Amazing that the Edinburgh 8 are still left out but Basteraud is captain after what he did.

Was there not an article that explained that the 'Edinburgh 8' punishment was a cover-up to hide the fact that, when France lost to Scotland and it became obvious they couldn't win championship, the team owners demanded their players back?

Surely Mad Bernie would never allow that to happen? How many Montpellier players are among the 8 by the way?

The 6 Nations table has a very Pro14 look to it might I say. Although, in Englands last six 6 Nations games only Italy and Wales failed to beat them.
The Pro14 is so chyte!

Its just short of E86M, up E9M on the previous year. That's about £76M, big diff.

How do the WRu make more than us? Surely the provinces feed into the Irfu books no?

Average home attendance of 69,000 was a big part of it, making them E51M compared to our E42M.

Wales also own their stadium so get the full benefit of other events held there.

Indeed. The WRU prefer to host a monster truck event in the MS in mid May rather than bid for the Pro 14 final.

4th out of window AI is a big money spinner in attendance and TV revenue I'd imagine. Think it's about 4m. Also if you have a look at the breakdown the concerts etc netted about 4m in hospitality.

To put it in perspective, the average attendance for a Welsh game at the Principality is probably higher than the Dragons entire attendance for a season.
