BBC Sport - Andy Irvine on the SRU motion to seek outside investment for pro clubs

Irvine backs move for pro clubs investment

Former Scottish Rugby Union president Andy Irvine says there is an "element of risk" for any potential investor looking to plough money into enhancing the professional game in Scotland.

A vote will take place at Murrayfield on Friday to decide if external investment in the two Scottish Professional teams will be allowed. Currently both Glasgow and Edinburgh teams are funded solely by the Scottish Rugby Union.
