1) Surely this could have been added to one of the plethora of threads complaining about the league?
2) We have seen similar in the Gallagher Premiership this season. Sometimes the technology fails, at least there was a back up solution.


I get that you dislike the organisation of the Pro 14. I have had sympathy with some of your complaints, but TBH Pro14 seems to be heading in the right direction and is improving all the time.

I wholeheartedly disagree. It is killing the team I have followed for 35 years, plus the sport in the country in which I live - and I'm sad that you feel annoyed that I use my right to express this.

It happened in international rugby the other week too. Wales match? Not that uncommon. Sensible way around it rather than having no comms?

Killing the Scarlets? They've had a bad year this year but it was only two seasons ago they humiliated both Leinster and Munster in the league finals in Ireland and they reached the semi final of the HC only last season. Injuries have ruined them this season.

No idea which team you follow, but the fragmented approach to professionalism by Welsh Clubs and the WRU 20 years ago is surely the biggest impact.

Given that in many ways the organisation of Pro14 seems to be ahead of PRL and LNR what would you like to be different? Wales is unable to support it's own pro League. They turned down a chance to join an Anglo Welsh league, a chance that is unlikely to come again. I believe that Cardiff and Swansea may have boycotted the Welsh Premiership way back when.

So I get you do not like the Pro14. I get that you want to vent even though, imo, much of the to me a mountain is being made out of a molehill. But.......what do you want to change?

To be fair I don't think the wru and the regions need that much help from the pro 14 in killing the game in Wales

He wants what he can't have. This magic unicorn where the English take them in.

And it says everything you need to know about him that he constantly has to have someone else to "blame" . Absolutely no sense of taking responsibility..

He claims to be a Scarlets supporter yet he never talked about them when they just had their golden period and now he is so worried about their future, when nothing has really changed. They are probably the best supported region with a good squad that was hit with injuries this season.

Journalist?
WOL blogger?
Same thing?
Just because one dingleberry makes a tweet regarding a technology glitch suddenly the Pro14 is a failure?

To be fair, Southcombe is a terrible churno and he’s not alone there. You can’t take any output from anything WOL based seriously, bar when Simon Thomas was there. Mark Orders is ok generally too.
