I see from BBC Teletext that Alan Clarke late of this parish has left his post of Head Coach at the Ospreys. The post is not clear whether he jumped or he was pushed
Apparently personal misconduct or something.

Did any of yez see this?

1. Its a bad idea and
2. Why would anyone want the worst teams that can see fit to withdraw all their internationals for a glorified testimonial?

Not a big fan either, a British and Irish league suggests the Italians are being hung out to dry (and the South Africans too I guess). Would make the Hieneken less special and I guess from an international perspective not sure it would benefit us. The Welsh are desperate to play the English teams more often.

I would say - "if they want to watch English teams, would they just f**k away off and support Bristol"...

but then realised, when you look at the "crowds" watching the Ospreys or the Parc y Empty - then perhaps they've already went off to support Bristol!! :duh:

Welsh are crying bar steward. They've feck this up themselves and now think this will solve it. They will be crying again if this doesnt work.

If the B and I league happens, I reckon there will still be an annual trip or two to Italy by plenty of Ulster fans!

Bring the B&I league on - purely selfish point of view - means being exiled over here in Ingerland I can get to see them more than the odd HC away match. Seriously though. Would be great. South Africans still have Super Rugby and 4N. Italians should strike a deal with FRU to get into Top 14.

10 Celtic teams and the 12 ring fenced English teams for a straight home or away 22 team league, or bring up Newcastle and one other from English championship and ring fence to make 24 teams, 2 conferences home and away with playoffs.

I'd go for two divisions of 12. First year: 6 English, 3 from top home nation (probably Ireland), 2 from second home nation (probably Wales) and 1 Scottish. Division 2: 8 English and the rest of the home nations. From there on, promotion and relegation according to results. Although, I can't see anybody but the Irish being happy with that. After two years could end up with an Anglo-Irish first division.
