Dear Group

    Llanelli Rugby Club are in serious financial trouble. Some in the town
say " it could be the end of the club ". Coming from Llanelli I sure that
if that were to happen the town would follow.  I'd like to build up a list
of global or local  contacts , in a bid to some how help the club I love so
much. If anyone has any ideas for this campaign or would just like to send
their support . Please contact me . I will try to pass them on to the club
Sec.

  I'm  also starting a  www page where the messages I receive will be
displayed. I'll also publish any new news on the club.

   I Thank You For Your Time

    S J Mason

I can understand you wanting to help the club out.  I'm a Pontypool
supporter, but even I don't want to see a club like Llanelli go down the
tubes.  However, the hard fact is that they have brought it on
themselves with poor financial management.

Weren't Llanelli one of the clubs who got a huge "loan" from the WRU
recently to help them out of debt, while the financially solvent clubs
who could also do with a bit of extra cash got nothing?  What happened
to that money, or did it go to pay some player's inflated salary?
