So there is not a single concrete proposal in there
Classic eRFU/PRL nonsense through the daily telegraph

All about more revenue opportunities ... yet the championship made 10% more revenues last year

What he's saying is sell the TV rights to a pay walled channel. That's it
I wonder are the eRFU on the payroll of BT Sports and Sky Sports or as I suspect the PRL are trying to add the 6 Nations rights to their package in renegotiating with BT?

They always appear to seek change after England and/or the premiership clubs do poorly. Morons!

Paul, the only think wrong with your post is that it absolutely would have found it’s real home in my thread: Reasons to dislike Lionels.

They also want world rugby to look at injuries as they have too many injured players

I believe the 6Ns committee received much criticism on this very forum in recent times...

Actually world rugby needs to look at injuries that is no doubt.

I'd be especially grateful if world rugby could look at knee injuries in Ulster in particular :cheers:

They turned down a deal and ended up with a far inferior one
That decision has now given PRLeRFU the leverage to attack the competition again
