I don't often agree with much that comes out of Wales online but this, http://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/rugb ... -11354983? appears to have much good sense about it and has some credence given Hore has been involved actively in both hemispheres.

Worth a look, TV revenue is the major killer for all countries other than England & France and there is common cause with the rest if our leagues are not to be sucked dry of talent in the long run.

I've always feared our league ending up in a position of the Irish League & increasingly the Scots also in relation to the English in wendyball.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

It's equally difficult to see where the value is in the Pro12 for TV companies other than filling their schedules. Nobody in Wales seems interested enough to turn up to watch their national sport, so where's the TV interest? Rugby in Scotland is a non event so there's no value there. Italy........ That leaves Ireland with a small population, a split market and the only teams with a real following (plus Munster).

Would people be against working with the PRL in a combined Ireland England league?
