From Mr T Wynn

Sir: Payments in the French Rugby Union must put Bill Hogg, the Scottish Rugby Union's chief executive, in something of a dilemma, since it is the same chief executive who threatened Scottish students with being "professionalised'' for playing amateur rugby league.

The case must also be a embarrassment for the RFU because of the way they treated the Cambridge student, Adrian Spencer, who is still banned from playing the game because he, too, played rugby league as an amateur.

Yours faithfully,


St Helens, Merseyside
