that's 10 losses in a row in the HC for the dragons now. saying that, glasgow have the bulk of the scottish team playing for them so maybe glasgow should be expected to win games in europe :scratch: :D

If ever there was a case for regional contraction, this year was it.

Isnt that what Sir Tasker said oh so long ago? And to think that his vision was ridiculed and bastardised by the one eyed wonders :-(

Amongst others at the time, but 2 might be the right number as in Scotland.

Nah we have a much stronger player base than out Jock counterparts. I also think rash decisions now may not benefit in the longer term. Academies are starting to produce and they will need somewhere to ply their trade, isn't that one of the big issues we continually discuss on here? Stick with the 4 for a couple of years then cull if things don't turn around.

TBH I think three in the South and one in the North would be our best bet. Based around the three southern cities and Colwyn Bay for the Gogs. Development of Parc Eirias was kicked off yesterday or the day before, gonna be a fantastic facility to help enfranchise a third of our population who the Turkish robbed of their birthright.

Depends if you want to feeder clubs to England and France or have viable elite teams?

I would rather have 2 fully pro "elite" teams and have a better structure beneath it. There's nothing elite about the Drags or Scarlets. Blues aren't that far off but if the payroll is going down then...

spot on, it would be typical if we went for knee jerk short term reactionary fixes and ended up screwing ourselves over
