The organisation currently holds a 50 per cent stake in the club, together with Newport RFC. It will now assume full ownership of the club, together with the stadium, which is home to both rugby teams and Newport County FC. Following completion, a new company will be formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of the WRU, free from any historic debt. All current employees will be taken on. WRU Group chief executive Martyn Phillips said: “All parties recognise that from an NGD perspective significant improvement is required on and off the pitch and that it is now time to take a different approach. Dragons chief executive Stuart Davies added: “We began work just under two years ago to establish the Newport Gwent Dragons as an independent entity capable of attracting fresh investment. Separation from Newport RFC was an important step in achieving that, but the proposal also seeks to protect their interests and the continued playing of rugby at Rodney Parade. In April it was revealed that the Dragons had been put up for sale in a bid to secure fresh investment. Home News Wales.
Cardiff Blues Community Foundation join forces with WRU for Rookie Rugby
The reality is we continue to juggle a number of unknowns. Whilst we expect to replay our postponed Guinness Six Nations fixture with Scotland, the competition format and opposition for additional autumn games are yet to be agreed. We hope for news on these fixtures in the coming weeks, but in the meantime have initiated a process to provide refund, credit or donate options to all existing ticket holders for the Scotland game — more details of which can be found below.
What is certain is that we will not be playing any home games at Principality Stadium. We have yet to finalise a contract on the extension, as, this time, it is a little more complex and there are a number of circumstances that need to be covered. We hope to sign the contract shortly.
The Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), called by Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) member clubs last week, will be held at 11am at the Vale.

There is no doubt the pandemic has presented challenges, sacrifices, heartache and anxiety. We are under no illusions about the reality of the last three or four months. That said, without getting too philosophical, we can choose to view our future through a lens of hope or one of fear. So, whilst there are tough days ahead, and inevitable challenges as we transition to life with the virus supressed or defeated, I would like to talk about our hopes rather than fears.
We have a vision for how life can be for us in Welsh rugby if we believe that good things will happen. Rest assured everyone at the WRU will graft shoulder to shoulder with you to bring the game back stronger — we will leave nothing on the pitch.

Let’s just run through the rules of the Welsh Rugby Union’s under competition one more time to avoid confusion. This may or may not be the team that gains the most points. Teething problems It is easy to be churlish about the organisational abilities of the Welsh Rugby Union and I’ve never been one to resist easy temptation.
Gareth Davies WRU chairman. COVID – the prospect of returning to play. Clubs may have read World Rugby’s guidelines for the safe return.
The best organisations play to the strengths of the individuals contained therein. For example, at the Welsh Rugby Union our Board is ultimately responsible for the governance of our game, but we largely rely on our executive staff and our CEO to manage and implement strategy, which we agree on collectively. This is a modern and professional approach and it is one that is reflected at a community level with clubs around Wales doing what they do best enabled and supported by the Union.
Just as no-one would pick fifteen fly-halves to make up a rugby team, we all have a job to do and the trick is to match the right individuals to specific roles. Firstly, that the contest for the next chairman and vice-chairman of World Rugby, won by Bill Beaumont and Bernard Laporte respectively this week, was no sliding doors moment for the game. There was no fork in the road to take us this way or that, no black and white choice between Bill and his competitor, Agustin Pichot, just two capable and accomplished candidates with similar ambition and the enthusiasm to safeguard the future of rugby and, importantly, an established team of professionals around them.
Both candidates talked in earnest about a governance review for the game in their manifestos and this is where progress will be made. This is where the team around the chairman can be empowered and utilised in the collective interests of the game. A degree of modernisation has already been achieved and a lot of good work has been done in this area, but there is more to come and it is this issue that will define rugby in the years ahead. Secondly, or perhaps the same point in different terms, the chairman is a figurehead but good governance is a team effort.
As has already been said, we have a golden opportunity ahead of us — presented by the current crisis — to set a new global calendar, which mitigates against clashes between the international game and the professional club season. We can cut the year into blocks and find a fixture list that is right for all. The guidelines are intended to be read alongside laws and policies implemented by local public health and government authorities in relation to COVID, including public gathering restrictions, social distancing and restrictions, and will be utilised by the WRU to help define policy at the appropriate time.
The detailed document outlines a phased approach to returning to training and playing.

The Welsh Rugby Union WRU is on the lookout for a new home after confirming that Principality Stadium will be off limits for the remainder of the year.

Welsh rugby’s descent in to turmoil is set to continue with court dates having been set for a showdown between the Welsh Rugby Union and Regional Rugby Wales RRW , the umbrella organisation representing the four Welsh regions. The two parties are at loggerheads over Wales’ autumn international against the All Blacks on November 7, which falls outside of the IRB’s designated Test window.
The Blues, Dragons, Ospreys and Scarlets were not contacted by the WRU before organising the fixture, and court dates on September 9, 10 and 11 are set to decide whether or not the regions will be forced to release their players for the game. RRW have obtained a High Court agreement that the game cannot take place without the matter being determined in court.
The court date has been set, and we look forward to achieving in court what we have been unable to achieve with the WRU for almost two years – certainty.
