Like the idea - but lets not have 9 teams again as bye did not really work. Make it 8 or 10 teams and if not ready to have 2 sides added wait until we are.
Not sure if we could put two teams in next year - maybe the year after..
I like the idea of beginning and ending the season with rivalry rounds. City/Country, Rays?Rams, Viking/NSW Country, Rising/Spirit but with 9 it makes it a little uneven. At least we'll have 8 games again. If the Fijian squads works out well, I'd be in favour of looking to involving a Samoan squad if World Rugby were willing to come to the party again.
