We, the undersigned, declare that the current ‘regional’ organisation of professional Welsh rugby:
does not reflect the traditional culture, communities or localities of the game in Wales;
has failed to command the loyalty of supporters beyond the pre-regional fan-base of the City Clubs and Llanelli RFC;
We call on the WRU to recognise the failings of the existing structure and to urgently reform regional rugby.
has left many Welsh rugby fans, especially in the South Wales Valleys, without any professional rugby teams to support;
and has led to an uncompetitive concentration of power and financial resource in the hands of the WRU and the regional super clubs.
