If Welsh Rugby Union Chairman, David Pickering, wishes to organise a fundraising dinner for the Labour Party as a private individual, I have no problem with that.

However, the WRU should be above politics and its facilities should not be used to promote the narrow interests of the Labour Party. Rugby is something that unites the nation and this sort of action is totally inappropriate.

I know David Pickering has apologised for using the WRU’s email and I accept that.

But he and the WRU have some explaining to do as to why this was allowed to happen in the first place.

Peter Hain and Carwyn Jones, who were hosting the £1,000 a head dinner, should also apologise for their part in this saga.
