Spot on, the entire system and season structure is broken

We basically get a new team back when they finish and there is no time to gel the two squads back together before European fixtures are played usually. The whole Autumn cup is pointless, they just saw the opportunity to cash in on the Amazon tv deal. Money talks sadly and there is little we are able to do about it.

We never get that time anyway, I'm sure the last (extra) AI is usually the weekend before the 3rd round of European fixtures.

Yes but they’ve got a playing budget in the region of £11m which is higher than every side in the Gallagher Premiership

The Autumn Nations Cup isn’t pointless. That money is desperately needed

Exactly it’s shocking and hugely amateurish
It's definitely not something you see in any other professional sport.

Cricket works that way.

Yes,of course!!Since it was taken off terrestrial t.v,I haven't been able to see much of top class cricket at all.Lack of exposure is a big cause for concern there,and continually debated too.

Do results affect competition seedings Steff eg World Cup or irrelevant?

Nope, we're locked in as one of the 4 top seeded teams for next months draw.

£11 Million pounds? seems a bit high that sn? don't doubt your inside info but you sure that's right?
 
12.25 million euro seems a lot just on a wage bill
 
They don't really have any huge overseas stars there and a lot of their squad are homegrown academy kids

The Irfu stated last month that they were haemorrhaging about 5m euros per month on the national and provincial sides to that figure sounds about right, with that sort of funding they could afford to,keep all of their academy players happy - whereas we and the other regions are always struggling to stave off the English Premiership sides and their offers of bigger wages or scholarships.

I have no idea if it’s accurate. Easy enough to spend that on a squad of 50+ though? 
We're still still here!
