Click on link in article. Has Australian Super Club Rugby Championships.

That has pretty well whole country represented.

Designing the Bledisloe Super Bowl

Do you see a flaw with jlt and oz teams hooking up? Gonna take a stab at others…
1. Aussie teams. Personal taste on teams people would like to see playing. Put best foot forward with brands, flight cost saving for geography. Randwick, basically appropriating their brand. North Sydney Oval is akin to Ballymore.
2. Force. Concede was probably a bit cheeky to throw in with nz bunch. Fairer solution is to rotate aussie teams through nz conf.
3. 12 teams. Only two games v ozzy teams. You want ten teams right? I know we are the easybeats, 😛 , but with JLT far more talent.
4. Name Bledisloe. Again leaning off a powerful brand to make it bigger. Yes there is a reason it is powerful and not to be messed with.
5. SOO. Nz may not want nth v sth. All good.
6. M10 cant be played at start of year. End of year still works.

Who would be your teams from NSW?

Less is more.

What are the major flaws from the way you see it?

Designing the Bledisloe Super Bowl

Honestly, I’d olay them as Brumbies-Rebel-Force v JLT All Stars, or PI opponent.

Look you could probably always rotate one aussie team through nz conference.

Force expensive travellers no matter who they play.

Come on. Indulge KD. Lay it out.

Ah. Yeh. Just a working title.

It all comes back to cost of competition. Driving between Syd, Act, cheaper than flying and hoteling in NT, SA.

Also RA has less money than AFL and NRL. Neither one of them are based in NT.

Boradcast potential. Need to see revenue increase.

Benefit is being able to play. Plus long term you have JLT clubs linked with SR clubs.
For NSW, what tweaks are you thinking? Which teams?
Just bare in mind SOO series captures whole state.

All of the above. 😁

Western Force bring the fifth element to Rennie

😁

The global season: Who wins a contest of good intentions versus self interest?

That is problem. Kiwis wouldnt give up best isaldn talents who could potentially play in ABs.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

Unless they were playing for JLT teams already, and JLT came and played in oz.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

Yeh, I the JTL solution is more likely. Club rugby, JLT, m10 start of year.

Then after that a few JLT teams base themselves in Oz for a couple of months.

Rodgee. Then it is JLT.
JLT is not happening this year. Players will not play due to COVID19. Top 6 JLT teams could quarantine on way to Aus and nz.
4 teams play in oz in as…
nth syd panasonic wildknights, randwick kobelco steelers, etc etc. Final two JLT teams merging with force and rebels. Force rebels extra talent then directed to reds, tahs and brumbies.
Two JLT teams play in nz.
This then gives. 7 AUS teams. 7 NZ teams.
Same finals again. Aus Champ v NZ Champ Superbowl.
Winner plays SAFFER-PRO14 champ.

Damn just thought of something…
Based on COVID19 reality, there is actually a massive opportunity for far more teams in Aus this year! Could solve the JLT issue also in the process.
There is a snowballs chance in hell that JTL will get off the ground this year due to COVID19. Lot of talent in JLT and teams just doing nothing. So play JLT teams in aus.
Reds, Tahs, Brumbies, Rebels, Force,
Nth Syd PANASONIC Wildknights.
Randwick Kobelco Steelers. You get the picture. Link JLT teams with West Syd, QLD country, Sth Brisbane. Then you look at PI linked teams also with Rebels, and Force. Suddenly things start looking a whole lot brighter. You’ve got a fully fledged comp which is NOT diluted, and not a financial strain on RA. JLT sponsor teams, and there is Japan Broadcast content.

Would it be though? Samoa and Tonga had a pretty decent turnout in NRL. You make a point though, you would need few local legends flying the locals flag who local patrons may identify more with.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

I think that is where it is going to have to go. Please please please though. No Top league during Trans Tasman Super Rugby though.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

Japan Top League is in direct competition with Super Rugby. Unfortunately people have not cottoned onto the fact that Japan Top League kills Trans Tasman Super Rugby long term.
Need one stop shop for talent.
Best solution, hold Top League-NRC-M10 at start of year.
THEN hold Super Rugby.
For talent question, have Tokyo link up with Western Force, same timezone.
Samoa, Tonga, link with Rebels and Nth Syd. Fiji with 2nd qld team. That is 7 teams. Extra Japan Top League talent may lead to an 8th team, perhaps Randwick.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

True. Think we solve the problem by brining the mountain to Mohammed. Bring PI teams to aus franchises and create north syd in process. Diluted aus teams are then nolonger diluted, and path for pi.

Why the trans-Tasman bubble must include rugby

World Rugby should fund. Instead of European teams playing in Pacific, Pacific nations would okay in Aus-Nz super rugby.
