It looks like the superclubs have now hijacked the B&I Cup for themselves now that the LV is over.

Richard Holland is about as slimy as you get. Look at the email he sent. What a tool.

That's what we're all saying..... Ponty seem to believe they're in jeopardy, they'll still get Blues players just not as often. And they will only have the Premiership and Swalec cup to compete in.

But there are people on here saying that Pontypridd will not be getting their allocation of Blues players, and it is not true.

For me if the valleys are providing most of the players for Cardiff Blues, then if they need to play then they need to go to the closest high profile club to where they come from, which is Pontypridd, so no argument there why Ponty get so many Blues academy/squad players.

They're basing it on how future relation between Blues and Ponty works out. If it gets a whole lot worse, which is highly plausible, then perhaps Blues will seek to have their players get game time elsewhere. We'll have to wait and see. I reckon Pontypridd will back down.

If Merthyr ever get promoted then perhaps we will get the players. Yahoo

Players are being nurtured in the Welsh prem, Pontypridd along with other teams are providing plenty of players for the Blues and the Blues academy, and they do need game time, if these kids need to play,then they should play in the clubs closest to where they live in a club at the highest level. So because the valleys provide the bulk of the players at Cardiff Blues, it makes the most sense to play them at a valleys club, and the closest high profile club for anyone from Merthyr, Rhondda, Aberdare e.c.t is Pontypridd, perhaps that is why the Blues put so much players there.


I agree. My suggestion would be this:

Regions still send players out for game time with the Welsh Prem clubs, and welsh perm clubs still develop players that may one day step up to regional level. But the best of the Welsh Prem players are selected for their regional A team to compete in the B&I cup. E.g. In the Dragons region the stand out players, or the ones identified as regional possibilities, from Ebbw Vale, cross keys, Newport and Bedwas are selected to play for Dragons A in the B&I cup. It's a step up in competition but still below regional level. The perfect stepping stone. The premier clubs still get those players most of the season, as does the pro regional side if need be, but the players also get to taste cross border rugby. Maybe the A side could be coached by a hotshot Welsh Prem coaching team from that region, thus developing them for bigger things too.

The down side is that it is a bit of a Baa Baas situation with little game time together so results may not be great. But I can't see there being enough A games to make a full time A team worthwhile.

Wow, if you can take offence by that after "moving over from Ireland", you've obviously not read anything from your Ponty team. They even go as far as to print unbalanced guff in their programme.

.

The word is, that the Wern, where Merthyr RFC play their rugby, is going to have the same surface as the Cardiff Arms park ground, and the covered stand is going to be upgraded and they are going to have more hospitality suites and the what not, also extra parking to avoid every body being blocked in their houses when people park around Ynysfach on match day, there is also talk of a further stand being built as well. The only thing I can see being set in stone with all that though is the playing surface, Merthyr Town FC are getting the same from investors as well, Penydarren park has already had the artificial surface layed, they have had the new car park, and they are going to upgrade all the facilities there as well. There is a lot of regeneration going on at Merthyr at the moment, retail parks, new businesses, millions of pounds being spent on the town center, this town has been neglected for far too long.

Fantastic to see some investment in Merthyr. Those pitches don't come cheap. Is there some European development money being thrown around on the RFC pitch or is it all financed within the club? The parking as you said is a nightmare and they're going to need a lot more spaces. Is this the end to the breeze block terrace by the road?

I really do not know where the money is coming from, but the whole town center is having a face lift,there must be tens of millions being spent, the old college has been knocked down, and a new state of the art one built, all new one way systems put in place with nice plazas everywhere, the old police station has been knocked down and there is a new fandangled one been built, there is a brand new leisure center surrounded by restaurants and a multiplex cinema.A new fancy bridge built over the river Taff to compliment the new one way system. Also there is a brand new multi-story car park been built in the town center.

Penydarren Park is currently undergoing a massive face lift, as I have said, the pitch has already been re-layed, there is a new big car park there, they are pulling down the old stands and offices and building new stands and corporate facilities and it looks as though the same thing is being done for the rugby club as well.

When was the last time you were up in Merthyr coleman ?

Long time ago now for me, and it must have been Pennydarren park we played on, it was against Merthyr College I believe. Good to hear Merthyr is getting some investment (like Newport is). I hope it does lose its image. Newport was once an attractive looking city, now in the middle of all the Victorian era buildings in some ugly brown sky scraper. Not to mention the knocking down of the Lyceum Tavern, that was opposite queens hotel which is still there. Oh and in recent times there's the destroying of the Chartists uprising mosaic. Our town has always been run by numpties.

The thing is Saint, although Merthyr town center is now looking very modern and plush with marble paving stones everywhere and over engineered bridges over the Taff and nice plazas the one way system has totally frigged things up for my liking, Merthyr is quite a large town and the town center is quit big, and now we seem to have the biggest roundabout in Wales because the one way system takes you all the way around the edge of the town center, you need to get your exit right to get where you need to be. Laugh

I was in Newport a few months ago, to watch Dragons, it has a nice town center, I would put it on a par with Merthyr for it's size, it's nice to know that Newport is getting a face lift as well, far too long have Wales been neglected when you compare it's towns and cities to others around the UK.

I have no sympathy for ponty. Absolutely none. Twenty Cardiff contracted full time players have been allocated to them this year which has gone some way to seeing them win the league again. The whole system is an absolute mess. wrote:

The valleys supply Cardiff Blues with the bulk of their players, 14 of the 1st squad have come from Ponty. Without the valleys Cardiff Blues would not even have a decent academy.

