European Rugby Cup: Heineken Cup replacement gets go-ahead

The new European Rugby Champions Cup to replace the Heineken Cup has been given the go-ahead to start next season.

The heads of agreement - the principles behind the deal - were signed by the nine parties involved on Thursday, bringing an end to a two-year saga.

The signatories are the unions from the Six Nations countries, plus the club bodies for England, France and Wales.

BBC Wales sports news correspondent Gareth Lewis spoke to Claire Summers in the Wales Today studio about the development.
