BY Philip Bendon  ·  Saturday Nov 19, 2022

Former Welsh and Lions captain Sam Warburton has made some incredible points following Wales’s shocking home defeat to Georgia.

In a game that they would expect to win comfortably, Wales were kept scoreless in the second half as Georgia rallied from 12 – 3 own to pick up a historic 13 – 12 victory.

Speaking as a pundit for Amazon post-match Warburton said “From a Welsh perspective it is unacceptable.”

Whilst the Welsh legend admitted that you could nit-pick where things went wrong on the pitch he said the issues went far deeper than the playing squad.

“The problems go far deeper than that (the playing issues).”

“It goes back, and it was in the press a couple of weeks ago. The governance and the WRU, there are people there who I am sure have the best intentions and are brilliant and supportive for the community game.”

“But they shouldn’t have a place in deciding what happens to a company who is a £100 million turnover company, who are trying to win a Rugby World Cup.”

“It’s an old structure that has been in place for a long time and doesn’t suit modern Rugby whatsoever and that has to change.”

“Like they say all good organisations start at the top, we can look at the pitch, but we need to look way beyond that. The problems run way deeper and the cracks have been there for a long time and they are now finally coming to fruition and that’s the harsh truth about it.”
