    That's sort of my thinking. With the relative clear air we got in the first 4-5 rounds our ratings were quite good. We should be looking at making that a more prolonged and consistent thing.

    What impact does the new global rugby calendar and restructured super rugby comp have in terms of opening space in the domestic calendar? Non-test Super Rugby players should return to the club competitions much earlier I would think.

    Either that or they will search short deals in Europe/Japan to bridge the gap. Places like Italy or the French Pro D2 could see an influx of players on 2/3 month deals. Guys looking for experiences while also earning a few extra dollars

    Will depend on what happens with the NRC I would think.

    You’re right, that’d be under the proviso the NRC is no more and no professional domestic alternative was offered.

    A new season is upon us.

    Was good to see Alivereti Veitokani win the Fiji Sportsman of the Year award a few months back, based largely on his expliots in the toast rack-winning Fijian Drua team.

    The would-be Reds poach won't be playing NRC this time around, though.

    I haven't seen any squad names for the Drua at this stage, but my gut feel is they won't be quite as dominant in 2019 as they were last year.

    Should be an interesting comp!
