Agree there is a clear distinction between promotion and ready. It then becomes chicken and egg - results today with ‘older’ players that have a less room to grow/time to contribute or invest game time in ‘younger’ players with more growing room/time to give.

Can anyone recall the ages of the Cov players from the halcyon days that ended up with several internationals - my club history does not stretch back that far but I suspect they weren’t waiting for 1st xv games until they were 25/26?

More recent examples (Chiefs and Sarries) suggest long term success on the field requires a less ‘ageist’ selection policy.
