Video: Mark Dodson on Heineken Cup negotiations
English and French clubs have signalled their intention to break away from the current Heineken Cup set-up and create their own tournament because of what they feel is an unfair bias towards teams from the other nations involved – Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
The English and French clubs are expected to snub talks planned for later this month by European Rugby Cup, the organisation which runs the Heineken Cup, whilst teams from the other countries have rejected calls to join the rival “Rugby Champions Cup” proposal.
Scottish Rugby Union chief executive Mark Dodson insists he is confident of a resolution.
