So, what’s new and happened since we last blogged (March 2018)? Well, it’s been a busy 12 months really. […]

Two of Wales’ biggest rugby union teams could merge under radical proposals being discussed. Ospreys and Scarlets could be combined in what has been mooted as the biggest domestic shake-up to Welsh rugby since regional teams were established 16 years ago. The merger is reportedly more likely to happen than not and could take place in time for next season. Alun Wyn Jones has played 233 times for Ospreys The proposals are the focal point of talks held by Wales’ Professional Game Board, which is a group comprising of representatives of the Welsh Rugby Union, Scarlets, Ospreys, Dragons and Cardiff Blues. Establishing a new professional team in the north of the country is also reportedly high on the agenda. The favoured plan is understood to retain four regional teams but would consist of north Wales, an Ospreys-Scarlets merger, Blues and Dragons. Ospreys chairman Mike James has quit over the proposals and has said: “Project Reset has become Project Inept”. Leigh Halfpenny currently plays for Scarlets The Scarlets currently play at Parc-y-Scarlets in Llanelli, while the Ospreys use Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium for their home games. Any merger would need to establish a home ground, in addition to issues such as the new team’s name and kit. Around half of Wales’ match-day 23 for the Scotland clash is likely to feature Ospreys and Scarlets players. STATEMENT Ospreys Chairman resigns over WRU's "catastrophic mismanagement" of Project Reset.https://t.co/870ySaXLQF — Ospreys (@ospreys) March 5, 2019 And if a merger goes ahead, then players like Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones, Jonathan Davies, George North, Ken Owens and Leigh Halfpenny will be part of the same regional squad. The WRU has not commented on Tuesday’s planned discussions. Senior Wales players did meet with the governing body last week, though, to discuss a number of issues on the future of regional rugby. Speaking last week, Wales assistant coach Rob Howley said: “It’s uncertain times, which is disappointing. “There is a lot of frustration, not only for the best players in Wales, but for their mates in the regions. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST SPORT NEWS” posts_category=”9692″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] “There is an uncertainty about Project Reset, and they would like to know where they are going to be playing next year or in two years’ time.” So-called Project Reset is being played out against a back-drop of Wales chasing this season’s Six Nations title and a possible Grand Slam. They face Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday, followed by Ireland in Cardiff seven days later. Victories in both games would secure a first Six Nations clean sweep since 2012.

JOHANN VAN GRAAN was gutted after his Reds were unable to convert a host of chances at Parc y Scarlets. Munster had enough opportunities to copperfasten their lead at the top of Conference A but left without scoring a try. Munster slumped to a defeat away to Scarlets Head coach Van Graan said: “We did well to create a lot of chances but were not able to convert them and that was disappointing. “We need to regroup now after this break and start from zero again in a couple of weeks.” Scarlets, who have only lost one league game at this venue since September 2016, made the most of the few chances they created. The away side dominated the opening half but still trailed 7-6 at the break. The visitors failed to convert a number of chances Over 50 per cent of the opening half was played inside Scarlets’ 22 but the home rearguard held firm and Munster had to be content with two penalties from Bill Johnston. He got them off the mark after five minutes with a kick in front of the posts but the Welsh side hit the front after 11 minutes. They created an overlap with a superb one-handed offload from Johnny McNicholl which put the other winger Ioan Nicholas over in the left corner, with Leigh Halfpenny landing the conversion. But after that it was all Munster and by the break they had made 197 metres to Scarlets’ 84, with 114 carries to just 25 for the hosts. Rhys Marshall and Arno Botha got within inches for Munster after multiple phases but could not get across. However, they reduced the margin just before the break when Johnston made no mistake with a penalty from 45 metres after Scarlets were pinged for offside. Munster continued to have the upper hand after the restart but fell further behind when Halfpenny landed a penalty after 48 minutes to extend their lead to 10-6. The visitors hit back and continued to build the phases but yet again could not find a way through the home defence. Van Graan emptied the bench in the final quarter in a bid to salvage the game and they pounded the home line. Johnston and Botha went ever so close after a sustained bout of ­pressure 13 minutes from time. Rory Scannell — who at 25 is the youngest Munster player to chalk up 100 appearances for the province — was unable to crown the milestone with a try as they battled away to the bitter end. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN SPORT” posts_category=”18″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Munster had one final chance but while they built a promising position, the chance was lost when replacement hooker Kevin O’Byrne knocked on in the tackle. Scarlets cleared their lines to secure the win. SCORERS — Scarlets: try, I Nicholas; con, L Halfpenny; pen, Halfpenny. Munster: pens, B Johnston 2.