Finally had a chance to look at that forum and the whole thing make me chuckle

Cardiff fans make me laugh how they constantly harp on about tradition and that then they accuse Ponty of being 'Johnny come lately' yet and go on to say that people need to get in the 21st century

So what if Ponty didn't become a major force until the late 80s and early 90s...they have just won a fourth league title. When was the last time the mighty Cardiff RFC ('The Drags' or whatever it is they call them) won anything? The Opsreys were formed in 2003 making them very much 'Johnny come lately' yet the have won 4 league titles since "regionalism" came in and Cardiff Blues have won how many?

As someone else said though this attitude never gets highlighted as it doesn't suit people like Risca's agenda on here and I think given the fact he had ignored your comment LD all credibility has gone out of the window and it's just an anti-Ponty agenda. Nothing more and nothing less but any 'I just want the best for Welsh rugby' has to be dismissed now from him and other posters on here

I'm not allowed to comment on what Dowlais says, sorry Steff. He gets all upset, bless him. If you want to get all precious about it, I'll have a read but to be honest I'm bored of this whole thing popping up everywhere and your tinpot club chirping on so am trying to avoid it all.

Why would I have an anti Ponty agenda? That's just typical delusions of grandeur from a Ponty fan. You're nothing more than a semi pro team, of no relevance to me.

I doubt it will happen even though it is a good idea. Plus it's a bit weird a team called Cardiff Blues 'A' playing in Merthyr Smile

I assume all 'A' games will be played at the usual grounds the senior teams do (sponsors and all that)

Also, how many of the Kaaaaaaairdiff lot would travel up to watch it. Civilisation stopping anywhere past Whitchurch and all that 'you knows waz I main loyk braaa'

I think that he is trying to point out, that it is a two way street and although some Ponty fans do not cover themselves in glory, the Cardiff fans are no saints either, but that would not suit your agenda on here would it ?

We know, just look at Dave. But like I've said, in the link Jimmy the supposed neutral posted, nothing stood out.

I have just read some of the comments on that forum, how arrogant some of them are, they actually lay claim to ALL players at Blues and totally dismiss any involvement of any  other clubs input. The following comment makes me laugh:-



These people do realise where their players are coming from don't they ?

The valleys supply Cardiff Blues with the bulk of their players, 14 of the 1st squad have come from Ponty. Without the valleys Cardiff Blues would not even have a decent academy.
Finally had a chance to look at that forum and the whole thing make me chuckle

Cardiff fans make me laugh how they constantly harp on about tradition and that then they accuse Ponty of being 'Johnny come lately' yet and go on to say that people need to get in the 21st century

So what if Ponty didn't become a major force until the late 80s and early 90s...they have just won a fourth league title. When was the last time the mighty Cardiff RFC ('The Drags' or whatever it is they call them) won anything? The Opsreys were formed in 2003 making them very much 'Johnny come lately' yet the have won 4 league titles since "regionalism" came in and Cardiff Blues have won how many?

As someone else said though this attitude never gets highlighted as it doesn't suit people like Risca's agenda on here and I think given the fact he had ignored your comment LD all credibility has gone out of the window and it's just an anti-Ponty agenda. Nothing more and nothing less but any 'I just want the best for Welsh rugby' has to be dismissed now from him and other posters on here

Much like you with the "super clubs" then brains.

Just like to remind you "you'll have to be a Blue". Somebody has to remind Ponty and their 10,000,000 fans they're small fry.

I doubt it will happen even though it is a good idea. Plus it's a bit weird a team called Cardiff Blues 'A' playing in Merthyr Smile

I assume all 'A' games will be played at the usual grounds the senior teams do (sponsors and all that)

Also, how many of the Kaaaaaaairdiff lot would travel up to watch it. Civilisation stopping anywhere past Whitchurch and all that 'you knows waz I main loyk braaa'

Stop digging if I were you Steff. Not doing yourself any favours.

He's typical of Pontypridd supporters mind. No logic behind their discussions, but my word they're constant. Ole.

Much like you writing 3 unresponded messages one of them even responding to and quoting something YOU had said

Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

That being said I just looked at the time you posted (3 times) and I think old Risca had been out with his school mates before helping himself to daddies cider when he wrote this rather aggressive attack warning

I awaite another 3 messages repeating the same thing from you Risca. Providing you have sobered up now and mummy has told you about the dangers of too much alcohol thumbsup

It ain't that funny... And while some comments from the Arms Park forum may be a little rude, I think a lot of what they have said is right. I don't see why some of you would complain about it though, given the (mostly uncalled for) vitriol Pontypridd aim at Welsh rugby.

A favourite son of Pontypridd, former Wales outside half Ceri Sweeney, is returning to the club as a member of next season's playing squad

A good signing but I still think we should play Jarrod Evans at 10 and Sweeney as backup flyhalf/centre

He will be back in the squad again. Don't think you lot down at the Arms Park have much need for him at the moment

True but he played most of last season for Ponty. The boy is very talented though and it's nice to see our youth products progressing well even if it is for our bitter rivals Kaaaairdiff Smile

Be nice then coz it'll be a Cardiff Blues decision to release him to play for Ponty. After recent events your allocation might very well be much diminished next season.

Doubt it as it's part of the Premiership contract that we have to play Cardiff "region" players to receive funding. Cardiff could try place a few for the Cardiff 'B' team (drags or whatever it is you call them) as punishment though but Jarrod being a Maesycoed boy will no doubt want to play for his hometown team

Eh? But Ponty will get what they're given and it will be a Cardiff Blues decision in any case.
And i'm 100% sure Jarrod will play where his employer says so.
It's Rags btw, but you know that. No worries. The oldest swingers in Ponty town should turnover the Cardiff kids in the WP.

Jarrod will be playing at Ponty if he is not on the Cardiff first team. And yes I think Ponty will beat 'The Rags' 3 times next season (4 if we meet in the cup)
