Below is the text from a letter to all clubs from Gareth Davies, chairman of the WRU, stressing the importance of the work done off the field.
In the light of Gareth’s email and our own circumstances please consider the following:-
As we approach the start of the 2016/17 season as reigning CHAMPIONS we know we are going to have to improve everything we do. A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes from a core of hard working volunteers and now is a good time to recognise this effort. Volunteers allow our famous club to fight above its weight but we can’t and won’t become complacent. If you want to see continuous improvement please contact us to see how you can help.
To those who’ve helped us over the past months and years, YOUR club thanks you!
Now…..let’s get behind the Champions, our very own STEELMEN and retain that title!
Ian, Jon and Alan.

This is the letter from Gareth Davies.
On eve of the opening weekend of the new season I would like to take the opportunity to both thank each and every one of the constituent clubs and associations of the Welsh Rugby Union for your continued commitment to our national game and send our best wishes to all those involved this weekend and throughout the season both on and off the pitch
From the invaluable planning and preparation which takes place behind the scenes at clubs around the country during the off season to the players about to take their first competitive steps of the new season upon it, you are the lifeblood of the game and we looking forward to sharing an exciting season of rugby ahead in 2016/2017.
Remember whatever the role in rugby, the lifelong club stalwart, a new volunteer or a young player just starting out we are all united by our passion for the game and that includes the dedicated staff here at the WRU.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time throughout the season with your relevant WRU representative if there is anything more you feel we can do to help with our common cause of safeguarding the future of our national game .
