Rejected petition Stop the merger of the Wales sevens team into teamGB

This is retrograde step for Welsh rugby and Welsh sport in general less representation will mean less interest in Wales plus the loss of Welsh soft power

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

The Welsh Rugby Union is an independent organisation, and therefore the Welsh Government have no direct role in their decision making.

As a result, it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action called for by your petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
