The Principality Premiership kicks off tomorrow and we begin the new season with an extended podcast where WRU TV's Graeme Gillespie chats to defending champions Pontypridd, newcomers Ebbw Vale, Carmarthen Quins and members of the press.
We celebrate 10 years of the Principality Premiership in this week's Principality Welsh Rugby Union Podcast. We speak to the building society's group chief executive Graeme Yourston, plus Wales skills coach Neil Jenkins back at the Sardis Road launch. We hear from Geraint Lewis of Pontypridd, Lee Beach of Neath and Duane Goodfield of Ebbw Vale. WRU group chief executive Roger Lewis welcomes a new deal with Mercedes Benz, along with Wales centre Scott Williams.
There have been a number of key changes to some of the familiar furniture at Sardis Road over the summer and the main responsibility for maintaining the team's winning culture and fortunes has been handed over to two giants of the club's past.
The 10th Principality Premiership is all set for a big kick off on Saturday, with all involved thoroughly enthused at the prospect of another competitive and entertaining season in the semi-professional game.
The start of the new season on the Principality Welsh Rugby Union Podcast. We hear from Wales prop Adam Jones about his move to Cardiff Blues, as well as outside half Rhys Patchell on his return from injury. Ospreys No 8 Dan Baker is looking to build on last season, while at the Ospreys Challenge we speak to coach Steve Tandy and returning Neath director of rugby Rowland Phillips.
