I think it depends on what you value. I am hearing from some posters here that they don't care about player drain and we just bring them back for the Wallabies after decent coaching in the North.
If that is the case, then bring back any player we want as the important thing is a winning Wallaby...
Agree with this bolded bit - the rest assumes that some players will never learn, which contributes to our drop in numbers I am betting the Brumby Darcy Swain will be the next to go and you and your mates can applaud that one too. Then if they make it you can say 'Well we can just buy them...

I can understand the support for grassroots in such an arrangement but the demise of Super Rugby will almost certainly; condemn the Wallabies to sub 10 WW position.

This article is one of the best I have read on the mess and the lost opportunities due to, as Geoff Parkes says so well "He was the right type of man for the times. It was just that he was the wrong man."
Let's give it some time as this has been one of the really big fat bottoms in our code. I am assuming that a few of the guys in the states and Super Rugby have some brains and see the current model must change or the whole thing goes amateur within the next 10 years.
