ABSTRACT
MONEY is the root of all evil in Welsh rugby right now and the WRU have launched a stinging attack on the regions — accusing the Scarlets of actively seeking to offload star George North without first informing the player. With a financial drain on Welsh rugby, the WRU are incensed by Scarlets' apparent move to earn a transfer fee for North (to Northampton) without the union's knowledge. They called on the regions to 'abandon the practice of selling Welsh-qualified senior players for profit before their contracts are concluded', and to inform each other and the WRU when they are seeking to sell or release any Wales players.
