With the greatest of respect Cast-iron I would suggest that the stated aim has been to develop players from South Wales for most of the last 8 years - ie since the Super League fallout - and the club(s) seem no closer to achieving that.

Regarding budget, surely the point is to be competitive, and in this I count not getting thumped each week as opposed to challenging for promotion. Yes the Crusaders showed what happens when you spend beyond your means but they at least "dared to dream" and that seems to be in short supply at the moment.

I think it is Rogero that emphasises the importance of the W and he is right. If you are a kid in West Wales this winter who do you want to emulate, the Semi-finalists in the (RU) Champions League or the team that just got thumped in front of 200 fans?

Roots are good but I suspect patience is not endless from the fans - or the RL if they start to streamline the divisions as I predicted.
