With all due respect, what your not getting is there is hardly enough money for four teams in Wales to be competitive let alone 12. We have a small population and a low average wage compared to England in particular. Teams like Pontypridd, Neath, Pontypool etc are struggling financially in the Welsh premiership (which is semi-Pro), there is no way they could’ve have competed in the Pro 14 or in Europe. The problem is, the WRU didn’t have the guts to just split the whole country into four quarters, which would’ve included similar populations... as Moffett had originally suggested. Instead the WRU and the clubs (particularly Cardiff and Llanelli) pushed the idea that we currently have but with the Celtic Warriors... it was a compromise that was never fit for purpose.
