Ex rugby boss handed new Labour jobs for boys post.

So as part of the Welsh Labour government jobs for the boys scheme Roger Lewis, who recently announced he was stepping down from the WRU, is to take over the running of Cardiff airport.

Mr Lewis is currently the Chair of the so called Cardiff City Region of which RCT is a part. Again a Welsh Labour Minister appointment.

This body is supposed to drive the regeneration and economic development of the area but has so far done absolutely nothing.

Mr Lewis is of course well known to rugby fans in the area for presiding over the setting up of regional rugby which many argue is still not working. A stand off between the WRU and the regions recently over money and contracts threatened the future of the game in Wales.

We can only hope that Mr Lewis will be more successful in his new role
