Statement issued on behalf of Regional Rugby Wales
Earlier today (Wednesday) Regional Rugby Wales issued a press release relating to the Welsh Rugby Union and its Group Chief Executive Officer Roger Lewis regarding the allocation of funds to the 4 Welsh Regions as published in the WRU's Annual Report.
Regional Rugby Wales retracts the earlier release which was issued without the authority of its Chief Executive, Stuart Gallacher.
In the press release Regional Rugby Wales made a number of serious allegations against the WRU and Mr Lewis which it now accepts are wholly unfounded and which should never have been published.
Regional Rugby Wales and Mr Gallacher apologise unreservedly to the Welsh Rugby Union and Roger Lewis for any offence and distress caused.
