Think about it: you have the NH model which involves privately-owned and profit-oriented clubs (albeit heavily subsidised by the unions) versus a more Socialist command-and-control model prevalent in the SH.  There are two superpowers in each Hemisphere - England in the North and New Zealand in the South, with France and South Africa effectively like junior partners in each respective Hemisphere (similar to Britain and China in the Cold War).  Each superpower has its nearby vassal states - Fiji, Samoa and Tonga in New Zealand's case; Wales, Scotland and Ireland in England's case. Etc. etc.

Scarlet96 might be able to shine some light, too, if I've recalled the name correctly.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

It's the Hot War for me tonight EP - we are up in London in our daughters boiling flat near Marble Arch and I can't open the windows on the 6th Floor due to Health and Safety! Big smile
