The most disappoitning, yet unsurprising, part of this is that typical administrative fat cats (Ritchie, Tew) and blokes like Hansen put their names to it in exchange for some quick $. These guys understand better than most that:
- Finding a global Rugby calendar which works for Clubs & National Bodies has proven impossible so far, before you add a third player in the mix
- Players are already playing too much football from a wellness perspective
I see nothing in it I like, if in someway it helped to get a global season I would think it had a slight redeeming factor. But the best thing I can see of it not working Hansen etc are insisting it will not be a rebel comp, either WR on board or no go, which I think will stop it. The last thing we need is another abomination of our game!! We already got bloody 7s. christ it getting like 20/20 cricket etc, I still struggle with 50 over in that game!
