^ Yup, show me da money. The Mitre 10 is objectively better and does run (somewhat) longer.
You've got to build up that kind of tournament. NZ have worked at it for decades.
It's still only 9 games plus 2 weeks of finals. That's barely longer than the NRC.
I think it may be time for us to try something different but I also think it's pointless suggesting that there is an amazingly better option when the parameters have to be largely the same.
