Tomorrow sees the launch of this year's Six Nations Rugby competition, but not for the first time in the Welsh game, off-field politics is overshadowing affairs on the pitch.
The Welsh Rugby Union remains locked in dispute with the four regional teams over funding, player control and competitions.
The regions have said that unless they can reach agreement with the union by this end of the month, they'll consider joining new tournaments without the WRU's approval.
Former WRU boss David Moffett wants to stand for election as union chairman, and claims that he could solve Welsh rugby's woes in just ten days.
"I've come back because I'm passionate about Welsh rugby. And in recent months I've seen what's happening here", he tells Richard Morgan.
"There is a toxic relationship between the union and the regions. They do not trust each other, they don't like each other, they don't respect each other. I believe I can change that."
