It's tricky isn't it.
You kind of feel that everyone should be able to play in all games, but because there is a game every
weekend from mid-August (training starts in July) to early May that means that they can't take a week's holiday through nine or ten months or more, and have to take it all in a batch in June/July.
There aren't many well paid professionals who would agree to that!
