Renewed hope for Pontypool RFC

Pontypool RFC could still play Premiership rugby next season, the club's lawyers told a High Court judge today.

The club are fighting to prevent the Welsh Rugby Union relegating them under a reorganisation of Premiership rugby.

The reorganisation would see the number of teams reduced from 14 to 12, with Pontypool set to be one of the teams to lose out.

Today the club's barrister highlighted that there could still be a chance for Pontypool to play in the league.

It's as the Carmarthen Quins have so far failed to obtain a licence relating to the facilities at the club's stadium.

It means Pontypool could have a chance to take their place as the 13th best performing team.
