The FIR have two franchises - so even though Aironi are no more the Federation still have a Pro 12 team and HC place even though none exists yet.

Viadana applied for the Aironi franchise but this has been rejected adding to the apeculation a Rome based team will get the second franchise.

Back to the LW realities - and while I have always liked the thought of LW in the Welsh/Celtic structure money will be an issue, as indeed would transitional arrangements as while non English qualified players are an issue for the RFU, so non Welsh qualified players are an issue for the WRU.
