Neath fans hope "heartbreaking" end can spark fresh start

One of the most famous rugby union clubs in the world is facing a future as bleak as their all black kit.

Formed in 1881, Neath RFC were the first winners of the Welsh Cup and have faced the likes of New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

Yet following years of decline, it is facing a winding-up petition in the courts that could see the doors of the Gnoll closed for good.
