    If the welsh football clubs went through the rebrands most of the rugby teams have, playing in one of the worst sporting leagues around - Our attendances would be down there.

    before you laugh it would be like newport and cardiff being merged.

    Then moving them into the welsh premier.

    You are aware we got rebranded, aren't you? What would you have done differently re the regions to ensure that Wales remained competitive?

    Yes I am aware tah.

    But that rebrand was nothing in comparison to what occurred in the regions.

    They've got a cash cow in the national team but the pro 12 is turgid to say the least.

    I am told even the people that made the decision to create the regions accept it was a poor decision. But they "had" to make it because so many clubs couldn't be funded.

    Ponty would be far better than the dragons wouldn't they?.

    I don't really even follow rugby that much if I am honest though.

    I get that, but unless you were a Pontypridd supporter, surely Cardiff RFC supporters just carried on supporting the Blues?

    On Boxing day, Cardiff Blues played the Dragons, surely as Welsh regional rugby goes, that's as big a game as there is right?

    Attendance was 11,000

    I've got no real problem with the Egg, I just find it ironic that rugby fans are slagging us off for having attendances they can only dream of.

    It is the league I think which killed most of the support.

    The english premiership is played infront of packed houses every week because clubs have actual identities and it is well covered.

    Not that I follow rugby in wales that much.

    Sport in wales has been poorly managed for quite a while it seems. The Welsh FA have turned the tide though.

    No, they're not. 13.6k a match on average last season, which is pitiful and this includes the big games at Twickenham when Quins sell out. Most people in the UK don't give a monkeys about club rugby.

    Slagging us off for having to restrict capacity on OUR stadium because they were scared there'd be too many empty seats.

    lets be honest, Rugby clubs always used to be fairly full due to the comps they gave away to local clubs

    2 pages is an awful lot for someone apparently nicknamed "brain-dead" by his teammates.
