There isn't enough interest to sustain regional thread on here, other than the Dragons, so thought it was worth creating a general Welsh club rugby discussion thread.

We know how these have gone before with tribalism and, eventually, people leaving when the trolling and antagonism gets too bad, so please don't use this thread as an excuse to resurrect old arguments.

Lots of questions and challenges for the regions. At present, the Osprey are without a coach, the Scarlets are potentially going to lose theirs to the All Blacks, and the Blues and Dragons are in the process or rebuilding. Only one team is in the top tier of Europe, and they're taking a beating in it.

With the more general challenges the regions face including the Pro14 as a competition, the lack of funding to compete with Ireland and England/France, and the lack of succession and pathways for players and coaches from the semi-pro level, as well as dealing with Gatland leaving, there's lots up in the air for the domestic game in Wales, and whether the impending global restructuring will have Wales at the heart of it.

Worrying development in NZ: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/50740245

Brad Mooar apparently in line to join up with Foster with the All Blacks.

Hard to know how much truth there is in this. I would be more worried if it were Robertson who was coach given their connection.
