Have the goal posts shifted again?
Chat of the playoffs coming back if the rainbow thing is now cancelled.

If that’s the case it should just convert to a straightforward 12 team home and away league with top 4 playoff.

I see Edinburgh’s new ground is finished.

Made of Meccano.

Nice wee spot is Bilbao.

A Spanish side based in Madrid would be required too please.

I see Glasgow have signed a centre for next season - Sione Tuipulotu who is currently playing in Japan.

Born in Australia, can play for Scotland via a granny from Glasgow....the SRU really do their research :lol:

A quick calculation gives the four Irish teams 210 league points and the other eight with 165.

The four Irish teams are the only ones with positive points scored differences.

If I was Scottish, Welsh or Italian, I'd be more than a bit embarrassed.

Apart from Connaught, Irish teams have only lost to other Irish teams.
