Personally speaking, I think that the AW Cup should be scrapped. I can't see any 'real' benefit other than blooding youngsters/returning injured.

The free weekend could be used to rest players not on international duty.

As far as ring-fencing goes, no problem with reducing the AP to 10 teams, again, player welfare would benefit even though revenue would suffer.


No ring-fence. Again, personally speaking, I would like to see 3 down and 3 up.
No playoffs - straight forward relegation/promotion.

In the likelihood of a promoted teams ground not being "up to standard", a 2 year period from date of promotion is granted to come into line or it's back from whence you came.
