    Is it about getting a good crowd or is it about engaging with the grass roots of the region. Dont see what Welsh regions have to lose given the current numbers going to Pro 12 games.

    That's a very good point. They may have a smaller crowd for that game, but in the long run it'll expand their fanbase, hopefully resulting in more regulars going to see games. So a short term hit for long term gain.

    Makes sense in theory, but unfortunately the regions are probably thinking they need as much money as they can get, and now! The only one I can see working is the Scarlets moving a few games for north Wales. The U20 crowds showed that the punters are there.
