How about something like this immediately after end of Club season:
Top 2 Shute Shield & 1 x NSW Barbarians feat. top players from other Shute Shield clubs and unaffiliated Tahs.
Same in Brisbane.
Melbourne, Canberra, Perth all do the same, but only the Premier team and the rest are barbarians. Players from other states/regional comps eligible for any Barbarian team.
12 teams. Two pools of 6, 5 games and then SF & Final (top 2 each pool).
Have not thought this through so ready for the pile on.
This sounds similar to club championship product they had proposed as part of broadcast package.
