The Welsh Rugby Union is warning clubs across Wales to beware of a financial scam aimed at getting personal details and bank account information from individuals.
The WRU has been alerted by Nantymoel RFC which received a letter which falsely claimed the named recipient had won an official Rugby World Cup 2011 themed sweepstake with a £1.7million prize.
It is a scam which the IRB originally sounded a warning about last year, but the letter to Nantymoel shows attempts are still being made to dupe rugby club members.
The IRB has alerted all unions of the scam and pointed out it does not operate and has never operated any form of sweepstake.
Nantymoel alerted the WRU through their Board member Aurwel Morgan who is now sounding a warning to all other clubs.
He said: "I am extremely grateful to Nantymoel for bringing this clear scam to our attention. It is vitally important that all our clubs and club members remain vigilant and do not fall into the trap of believing this appeal.
"The offer was made in a formal letter and it certainly appears to give the impression of being a valid document.
"The truth is it is a cynical attempt to procure money and the fact that Nantymoel received this letter recently means this scam is still active."
The winners of a filmmaking competition organised by the education charity Into Film and the WRU enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the Millennium Stadium - and a chance to be photographed with the WRU's fire-breathing, rugby loving mascot, Scorch The Dragon, and Welsh international, Jake Ball.
The Wales Under 20 camp are in a quietly confident mood as they face Ireland in the U20 Championship, with Coaching Co-Ordinator Allan Lewis and full back Dafydd Howells targeting a top five finish in the tournament.
Wales U20 may start as favourites against Japan this evening in the U20 Championship, but Team Manager Mark Taylor is warning against complacency. He is also hoping a good win will boost morale and 'kickstart' performances.
Coach Richard Hodges is hoping Wales U20 can put a disappointing campaign behind them when they tackle Japan tomorrow as they look to finish the U20 Championship strongly to secure a good seeding for next year's tournament.
