South African domestic rugby competition

The SA domestic rugby competition I feel at this stage is a contributing
factor to the national teams lacklustre performances. Our top provinces are
not getting the exposure to tough games as what was the norm say 2 to 3 years
ago. Sure there are fine players in the lesser glamour provinces, but to watch
every weekends slaughters is not appealing to me and in my humble opinion not
good for our national endeavours. A change to the old system where the top
provinces are playing each other every 4th weekend could remedy the
performances of our national side. The lesser provinces can then be used as
feeders unions where regular scouting can provide the better players the
oppertunities with trials to the bigger provinces.
