Pontypridd has issued the following statement regarding its expulsion from the forthcoming Premiership Play-Off semi-final round:
"At a meeting of the WRU Regulatory Committee held on Thursday 6th May, attended by Chief Executive Stephen Reardon and Team Manager Richard Langmead, the club was found guilty of breaching WRU regulations by fielding an ineligible player in the Play-Off match against Llandovery.
"As a consequence, the club has been expelled from the Play-Off competition and will be replaced by Llandovery.
"Pontypridd RFC would like to make it clear that this was a genuine error and not a deliberate deception. The Regulatory Committee of the WRU accepted this but were duty bound to act as the club was in breach of the competition rules".
The WRU has teamed up with Crawshay's to tour Georgia in June. The side, which will be called the Crawshays WRU President's XV, will play Emerging Georgia twice, in a tour which supports the Welsh Government's efforts to grow relations between the two countries.
Wales Sevens are looking to re-group after a disappointing tournament last time out in South Africa. The next double leg in New Zealand and Las Vegas offers Gareth Williams a chance to redeem themselves.
Wales Women's head coach Rhys Edwards was at Llandovery to see the conclusion of an entertaining Women's Regional championship where any one of three teams were in contention for title glory on the last day of action.
