Good! Why should we prop up the southern hemisphere with £? Thoughts?

I think it would have been a good idea, especially for the exposure of Fiji and Japan but because the likes of Italy and Scotland as well as the traditionalistic old farts in Europe were too afraid of promotion and relegation it means it had to be scrapped.

Had to be scrapped to protect players. Now lets get our season back to where it belongs.

It was exploitative, money hungry, bad for player welfare and designed to enrich the larger nations at the expense of the less well off. I'm absolutely shocked the unions didn't go for it.
