Because some people care about the game in it's entirety. NSW and Queensland will always be the heartland. I do agree how ever that 5 Aus sides 5 NZ sides and then 4-5 from the pacific is the best way forwardWhen South Africa ****s off we'll have 4 x Aus teams, 5 x NZ, the Sunwolves and possibly the Jaguares.
Assuming Twiggy's plan gets off the ground the IPRC will have the Force and 5 others. That's a total of 16/17 teams spread out over half the world which is really what we have now that isn't working.
What I really want to see is grass roots investment in WA rugby. **** the East, the ARU made that bed. Why would anyone in WA want to invest in the private school-Shute Shield-Waratahs-Wallabies model that the ARU think is the way forward while the Force are playing Hong Kong out of season?
The future is Scotland's Asia Pacific Rugby Championship.
5 x Aust
5 x NZ
1 x Japan
1 x Fiji, Tonga, Samoa
Argentina too far away, they can play with the Northerners.
