Italians have been issued an ultimatum

"They either agree to the new competitions by Thursday or they are out. It's as simple as that."

Italians explain their concerns, and identify issues to be resolved. CP talks to start on 14 April.

There are some good points about the unfairness of the PRO 12, in there argument but at the end of the day no Italian teams in Europe cup is not a issue. So if they don't sign by Thursday kick them out.

Very easy to say. But just as we talk about promotion to the English Premiership being important, it's also important that Italy is afforded the same opportunity in the 6N and European Cup. If the Italians are irrelevant then so are the Scottish and arguably the Welsh in the current state. But within reason they should be afforded the opportunity to get their act together and challenge the current stronger nations. Otherwise what has the last 20 years been for.

Good point ourla, with which I sympathise.

BJ, if you had read the article I am sure you would have deduced what I meant by Cp, and would have realised that it was a clumsy error on my behalf, and did not need questioning as though not understood.

I've read the article and it may be only me but I am unable to decode the CP or Cp. The only reference I see to 14 April is "One thing is certain. No announcement will be made this week over the future of European rugby. On Friday morning there is a meeting between the PRO12 unions and the Italians have notified they will be available to meet the other European representatives from Monday April 14."
I am neither clever enough to understand nor stupid enough to play this game

Sorry fleabane, I have also read the article and cannot see where it refers to CP or even those two initials representing something. Could you please elaborate? :smt001

Other than any amount which is paid for English clubs participation in the new cup, what business is it of the Italians how much English clubs get from BT for the premiership?

I'm not here to deduce what people might think they've typed.

I expect people to say exactly what they mean and not leave things to misinterpretation. There is a preview facility on this site so people can read what they've typed before submitting it. It's a shame it's not used by everybody.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.
