Six Nations TV deal is a victory for the fans

Following the news today that the annual Six Nations Rugby Union Tournament will remain available on free to air TV, Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds, who's party campaigned against a possible move to pay per view, has described the news as a victory for the fans.

Jane Dodds MS said:

"This is a victory first and foremost for the fans. For too long big businesses have tried to mussel in and cash in on our national game.

"Everyone fan who wrote in, signed a petition or lobbied their parliamentarians can hold their heads high this weekend.

“The Six Nations and their predecessors have been a staple of Welsh life for generations and I hope fans old and new will continue to watch the games for years to come."
