So the war between the Welsh Rugby Union and the 4 regional teams has reached the courts. Today, a judge ruled that players must be released by the clubs to join up with the Wales squad on Monday. What can the players think of this. The clubs (which pay their salaries) are being forced by a court of law to allow them to attend training with the Wales squad. If they read BBC Wales online tonight they will see that the Chief Executive of the WRU has issued a statement that is not far short of 'gloating' about his 'victory' over their employers. That's what I call statesmanlike - or not! I wonder how many points all this is worth to the Springboks.
There are two quotes that I particularly like.
David Moffett, head of Regional Rugby Wales said "This causes a serious deterioration in relations between us and the WRU" Like thats possible !
Roger Lewis, Chief Executive of the WRU said "We'll now put this matter behind us". Oh yes - and Nick Clegg will be the next Prime Minister !
