On this week's sports show.....how are our local clubs doing in the present climate? We spoke to General Manager of Llanelli Town Wayne Stevens, Gary Taylor player and assistant coach at Pontardawe Town about how the crisis is affecting them. Rhys Fisher, Captain of Ammanford came on to tell us how they've been impacted but also to tell us about an online football tournament that they've joined. Robert Rees is a rugby writer, he was telling us about the difficulties he's facing while football reporter for the PA News Agency Phil Blanche gave us his thoughts on the season being extended and the Euros moving to next summer. Some real heartfelt stories too from the Chairman of Bonymaen Rugby Club Richard Scanell, Martyn Bate, Fixtures Secretary at Briton Ferry Rugby Club and Colin Kirkhouse Team Manager at Birchgrove RFC. As Colin passionately put it, these Grassroots clubs are a vital part of communities in South Wales. Let's hope the WRU offer all the help and support they can!
