Was thinking same thing Potsie.

Distribution of playing talent between Australian and NZ is key. Great to hear RA open door for NZR players to play in our teams.

My concern is still Japan though. Just think there needs to be synergies between Top League and club rugby, and then the Super side of things. If right connections made Japan won’t be a competitor for talent but an ally.

Agree.

For other players, my pick would be an ANZAC Barbarians v American All Stars (USA + Argentina + Canada).

Either that, or players 7’s tournament?

Do it in three sets. https://www.theroar.com.au/2020/04/09/give-super-club-rugby-a-crack/

Some good questions you have there Franklin.

1. How long Cannes play in Qld Country?Look there is something being missed. If a NZ team travels to Oz, why not take advantage of that and turn into a home game for Nz team. In fact I missed a trick in the article. Ozzy teams could also be dual city.

2. Why would tahs fan support chiefs rebranded as Randwick. Key is including, local talent. Success will be another reason. Kiwi style of play also very attractive to watch.

Well they shouldn’t be, they would lose market share to NZ dual city franchises.

Open to all and be specific. What works, what doesnt and why?

1. Blues, Crusaders and Brumbies remain unchanged.

2. Reds and Waratahs get rebadged. Opens the door then to SOO series.

3. Melbourne Highlanders, made up of a handful of current Rebels. Primarily based in NZ, with many games also in Melbourne.

4. Qld Country Hurricanes. Again comprising some of Rebels. Primarily based in NZ, with many games also in Melbourne

5. Randwick Chiefs. Deliberatetly included yo be polarising, but equally brand awareness. Primarily based in NZ, with many games also in Melbourne.

Remaining Rebels and staff distributed amongst teams.

😂 good one Ron. Crusaders eould dominate.

In NRL, the Kangaroos don’t need to play a whole season in the provincial State of Origin to be successful. Three games is more than enough. The rest is club footy.

So if NRC happens, it would need to be supported with a SOO series. Concentrate best talent from clubs to provincial, then provincial to Wallabies.

Melbourne would still be there as the Melbourne Highlanders.

Like NRL, there would be catchments available for each team.

Imagine the Melbourne Cup. No fans just horses. Haha. The horseys will have to social distance. One horse every second barrier. 😛

Here's where the 2020 AFL grand final should be held

Size of ground doesn’t count with COVID19. Health groups are already up in arms about 20k attendance at games in WA due to potential for a super spreader event. You would have a GF in an empty stadium. Would be same result as A baron MCG

Yeah State of Origin deciders are a pretty silly concept.

Again money also. Additional paychecks to compete.

If coming from qld or sa, exemption may be possible.

Origin was played in Melbourne.

Won’t be capacity games due to COVID19 limits.

Not quite. Any decision would be later down the track. There is noise for Optus Stadium. I disagree. Too early for that call.

You would likely only get 20k in Optus anyway due to COVID19. In a year where large dollars have been lost, makes more sense to have a three game series.

COVID19 is changing the rules. 😔

Sorry Perth’ers.

Give it a few weeks.

Agred call should be made as late as possible.

Money. One final chance to settle the score. Works in State of Origin.

Super Rugby. A League. NBA. You get the Tokyo Drift.

Yeah. Guilty. Not a big follower of Perth.

They won’t sink. But nor will they grow.

Yeah, kind sorta, there are no manufactured teams here. Expect matbe Brisbane and Qld Country. Could easily be North Brissy, South Brissie. Nth Syd, could be Bears.

Marketing 101 is to expand with an existing product. The most poorly known teams in Oz expand to key Australian regions. Chiefs, Highlanders and Hurricanes.
