    Posted: 20 March 2017 at 8:56pmI think internationally Wales is a rugby nation.Come international time, every man and his dog have opinions (swiped from scrum v or tinterweb).So most people looking in at us will see the majority of the population as 'rugby fans'.The truth is, I believe that as club story goes Wales is really a football nation, as other than during the internationals I rarely hear anyone at work taking rugby.

    Posted: 20 March 2017 at 5:15pmThe ARU has been short of cash for a few years now. It isn't just finance- they haven't got enough quality players to fill the rosters either. The politics of Super Rugby makes grim reading and apparently the current structure means everyone is getting less of what they want- Saffer teams want to play NZ teams but now play them less is just one of the many complaints.
