Statement – 27/01/23

The Premiership Division Clubs that participate in the Indigo Group Premiership of the WRU are astonished and appalled by the allegations of sexism, racism and misogyny levelled at the Welsh Rugby Union by a BBC Wales Investigation broadcast on the 23rd January 2023.

The Premier Division Clubs concur with the stated aims of the WRU which include, “to increase participation opportunities by working with partners to deliver a diverse and inclusive rugby menu across all communities in Wales” and “to create, implement and develop a sustainable alternative rugby programme with inclusivity at its heart – a jersey for all”. 

Consequently, the Premier Division Clubs expect swift and decisive action to be taken, in addressing these extremely serious and damaging allegations, that will eradicate this appalling behaviour and provide a future that is accessible and comfortable, for all within Welsh rugby.
