Can I ask why you are so strong on it being run parallel to SS and Qld PR?In terms of when such a competition should run, my very strong view is that it should run parallel to Shute Shield, Brisbane PR etc. Obviously as we still have Super Rugby, then this competition would be semi-pro - which probably isn't a bad way to start.
Why not run it for a whole year parallel to NRL and AFL? I presume any third tier would want to get the developmental benefits of the returning Super Rugby players.
