Good post, and I agree with most of it bar extending NRC.
Most of the value add IMO is the better grade players combining with non test level soup players, brings the level up above Premier standard.
Without the Soup players I don't think any of the sides would be better than a fully fit Woods or Marlins side.
So unless the point is to relegate the SS comp,i don't get it.
I think relegating the Premier competition is Pfitzy ultimate point. Instead of the Premier clubs feeding into the NRC competition during its current window they would act essentially as reserve grade sides to a wider NRC. I don't mind that idea. Though I think the NRC could still be extended without impacting on the current club structures.
