If this was crucial then it again shows that this league is not fit for purpose

On sir, great idea daft timing, who do we play our last 3 fixtures against?

Don't know but a Dragons fan of mine said they are playing Leinster & Glasgow in 2 of the 3 matches.

€2m to the WRU first though before it comes to us though unfortunately isn't it? 
By the time WRU get their ideas floating about on how to spend the pro clubs money, the pro clubs may be able to afford a Mars bar each. Unless of course I am mistaken and every penny will rightfully make its way to the pro clubs.

It’s ever so easy to spend other people’s money.

It’s just like claiming expenses.

Or being on the gravy train.

So many distractions from the main purpose of the WRU existence - to promote the game; the professional game; as well as the grassroots.

Competition money is always pass through though. I would be very surprised if that wasn't contractual
We're still still here!

So if we sell a share of our future competition income to CVC, we’d get that money, n’est-ce pas?

Oh, we didn’t.

Contract shmontract.

With the amount of money lost this season due to no fans the 500k payment is massive. That covers a contract for one or 2 players next season.

What is the actual structure of the competition though? Is it 1 big league table between the 12 teams and then top 2 play a final?

Truth be told, I don't know if anyone knows!! The fixtures for rounds 4-6 are known by the sides in the competition but I don't think they are public knowledge yet.

All SA team games are scrapped.

Shame for those SA based players with aspirations to play v The Lions...team will now look to overseas based players for most selections ( in my view).
