The four Welsh regions have retracted statements made earlier this afternoon in a press release where they questioned the allocation of funds to the regions as published in the WRU's annual report.
The four Welsh regions retracted the earlier release which was issued without the authority of its Chief Executive, Stuart Gallacher.
In the press release the four regions made a number of serious allegations against the WRU and WRU Group Chief Executive Roger Lewis which they now accept are wholly unfounded and which should never have been published.
The regions and Mr Gallacher apologised unreservedly to the Welsh Rugby Union and Roger Lewis for any offence and distress caused.
