    Welsh plan to cut one pro team

    The Welsh Rugby Union have put forward proposals to cut the number of professional sides in Wales from four to three in two years’ time.

    Cardiff, Dragons, Ospreys, and Scarlets have struggled for success over several years with crowd numbers dwindling in Wales. All four sides have posted significant losses, which have been exacerbated by the Covid pandemic, while they have been saddled with a collective £20 million bank loan that will have to be paid back over 20 years.

    Ah well, that'll set them up for success. Maybe they should accelerate the improvement and cut two teams, just to be sure...

    Based upon that logic, Australia need to immediately transition to -5 professional rugby teams to ensure we win the next World Cup
