As we gear for the World Cup in a few weeks time in France, Welsh rugby announced this week that they will be taking on the Barbarians in a test match at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. This is the same day that the region sides Cardiff will play Scarlets in the URC.
Absoutle disgraceful decision this, just what were they thinking, surely this game will be changed?

Very disappointed to see @WelshRugbyUnion arranging this fixture on the same day as @Cardiff_Rugby travel to @scarlets_rugby in the @URCOfficial
The 4 professional teams should not need to compete against its governing body.
Not very collaborative or "in this together"! https://t.co/p76yGNXrFk

Wales are set to play England again this weekend at Twickenham Stadium in London. It’s going to make for a cracking contest between both countries. But really Wales would want to do something about their region teams. This idea from the Welsh rugby Union certainly doesn’t help.
