Since 1995, the outlook hasn't changed. It's either Club or Country. No space for Regions. e.g. Pontypridd is only aj few miles from Cardiff but they hate each other and Ponty would plan a Welsh League at the same time as Cardiff play a European game, primarily to ensure their supporters aren'ttempted to go to the EPCR game.

No chance of solving that unless a Welsh Region wins something big. As soon as that happens, the others will follow suit and support Regions.


Thats a good point, regional rugby there is like the Railway Cup here. But also Ospreys have done the best as theyre the most regional


This was exactly the problem with the Borders. Or so I'm told.

Tom Coleman‏ @LeinsterRoyalty

With home pro12 semi final this year Leinster total tickets sales surpass €9.5m
That's right. Just ticket Sales.

:shock: :D :clap:

Given how few home games we get our star players for that's a hugely impressive figure.

That is good
Plus I suspect season ticket sales will go up next season

Clickbait media picking this up with glee but president of The Kings reckons the Cheetahs and they can join pro12, despite the cost, logistics in general, most of their players leaving, clash of seasons, clash with Currie Cup, SA fans wouldnt give 2 hoots, etc
