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.

See, at least they do not pretend to be anything other than stand alone.

Where else can they play a game?

Sardis?

Yep, I'm sure they'll be opened with open arms now, you rascal Wink

Doesn't really make sense though does it a team called Cardiff playing a "home" game in Pontypridd

Agreed. Ponty couldn't exactly do it after their stance against this anyway.

Couldn't agree more. There again, just the word "Blues" could be bunged up on the Sardis scoreboard and we could all pretend together, hand in hand, in peace and harmony.

Wales Online have answered all the key questions about the Regional Premiership Select XVs.

Here is a short version of the article?

Where will they play? Either at regional HQ or around the region.
Who will coach them? Probably a prem coach, maybe.
What colour will they wear? It is likely their will either wear the regional shirt, or possibly a new one.

Usual cutting edge journalism we have come to expect

I am waiting for the next piece on who will win the first season of a 16 team Welsh Premiership which the Western Mail can exclusively say is a probably going to be a Welsh team that plays in the Premiership

Steffan,

Don't bet your house on it, they most likely get that wrong as well Wink. After all in one report I read this week with regards the B&I cup they had Ponty down as League and Cup winners.

I would expect Cardiff Blues to move games of some description (probably A team ones) to Merthyr, at some point. I'm sure Peter will scratch his brother's back and vice versa.

I am sure they will as well, I was just responding to CD message, and the fact that Cardiff do not even pretend to be anything other than a stand alone club, I am starting to admire them for it actually. Wink

Reckon it would come as a welcome relief to most, including non supporters and Kaaairdiff haters if they just dropped the bloos tag completely. I mean, what is the point of it? It's given Ponty supporters the "I will never be a bloo" chant, it's caused huge aggro amongst the Cardiff lot plus the confusion that they are not Cardiff, when in fact they are. The club could still fulfill their obligations without the add on, so why not just get rid.

Possibly although I don't recall ever seeing any

We should not hate Cardiff Blues. They might be a loathable bunch but to hate something is to care and we shouldn't care

There's a video out there, done by some Cardiff mischief makers, showing among other things what looks like Ponty temp staff wearing "I will never be a blue" t-shirts. It's great. You should watch it.

Pools have been announced

Scarlets Select, Bedford, Bristol, Ulster Ravens
Ospreys Select, Yorkshire Carnegie, Munster 'A', London Scottish
Blues Select, Nottingham, London Welsh,  Cornish Pirates
Dragons Select, Connacht Eagles, Doncaster Knights, Jersey

From a Scarlets view point, not bad pool at all.  Plenty to attract supporters etc.  After all Scarlets main team play Bedford in a friendly this season, Bristol are supposedly a Jeff level side, and on the whole Scarlets fans don't seem to like Ulster too much (and vice versa).

If the Dragons one had Yorkshire instead of Doncaster, I'd be delighted. Or I'd take another trip down to Penzance.

"Cornish Pirates boss Ian Davies says it is time Wales admitted the 'A' teams of their Pro12 sides into the British & Irish Cup.

The Pirates host Cross Keys on Sunday, with 10 of the Welsh club's side being members of Newport Gwent Dragons.

Pontypridd, Carmarthen Quins, Aberavon and Cross Keys are in the tournament.

"The sooner the WRU make the decision to announce it as Dragons' 'A' team, Blues 'A' team, Scarlets 'A' team and Ospreys 'A' team, the better," he said.

"Plymouth found this when they went to Carmarthen a fortnight ago, there were 13 guys who'd never played for Carmarthen.

"It's not Cross Keys we're playing," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"They've got guys like Jason Tovey, Rhys Jones who we know very well from his time down here and is now a star on the Welsh sevens circuit, Luc Jones at nine and these guys are serious players."

The four Irish provinces in the tournament already describe their teams as the 'A' sides are Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster, while Scottish Rugby decided to withdraw their clubs from the tournament in June over concerns over its structure.

But Davies thinks the addition of players from the main Welsh provincial clubs is a good thing for the tournament.

"The Irish provinces are strong. We've played against British Lions when we played Munster in Peter Stringer and I think it is good for the competition.

"We had the ridiculous situation two years ago where the whole of the Welsh Premiership was in the British & Irish Cup - and even the Welsh clubs admitted they didn't understand why, because they were nowhere near strong enough to compete with the sides in the RFU Championship.

"The Scottish clubs were slightly stronger last year when they realised they couldn't compete.

"When Ayr came to us they had seven Glasgow players, two of which are now in the Scotland squad."

The B&I Cup will still be going next season. Some of your players will still be playing in it.

I'm not trying to be clever, but you make it sound like they've scrapped it.
