To be fair the pack has been going very well over the past few weeks, if you’ve seen all the games!
You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

So have we won 2 or 3 games now? I am unsure if the BBC website has been updated.

Horrible to think that we may be out of the Premiership come season end. Can't help but think the bigger towns/cities, with their storied history must keep their place in the Premiership and it be a place where relegation can't raise its head. It's the development ground for the future. Teams like Llanelli, Swansea, Cardiff, Newport, Aberavon, Ponty, Bridgend, Neath, Merthyr* and Ebbw Vale need to retain their place. It is very difficult to get the members of the WRU to approve this though.

* I appreciate that Merthyr is a footy town and has little history but it is a larger conurbation.

Thank goodness for some good news today.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Great win and typically I was away and missed it ! So very happy after our long day trip to RGC! We should now be looking forward to beating Neath away next week but will the game also be pulled by the Union and momentum lost?? Bedwas are very unhappy to lose a planned fixture v Neath and mess Sponsors around for no faults of their own and feel they should have the 4 points. No disrespect to Neath who always give us a decent welcome, but it’s semi professional sports and a tough world with relegation on the table with huge financial ramifications. Is the decision to grant postponements right in the circumstances Neath are in ?
The truth is that most Premiership clubs have financial problems and taking a gamble in doing everything to stay in the league.

Thats what happens when you feed the region, wales 7, region u23 and a senior rfc team. Theres never going to be consistency in game day squads
Llanelli also take without fair compensation from local teams like Felinoel, Llanelli Wanderers, Kidwelly, Llangennech and Emlym.

For example Llanelli Wanderers had a youth team that almost won the Welsh cup 4 years ago and ended up with 2 boys playing regular rugby for them thanks to boys being poached by Llanelli. If you can’t produce players don’t pay them.

Many of the teams in the Prem, especially those linked closest to a region, are effectively a regional Championship Select 15.
