Sir Stan's vision for Merthyr RFC

Businessman Sir Stanley Thomas outlines his plans for hometown club Merthyr RFC as they seek to rise to the top level of Welsh club rugby.

The Ironmen have recruited former Wales back-rower Andy Powell, among others, ahead of the 2015-16 Championship campaign.

They hope to reach the Welsh Premiership with Thomas hoping they can boost the Cardiff Blues region overall.
