able to help. There are surely grants available or they could come up with some sort of property based financial scheme.


    Either way, there is more than enough resources in Britain to deal with this without the other Unions having to foot the bill.

    Still, back to the present, and if it came to it I'm sure the IRB's more affluent nations will organise a dig-out if no sponsor can be found for Scotland in time. Certainly be in no-one's interest to see Scotland relegated to "B" nation status.


    To their eternal credit, England came to Dublin during that period too. [img]smileys/thumb-up.gif[/img]

    Yep, the Consiel General logo displayedat top left. Have been sposoring Perpignan for some time now, I think some other French teams are actively sponsored by their local/regional governments too, so maybe the Scots can go tapping up their local version of John O'Donoghue.....pity their election is over[img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

    //->Feck the EU. If it gets that bad, the government should step in.

    Don't think the EU would object if the Scottish govt. decided to indirectly "sponsor" the SRFU through say the Scottish Tourism Board or something else (if there is any left) that is still in public ownership in the UK/Alba . Sure come to think of it aren't Perpignan sponsored by their regionalgovernment.
