Why is it that there is no promotion and relegation in club rugby in Wales. Pontypool are unbeaten and have gained a try bonus point in 11 of their 13 victories. Pontypool Park regulars deserve a better standard of rugby.

Because its corrupt and self-serving..... big changes on the way im told, but dont see how that will benefit Pontypool. Side im involved with have played them twice and i found them a good set, bit of banter etc to good for the division because of their large wage bill.

It's a bit of a mess because Pontypool didn't get on board with anybody really.

Their money man took over lock, stock and barrel, then money was thrown away on a legal enterprise which was doomed to failure.

Then Pontypool tried to get publicity via a Press Campaign and that didn't generate a lot of support down West.

They might have made friends with the Dragons but that road is now closed to them because the WRU had to buy out the Dragons to keep that franchise going.

Ain't life a bitch?

A bit more calm and well thought out discussion between the clubs might have been useful but Pontypool went public in a volatile way.

Ah well, they're clearly a club with good players but the animosity they show against the people who run rugby in Wales - the WRU - is counterproductive.

It is not so much because of the clubs that would come up, but because of those who would sink

Well summed up.
