Re: The 6 nations is dead

I’ll confess to not knowing the ins and outs but I’m sure the WRU made a loss in 2019 and a £2m profit in 2018. Doesn’t sound greedy to me. Now competence is a different matter but it’s not like even disgustingly large senior salaries can hide the fact that there’s not a huge surplus of money swash...

Definitely feeling like England got away with another crap selection by out enthusing their opposition (who totally shat the bed).
