HEINEKEN CUP: Meanwhile, the IRISH EXAMINER's Barry Coughlan reported the Irish Rugby Football Union's annual council was told that "the uncertain future of the Heineken Cup is a significant risk to the IRFU's finacial health." English and French clubs have placed the competition under threat by "signalling their intent to withdraw" at the end of the '13-14 season. The clubs are "unhappy with the current structure and the qualifying process." European Rugby Cup income improved by €1.8M ($2.3M) for the union last year, contributing to a €7.8M ($9.5M) surplus (IRISH EXAMINER, 7/21).
