Meh, Super Ibérica was doomed to fail and left lots of debts. Their backers weren't trustworthy. Portugal was right to stay away at least for its first season.

And I feel in rugby Portugal acts as Spain acts in all other fields: ignoring there is a neighbour. On this side of the border every single talk about professionalising our rugby or creating a professional league involves Portugal. But nothing comes from the other side. Can't blame them considering our ill-treatment as a country in other aspects.

I disgree. Effective management and sustainable financial planning for youth investment is what will change rugby for Portugal. We will never have a professional league, so why not ring fence the domestic successes we do have, invest in youth and continue to lean on those who go overseas and those born overseas who qualify. The talent in South Africa that is Portuguese qualified is unreal.

He may be a nice guy, but he was the worst FPR President ever. A complete disaster.
And everyone knew that he was not the guy in charge, he was the dummy of CDUL's president. When things started to go completely wrong, CDUL's president left him alone. Very sad story.

What would be your suggestion for a successor and how do we get out of this small town politics? which just seems to be a vicious circle?

Mr. José Redondo would be my choice, but I strongly doubt he would accept.
