Black lives matter. We are not a political organisation, but we are aware of our role at the very heart of Welsh culture and the responsibility that comes with that position. There are times when silence can be construed as an endorsement. We must represent all of Welsh society, we know we can, and must continue to, do better and we will. It is all our responsibility to learn and understand the ongoing damage of systemic racism. It is not enough to be non-racist, we must be actively anti-racist in order to create a more equal society.
There is no place for prejudice of any kind in rugby union.

The rugby rules will be the code adopted. The SWFU though were poorly organised, and although they arranged fixtures between a South Wales team and various English clubs, they were often victims of fixture-clashes and were accused of lacking energy. In , Richard Mullock , secretary of the Newport Athletic Club, decided to take matters into his own hands and without the backing of the SWFU organised an international match against England.
The match took place on 19 February , and was won by England seven goals, one dropped goal and six tries to nil. This heavy defeat lay the seeds for further reforms that would lead to the creation of the WRU. There is confusion regarding the official date of creation of the Welsh Rugby Union. In March nine teams supposedly met at the Tenby Hotel, Swansea with the intent of creating a new union.
The issue with accepting this meeting is that there is no written evidence, just oral repetition. On 12 March , eleven clubs met in the Castle Hotel, Neath to form what would be accepted as a Welsh rugby union. After a humiliating defeat in the first Wales international rugby game, the Neath meeting was organised by Mullock to form a union that could organise regular international matches. It is unknown if this was an oversight by the committee to record the presence of the club, or if Neath RFC actually did not attend.

Let’s just run through the rules of the Welsh Rugby Union’s under competition one more time to avoid confusion. This may or may not be the team that gains the most points. Teething problems It is easy to be churlish about the organisational abilities of the Welsh Rugby Union and I’ve never been one to resist easy temptation. In mitigation, the WRU has had to contend with bad weather, the fuel crisis and foot-and-mouth this season so perhaps the embryonic tournament was bound to come out screaming.
But then the WRU have always handled their leagues with all the sure-footedness of a sumo wrestler on roller-skates.

There is no doubt the pandemic has presented challenges, sacrifices, heartache and anxiety. We are under no illusions about the reality of the last three or four months. That said, without getting too philosophical, we can choose to view our future through a lens of hope or one of fear. So, whilst there are tough days ahead, and inevitable challenges as we transition to life with the virus supressed or defeated, I would like to talk about our hopes rather than fears.
We have a vision for how life can be for us in Welsh rugby if we believe that good things will happen. Rest assured everyone at the WRU will graft shoulder to shoulder with you to bring the game back stronger — we will leave nothing on the pitch. During challenging times, it can be difficult to see beyond the day-to-day. However, I have been struck recently by how rugby in Wales can not only survive this pandemic, but could thrive. I am sure many of us have been through a process of re-assessing what really matters in life.
Family, health and well-being are obviously front of mind, but equally the value of community, of social interactions, of our local environment and being part of a larger social circle feel important now. In many ways, rugby is ready made for this moment. The health benefits of sport are self-evident, but what is a rugby club if not a welcoming, social community hub? What is a rugby club if not the product of the collective efforts of players, coaches, referees, volunteers and families?
What is the roar of the Principality Stadium if not the sound of our communities celebrating our collective Welsh identity?

A total of 34 clubs have triggered the EGM as they look to see a return to the old system for allocating money to the community game. The 34 clubs who have forced the WRU to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting over the funding model for the community game have been named, as the date of the meeting is announced.
The aggrieved clubs want a return to the old system for allocating grants to the plus grassroots teams. The 34 clubs want the funding allocation to community clubs, based on a points system, to revert to terms used in the previous season. That system – or audit – is how the WRU decides how much money each club recivies, based on their rugby activities and provisions. Clubs will be informed of the impact the vote will have on their funding, Gilbert ball allocation and ticket allocation ahead of the EGM, which WRU president Gerald Davies will chair.

The Welsh Rugby Union WRU is on the lookout for a new home after confirming that Principality Stadium will be off limits for the remainder of the year. The initial contract with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board was due to run until July 10, but was lengthened through to at least September. We hope to sign the contract shortly. The BBC said the Scotland Six Nations game should still take place on the same date, but the autumn internationals will be replaced by a tournament involving the Six Nations teams and two countries out of Fiji, Japan and Georgia between November 14 and December 5.
A temporary international window between October 24 and December 5 has been recommended.

Search Search. Menu Sections. The Welsh Rugby Union have reached a ‘heads of terms’ agreement with Newport Gwent Dragons as they inch closer to assuming full ownership and control of the region. The WRU announced yesterday that they would take control of the Dragons, in a capacity both on and off the pitch, as well as purchasing Rodney Parade and clearing the region of all historic debts.
The targeted completion date for the takeover is July 1 with all employees moving to a new company, free of debt, which would act as a subsidiary of the WRU. Martyn Phillips, the chief executive of the WRU Group, insisted the move was a rugby decision made in the interest of safeguarding the sport in the Gwent area.

Welsh rugby’s descent in to turmoil is set to continue with court dates having been set for a showdown between the Welsh Rugby Union and Regional Rugby Wales RRW , the umbrella organisation representing the four Welsh regions. The two parties are at loggerheads over Wales’ autumn international against the All Blacks on November 7, which falls outside of the IRB’s designated Test window.
The Blues, Dragons, Ospreys and Scarlets were not contacted by the WRU before organising the fixture, and court dates on September 9, 10 and 11 are set to decide whether or not the regions will be forced to release their players for the game. RRW have obtained a High Court agreement that the game cannot take place without the matter being determined in court. The court date has been set, and we look forward to achieving in court what we have been unable to achieve with the WRU for almost two years – certainty.

Please contact customerservices lexology. Regulation 6. An independent WRU panel found that Howley had used his WRU phone and email account to place bets on rugby union matches across 1, matches between 14 November and 7 September Howley admitted that 24 of those bets were on Connected Events. Howley received an 18 month suspension from rugby with 9 months suspended , backdated so as to begin on 16 September , which was the date on which Howley withdrew from Wales’ World Cup campaign.
This is a relatively unique case of such a high-profile figure within international sport making extensive bets on Connected Events. Indeed, whilst the panel acknowledged that the trigger for Howley’s betting stemmed from a personal family tragedy, it expressed difficulty in understanding why Howley chose to bet on rugby rather than other sports on which he was permitted to bet. Nonetheless, it serves as a timely reminder that in order to preserve a sport’s integrity, those connected with that sport are typically prevented from placing bets on events in which they might be deemed to have access to “inside information”.
