Regions could offload Wales stars

Wales' four regions could offload players, including internationals in extreme circumstances, if no solution is found to their dispute with the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU).

The last participation agreement between the WRU and Regional Rugby Wales (RRW) ended on 30 June, leaving the regions believing they face a combined £6.7m shortfall next season.

Ospreys, Cardiff Blues, Newport Gwent Dragons and Scarlets have offered the Welsh Rugby Union the chance to take them over and want a deal to end their impasse by 18 July.

Wales Today presenter Claire Summers discusses the latest development in the Welsh rugby row with BBC Wales sports news correspondent Gareth Lewis.
