Welsh Players Watch Swansea City

Well, some of the Welsh rugby clubs are not doing well as we speak.


They are going through a crisis. The players refuse to wear their boots. Some of the clubs are on the verge of folding. They simply have no clue how to run a team.

They recently celebrated their anniversary after an Ireland tour. But they had to drop out of the 3rd Division sighting player shortage prior to the season.
