Sounds a good one Neil for this coming season just to get a competition going with not too many games. Plenty of motivation and jeopardy as well đź‘Ť

If they wanted to cut down on games next season they could have a traditional knock out comp for Europe, look something like:

Round 1 - 8 Teams from the Continental Shield with 4 going through
Round 2 - Challenge Cup teams (20) join the 4 team from round 1 with 12 teams going through
Round 3 - Champions Cup Teams (20) join the 12 teams from round 2 with 16 going through
Last 16
Quarter final
Semi final
Final

The most any team from the Pro14, Top 14 and Premiership would play would be 6 games and it would be something a bit different.

Also is behind locked gates rugby actually financially viable? No gate money no bar takings no corporate takings no match day takings eg programmes , merchandise food all playing and coaching staff off furlow. Plus well have to test every player medic etc every game and fund travel costs. I’m not sure broadcast rights will cover that tbh. Regions run at a loss now this is just going to make things far far worse

If there are groups of 4 it’s still 3 games home and Away and 3 knockout weekends. So that is still 6 weekends? Same as 3 weekends left in this years cup 2 months of european rugby plus autumn games plus the rearranged scotland game plus 6 nations. It won’t happen not enough time if we cut the lge to say 16 games thats 4 months  plus 2 knock out games. 18 weekends of rugby. Sorry just saw groups of 3 so only 4 weekends

I am struggling like you. My understanding is that the 3 weekends of this seasons European competition will be played in September. Next season will be restructured so there are 18 teams in the Champions Cup with 6 groups playing 4 games saving 2 weekends. Also I can see the pro 14 being 16 weekends not 21 i.e. playing your own conf teams home & away = 12 games plus the home & away derbies against the other conf teams giving another 4 = 16 games total. Those two changes would save 7 weekends.

RR I think you will find that the move to pro 14 starting December is meant to accomodate Internationals being played in October/November & 6 nations in April/May. Lots of ideas being thrown around which is good but, of course, nothing firm can be put in place until results of partial easing of lockdowns filter through from Europe.

Joe Tomane to Dragons? anyone confirm, took him ages to get going at Leinster.
Always felt if Leinster wish to win an Heineken cup they need better foreign signings than him.
Nobody I know is interested in this trophy award by the way.

World Rugby chiefs are proposing to move the Six Nations as part of radical plans to shake up the game's sporting calendar. 

The Rugby Paper report that pushing the competition from its usual starting date of early February to later in the year - in April - in order to ease the conflict between the club and international game. 

The bold plans would also see the European club season start in December, with a source saying the proposed schedule is getting "a lot of traction with clubs in the Gallagher Premiership, the PRO14 and the Top 14".
