This proposal will strangle the sport
I AM writing this letter in the hope that Irish rugby does not face the dire setback that Eamon Ryan's proposal represents.
I am from a village in Co Sligo and rugby has grown enormously in Connacht in recent years. The heartbreaking defeat in the Amlin Challenge Cup semi-final was evidence enough of how far we have come.
If these European matches and Six Nations games are made 'free-to-air', all the Irish provinces will suffer.
