120m, apparently.

Is that an Anglo-Welsh League I see on the horizon?

Article in the Times today on this. Suggesting that CVC might introduce some sort of playoff between the two Leagues - either a grandfinal, semis or from quarter finals onwards.

Not sure we need anything like that really, as interesting as it might be. Could devalue the Euro competition in a way.

Think it's pretty much conjecture at this point though.

Any euro competition without the french seems like euro light. If its another anglo welsh thing where we play weak teams then no thanks. I expect they will either buy into the french next or the euro. That seems to be their end game. Buy up the north first, then the south and create a world league.

Exactly WP - to hell with limiting the number of games.
I saw on the Bath board that the Prem teams lose a combined 30m a year and CVC will want about 50m a year (or vice versa), so where will the extra 80 a year come from to keep everyone happy?
Not by having the top players resting.
