Re: Anglo/Welsh Cup - scrapped

So we now have the Premiership, the Premiership Rugby Cup, and the Premiership A League, the last also now solely involving Premiership teams with the jettisoning of London Irish. Add to that the repeated raising of ringfencing. All this on top of recent moves to restrict participation of Pro 12 (as was) teams in the Champions Cup and teams from Italy, Spain , etc in the Challenge Cup, whilst the RFU seem dead set against a two tier 6N which might allow the likes of Georgia to play at the top table, and is very reluctant for England to play against Tier 2 nations.

Meanwhile, the Pro14 has expanded to take in South Africa and is now eyeing up North America. Super Rugby has expanded to take in Argentina and Japan and is also now eyeing up North America.

Good to know the English game isn't self obsessed, insular and inward-looking, isn't it?
