'It's about the rich getting richer' - Shane Horgan on European rugby

The former Leinster winger feels that the entire club rugby mess is related to money.

LAST WEEK BROUGHT several new twists to the ongoing saga of European club rugby’s future, with the Celtic nations and Italy’s willingness to concede to the demands of the LNR and Premiership Rugby falling on unwilling ears.

Shane Horgan and Alan Quinlan discussed the latest developments on RTÉ Rugby, with the former Leinster and Ireland winger claiming that the entire issue is built on the “rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.” Both pundits were adamant that the national unions need to make their power felt in ensuring that the greater good of European rugby is not forgotten about.
