Post CHAMPIONSHIP
An entertaining top of the table game between Bristol and Ealing Pathfinders. Bristol triumphed even though they had to survive a double yellow card in the last quarter.

I have watched several televised Championship games this season, most are very well attended, in line with the Pro 14 I suspect, and the standard of rugby is also on a par with the Pro 14. I feel it would be advantageous for the Welsh Regions to exit the Pro 14 and combine with the English Leagues. No more long hauls to away games in Ireland, Italy and Scotland, and now South Africa. This travelling is exhausting to our teams. The Scarlets should be included in the Premiership and the remaining three into the Championship. Three teams should be promoted and demoted each season, and that includes the bottom three of the Championship.

Professionalism and Regional rugby destroyed many prestige clubs, Swansea, Neath, Pontypridd, Coventry and London Welsh, to name just a few. Why should the system be protecting our present top clubs or regions from extinction, if they cannot meet the pace they should get relegated. It would also be an enticement for every rugby club in the land to progress - remember Treorchy R F C and their climb to stardom.

This is either a terrible wind up attempt, or you are actually an idiot.

About the first part , I saw Ealing against Bedford , (both of whom Ponty have played in pre season game in the last couple of years ,) it was a very good game , can't say about the rest of his daydream though, people got to realise the English don't need Welsh teams in their leagues or want them .
