WRU welcomes regions' chance to discuss 'issues related to their progress'

The Welsh Rugby Union says it is delighted that the four regions have sought to attend a meeting of the Union's board to "discuss issues related to their progress and development."

They said they invited them earlier this year to "present to the board of the WRU on a range of issues."

The WRU has not received confirmation of the Regions’ desire to attend the next full board meeting but looks forward to doing so and will ensure the attendance is confirmed on the prepared agenda.
