Way to crush all hope for other nations in Europe. Whats the point in even developing rugby in other European countries?

Can't have one group of Premium Tier Nations risking ranking points by playing their lesser players whilst the other group relax by the pool and have their off season barbies....

Now here's a definition of arguing just for the sake of it warning

Let's face it, innovative thinking absolutely terrifies you Run

Let's be innovative. Let's innovate means and methods that will Share the risk burden out between the big shot sides of the North .. and the South. Why do you always 'run' when that notion is proposed and details sought on the logistics of what that might be?

Be innovative. Think about how the SH might lend a hand here in being nice to the Tier 2 teams..... in a meaningful way.

Actually, I've already made many suggestions for the other tier 1 nations on other threads. But when I make one involving the actual tier 2 countries we are discussing on this thread, I get silly comments about not addressing the tier 1 nations that I have discussed on other, more relevant threads - which is indeed a definition of arguing just for the sake of it.

Nope. Won't work, Rowanbi. All arguments take place in the real world.... and therefore you can't neatly divide them up into separate 'threads' and expect everyone to keep a firm eye on all of those threads to get a rounded view of your opinions.

My summation of your posts - on the two threads I've seen you on - is that 'European' rugby has too high a regard for itself, is too powerful, gets all the best shows and that ways of weakening its grasp of power must be found by World Rugby.......................... ie, not as many World Cups, and much more mandatory inclusion of tier 2 European sides in Tier 1 European contests.............

..... and all the while, the less worked Southern boys get more breaks and take things easy like as they see their Northern rivals be taken down a peg or two with all the extra games demanded for them and massive point-dropping risk games they're obliged to take on. Wink

Nice!

Rowan,have you ever considered that you might stimulate more progresssive, innovative discussion if you didnt season your suggestions with so much sarcasm and cynicism?

Great news! Does this mean they all get a vote each? Surely it must bring the Eastern Europeans a step closer to regular competition with their 6 Nations counterparts, whatever the format...

No it means USA will offer to bring a much bigger market to the scene but in turn will demand many more top quality Internationals to take place on their territory... so the likelihood is that the 6N might will now migrate to the good ol USA for a season or two....and the USA will also demand, lobby and pay for 14 votes on the council. Wink

Bye bye any chance of Georgia getting to the 6N. It'll be Scotland and Italy dropped to let Canada and USA in. A Bright New Dawn awakens. Scotland, Italy and Georgia will be forced onto the lineup of the Southern Championship

Not sure how you came to all those conclusions. So do the new trio of nations actually get a seat on the council - with a totally independent vote? I assume that's what this means. Argentina & Italy are apparently getting another seat/vote each too Yahoo

Bye bye overwhelming Home Unions/France/SANZAR dominance, I'd say...

How do you come to that conclusion?

Why would Argentina and Italy vote to allow others to take a share of what they are getting? Headscratch

You think they are going to be generous and help out the little guy?

Italy, no. Argentina, possibly. They were the driving force behind setting up the 6 Nations, which seems almost tailor-made to helping bring Brazil & Chile up to speed.

But with Argentina and Italy both getting an extra seat on the board, Pichot in at VC, and Georgia & Romania getting a vote each, that means a total of 32 votes, I believe, of which 11 will be held by Home Unions and French delegates (including Beaumont), and 6 by the SANZAR trio, meaning 17 in total for the 8 foundation nations, or a collective 53% of the vote. Previously they'd had 64%.

Anyway, the Guardian puts a positive spin on it and suggests it will indeed help Georgia and Romania in their quest to join the 6 Nations:

he move enhances the prospects of Georgia and Romania joining the Six Nations, a move that the Rugby Football Union – looking for a new chairman to replace the departing Beaumont – has opposed, along with the other five members. Lapasset’s parting gift as chairman makes it harder to keep the door closed.

You mean the Americas Rugby Championship? Not called the 6 Nations other than informally. And you really haven't heard of the actual 6 Nations? And isn't the team in the Championship actually Argentina XV rather than Argentina? You said on another thread that this wouldn't actually help teams as they wouldn't take anything other than a full test side seriously; you changed your mind?

But you said help such as that was worthless as it had to be a test team; you changed your mind? It's not the 6 nations come on, use it's proper name. And have you really not heard of the 6 Ns?

Really? Considering you said the S. American version, that's for South and North America picard

If that's beneficial to those nations why aren't similar tournaments in Europe beneficial to the lower tier European nations?

They need to be playing at a higher level in order to improve. Brazil & Chile now get to play Argentina and the North Americans annally. ENC teams are stuck with their peers.

Well you were wrong to say the Americas Six Nations. What other is there?

Well the other one would be the one that is actually called the 6 Nations rather than something else altogether! And onto the question you seem to be ignoring:isn't the Americas Rugby Championship worthless due to it being Argentina XV?

And also where's my apology for trying to say I favour an all white SA?

You do realise there has been an annual South American Championship for about 20 years and it was every other year prior to that?

You do realise that its not the Argentine test team that play in the '6 Nations' just an Argentine 15 just like the Tier 1 teams do with the Tblisi and Nations Cup so why does this tournament help the S. American teams but not their European counterparts?

So you can't answer the question and have to side step?
