Just when Welsh Rugby was starting to look good again!
Salary caps are a daft idea – especially when you’re the only ones signing up to them.
Just as Welsh Rugby is beginning – on the back of the Celtic League, the regional structures and European competition – to recover some of the passion and excitement of times past, the lords and masters of the country’s national game saddle them with this salary cap.
Any bets on the best players all being in France or England within five years?
