Using the opportunity provided by the SWALEC Cup, three North Wales sides played against Welsh Premiership sides this weekend.
The results, 55-17 for Cardiff against Bethesda, 104-4 for Swansea against Bala and 78-3 for Ebbw Vale against Llandudno serve to underline the difference between the Welsh Premiership and club rugby in North Wales.
Gogledd Cymru is bridging this gap but these results lay down a benchmark for the development needed to compete at Premiership level. The days when a scratch team of North Wales' best could compete against Romania and Tonga are a distant memory. A 2010 Premiership place needs the commitment and participation of all of the best players in North Wales NOW.
Performance is key to Gogledd Cymru achieving a Welsh Premiership place. Join the cause - call 01517947986 or email email@example.com
