Bridgend favour Andrew plan
January 5, 2000
The unstinting support for a British Superleague in Wales has been undermined by Bridgend managing director Leighton Samuel.
"Many of the clubs pushing for a British League have not considered the criteria needed to fulfil such a commitment," said Samuel.
