Pontypool RFC: Club nearly folded after WRU legal challenge
One of Wales' most famous rugby clubs, Pontypool, was a week away from folding earlier this year, it has emerged.
The club, immortalised in the Max Boyce song Pontypool Front Row, faced crippling legal bills after a failed court case with the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU).
But now the bills have been paid thanks to a £100,000 donation from a life long fan.
Pontypool went to court to fight WRU plans to reorganise the Welsh Premiership.
