  • Welsh Premiership Could Be Set For Expansion

    Discussions are underway about the possibility of expanding the Welsh Premiership from 12 teams to 16, according to reports from across the Severn Bridge. The potential move is partly in response to the decision taken by the four Welsh regions to field regional A sides in the British and Irish Cup next season instead of one Premiership club from each region but that change is yet to be ratified by the WRU.

  • London Welsh Appeal Successful

    London Welsh have won their appeal against the Rugby Football Union (RFU) ruling which had prevented them from being promoted. The RFU had initially ruled that the club had failed to meet the Minimum Standards Criteria (MSC) which are required to be eligible for promotion to the Aviva Premiership. The appeal panel ruled that the RFU’s MSC contravenes EU and UK competition law, meaning that the Exiles are promoted at the expense of Newcastle Falcons. In a statement, London Welsh said: “The cl...
