Competing with these 4 teams during the 6N will be interesting.
We're still still here!

Think it is meant to start after the 6 nations. Pretty meaningless for all concerned if played during 6 nations. Pro 14 final brought forward to late March as I understand it.

Apart from the fact we are all desperate for the cash.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Desperate for cash is not in doubt but what broadcaster in their right minds is going to be willing to pay to show a fully loaded South African franchise taking on the Scarlets minus their 12/15 Internationals. As I understand it the reason they are cutting the pro 14 short with only 16 games is so that they can play this tournament during April/May in the build up to the Lions tour.

There's going to be a hell of a lot of change for the better over the next 2 years. CVC want the club game to be as important as the international game.

We are well placed to take on this new change. We have a good board, our own ground, a strong squad, a good academy and talent id system and a unique name  in world sports. 

We also have a large support base even if we are generally unsuccessful at getting them to the ground on matchday.

Very true. I think it'll be a turbulent few years but we'll come out of it better in the long run.

So the current PRO14 is effectivley decided, Leinster win Conference A, whilst Munster have a strong lead, ahead of us in Conference B?

Irish League for Irish teams hey? 

No play offs? No second place? We need to claw back Munster to make any final?

I think it would better if we parked any short/medium term hopes of a British League, not sure it's healthy holding out hope for it.

There doesn't seem to be any desire from the English for us to join them, the only noise we hear from across the bridge is around ringfencing the premiership rather than increasing the jeopardy.

We need to be realistic in making the best we can out of the available options rather than wasting energy hoping for something that's not going to happen.

Yep. The appetite in rugby SA for expansion and progression is key here.

Really hope this is the platform, although we all need to be open minded I feel.

Also we will have to sharpen up, be one of the Welsh sides, or these guys will trample us.

This development means we will need to maintain a high quality roster of NWQ to compete during 6N. Playing the Sharks with a weak pack would not be much fun

The SA rugby guys are seeing this as the ideal warm up for the Lions. They will be fully loaded in my view.
