I guess the roof problem is it was the a first for rugby, so there were lots of complaints about the advantage it could theoretically give? So WRU said visitor can choose to select criticism. But ffs we've moved on, WRU just need to say, from now on, or roof, we'll put it how we like it.
At present if both sides don't agree, then the away team has the final say.
That’s the same as just asking the away team what they want?
The default is open.
So if Ireland said they wanted it closed, and Wales said they wanted it open, what would happen?
Away team decides.
Err nope. Both teams decide. Read the Six Nations policy on it.
“*We run the competition by consensus.
"What we are doing is staying with existing protocols, which basically say if both teams agree conditions demand they want to close the roof, or both teams want to close the roof anyway, that's fine.
"But what we can't do is allow any one individual team an inherent or underlying advantage.
"The other unions perceive it to be an advantage for Wales given they could play all their games under the roof given they understand the conditions.
"These games are won on any tight margins anyway. It's a case of everyone wanting a level playing pitch."*
