THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF S12 VS NPC DISPARITY

THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF S12 VS NPC DISPARITY

Watching the European soccer competitions - Champions League, UEFA Cup, CWC
etc, makes me think the old football players have the right idea.

Let's get rid of the Super 12 and their artificial teams. Instead, let's have
new national leagues in each country, like this.
             New Zealand                  South Africa               Australia
           1st Division 10 teams   1st Division 10 Teams   1st Division 5 teams
           R/R Competition =18games    R/R Competition = 18games    2XR/R = 16
games

Top 4 from NZ and South Africa, top 2 from Australia, and say 1 team from
Argentina and 1 team from South Pacific provincial champions. Thus we have 12
teams - but the same teams that play in their respective national leagues
(Auckland rather than the Blues). We could then play a league style format, or
perhaps two groups of Six (Super Six, anyone?)

Anyhow, comments?
