    I agree with the point on stats, but I was using it as a comparison to a stat that also didn't have outliers removed either (which I didn't bring up). I believe it makes the point.

    Plenty of players who were already in the pathway have used the NRC as that vital stepping stone. Guys like Ready, Kerevi, Latu, McMahon, etc, stand out.

    A fair few players have wholly emerged from the NRC too. Naivalu, Simone, Lolohea spring to mind.

    As far as the loss of capital, a lot of the money in it comes from a sponsorship and television money that exists purely because of the NRC. Sadly, new sponsorship dollars are required, but you see my point.

    You're forgetting its a team game. People who score stand on the shoulders of giants.

    Stop being such a grumpy old man.
