It would be a tragedy for Welsh rugby if the Scarlets were to go out of business because of Carwyn Jones' decision to 'call in' the club's planning application for alternative use of Stradey. I also read they are asking David Pickering for a loan to see them through the 12 months or so that it will take to decide things. This would be a tough call for new supremo, Roger Lewis. Why don't they just ask Wales' new 'sporting banker', John Marek for a loan. He could have a bit left over after his loan of £500,000 to Wrexham football Club.
