English take their ball and go home

ENGLISH rugby clubs say their reason for pulling out of the Heineken Cup is disproportionate representation for the Celtic nations (Sport, December 10).

There are six pools in the competition. Irish provinces currently top three of them. No English team is higher than second.

Is it, perhaps, the English who presently enjoy undeservedly disproportionate representation?
