Why bother,  we've got enough rugby as it is.  There seems to be no future
plans to expand the S12 any further,  and the top level players are
complaining about playing too much,  so I guess you'll just have to
continue dreaming.

And when will we fit this in - in the 13th month of the year.

If you want to see more rugby go and support your local club.

Why not include the Lions in the Tri-Nations, all that has to be done is
a new name dreamed up.

Understood, but does this mean that players will now play a 12 month
season. If so, they are really earning the vast salaries they can now
command as their playing lives will become very short.

Surely the way forward is not to increase the work load but to decrease
it.

I wonder what the players point of view would be?

If its anything like English professional cricketers it will be more
money for less playing.

"At these prices you'd be mad not too".  Moronic quote by
Paul Diddams to "Observer" journalist on "The London Brewers
Beer festival" held last Saturday.

Didds me old mate,

I accept the above as tongue-in-cheek.

I thought everyone agreed that the level of players salaries was
ridiculous (except the players). I think less money and less rugby.

To tell you the truth after all these years I'm getting bored with a
"clash of the titans" every other day.
