RFU Chair Bill Beaumont Says Rugby Clubs Could Be In Breach Of Contract
Published September 21, 2012
MAN IN THE MIDDLE: In London, Gavin Mairs reported that Beaumont has "emerged as a potential mediator in the row between the English clubs and their RaboDirect Pro 12 counterparts over the future of the Heineken Cup." Beaumont is set to meet with owners of the 12 Premiership clubs next Wednesday and said he is "prepared to use his influence to help broker a deal ahead of the European Rugby Cup stakeholders’ next meeting" in Rome on Oct 8. Beaumont said, "I would like to think with the contacts that I have got and the relationships I have built up amongst our neighbours, I will try and use my best endeavours. That is what the RFU wants. We are keen to resolve this situation. We don’t want to be at loggerheads with our neighbours all the time or the clubs. Why would we?" (TELEGRAPH, 9/20).
