Peter Jackson, hitting the nail on the head.

Post by LordDowlais on Wed 13 Apr 2016, 11:36 am

First topic message reminder :

Why should Zebre qualify for the CC ? It is a joke, and it is a scourge on the league that a team that can ship 160 points in 4 away games can get to play in the top level European competition. 


[size=30]Peter Jackson column: Stripe me! How can this Zebre side be Champions?[/size]

Zebre have lost their last four away matches by scores that could double up as opening stands at the T20 World Cup – 52-0, 32-0, 47-0 and 29-0. It adds up to a cumulative score of 0-160.
Despite those results, Zebre are on course to take their place in what Europe’s clubs call the Champions’ Cup, a grandiose description for a tournament supposedly reserved for the crème de la crème.
Edinburgh stand to suffer more than their Welsh rivals, ironically so given that they duly followed Leinster, Ulster and Munster in taking maximum-point advantage of the depleted Italians at Murrayfield on Friday night.  Scotland’s capital team may have lost a few games too many but they stand alone as the only club to have done the double over the champions, Glasgow.
Ospreys, twice crowned Pro 12 champions with not one but two Grand Final victories over Leinster in Dublin to their credit, supplied the Lions with five players for their last tour and may well supply five more for the next one, to New Zealand next year.  Despite their proven quality and ever-presence on the starting grid for Europe’s premier competition over the last 13 seasons, the Swansea-based side will be disqualified from the Champions’ Cup even if they recover sufficiently to finish seventh.
Some will say serve them right for a season of under-achievement, that nobody gets a free ride into Europe because it’s a competitive world – except that argument doesn’t apply when it comes to rewarding one Italian team for avoiding bottom place.
The same fate awaiting Edinburgh or the Ospreys could also very easily apply to a third club, Cardiff Blues. They are in the same boat and therefore in much the same danger of running aground despite having scored the most tries and most points going into the weekend round of matches.
Although seven places are available to Pro 12 teams in the Champions’ Cup, seventh gets whoever finishes there nowhere.  Rules are rules and the multi-national dimension of the Pro 12 requires that all four countries must be represented, including Italy, irrespective of where their two teams finish.
Treviso qualified from second last place because they lost only 18 of their 22 matches against Zebre’s 19.  Both are still in the bottom two except that Zebre have reversed the roles on the strength of a Christmas double over their compatriots.
Connacht were sacrificed last season although their seventh place did earn them entry to an abortive play-off series involving Gloucester and Bordeaux.      The intrusion of the World Cup leaves no room this season for any play-offs. Whoever finishes seventh – Ospreys, Edinburgh or the Cardiff Blues – will go straight into the secondary European Challenge Cup along with all those stranded in the nether regions of the Premiership, Top 14 and Pro 12.
Altruism is a noble quality. Guaranteeing Italy a place at the top table of the club game gives some reason for using the word European in the context of the Champions’ Cup.
It seemed a good idea at the time, one agreed on the basis that the Italian teams would become more competitive. Instead they have become less competitive, jammed in the same reverse gear as the national team.
If the tournament organisers, European Professional Club Rugby, are not already under pressure to review the Italian arrangement, it can be but a matter of time before they are.
The rules, as agreed by the Pro 12 as well as everyone else, dictate that the first four Pro 12 places go to the highest ranked team from Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. If, for argument’s sake, the top eight finish in the same positions as they were on Friday morning, Connacht (1st), Zebre (11th), Glasgow (6th) and Scarlets (3rd) would fill those four positions.
That leaves three more to be filled by the remainder of the top six – Leinster (2nd), Munster (4th) and Ulster (5th). Ireland, therefore, face the happy prospect of all four provinces making the Champions’ Cup for the first time. Wales face the grim one of their representation being halved to one.
For the chosen few, Europe’s supreme club event brings prestige and commercial clout.  In a true meritocracy nobody qualifies for losing four matches out of every five even if that means narrowing the horizon of the tournament and renaming it the FIB (French, Irish, British) Cup.

I'm not sure how you've arrived at that question, but you seem confused.

Who is the 'they' you refer to and where did I claim 'they' wanted to reduce the international window? You seem to be conflating the 'theys' there.

New Zealand, you'll note, play international games outside of the international window.

So, after that little diversion which had nothing to do with reducing the international game we go back to the original point. It's not a serious option. Well done in trying to distract from that though, including all the little insults!

What?

Reducing the international windows is a serious option.

That doesn't necessarily equate to reducing the international game.

That's not even subtle.

So international players get less than a week to recover between games and, games would be going ahead on weekdays. No it's not a serious option at all.

FFS.

Do you not realise that countries who contract all of their players can choose to play games outside of the international windows? Even Wales does it.

You can reduce the windows but not necessarily reduce the number of games played.

This is not a difficult concept to grasp.

I realise that there's games outside the international window, but this was about expanding the Aviva by an additional 4 teams and there being too many games. Your solution was to make the international window shorter. Now you're saying that wouldn't actually have an affect on the amount of games.

Plus if the Welsh were trying to take international players from the league I don't imagine th ePRL would be happy.

You took that as a suggestion? Fair enough. I can see how it can be misinterpreted that way.

Fair enough if that wasn't what you were saying. So it comes back to too many games by just adding 4 Welsh teams.

I don't think it does. The LV could be scrapped, the season elongated, the number of international games reduced, conference systems put in place, all sorts of solutions.

It's not beyond the wit of man.

Easy to misinterpret you when you flip flap. So you do want to reduce international games. You want to reduce the off season for players. Not going to happen. LV games aren't primarily played by first team players. Pipe dreams.

Remember 7 phill only plays darts in the dark and makes up his own score. Even when you do turn the lights on and show him the actual score, he just closes his eyes and carry's on.

Where's the flip flap?

I can see why the Irish are petrified by something that is so obviously beneficial to its participants but, come on, it's not too difficult to envisage a season where the international game is played in a block allowing the clubs to play first team games the rest of the time.

All of that allows many opportunities. Embrace them, be happy for others.

It's not desperation. There would be no commercial value in adding the welsh into the PRL.

And now they're desparate to share the tc money with the Welsh and increase the burden on their players! No, sorry it's not going to happen. Pie in the sky thoughts there as the English game is currently about to enter a boom period.

No you are just being difficult

Considering I quoted your previous post about a desperation argument from the Irish it's not difficult to figure out what I was referring to

Could you clarify? I wouldn't like to misunderstand your point.

Thanks.

Two things: nobody is suggestion sharing or increasing the burden.

Try again.

So you do want them involved again?

Presumably not sharing the tv money though, to be only subsidised by the WRU. Who will be cutting the amount of international games, except when they won't be, but simply playing them outseide of interntaional windows!

I'm not sure the 180 is a darts term or you spinning on your heel to make a contracdictory point to one you've already tried.

It gets a bit boring when you become deliberately silly. It's not something that you have to try to be, you know.

You shift your position so much it's hard not to be silly.

You want 4 Welsh teams involved in the prem but you don't think those additional games will be a burden on the players and you don't want a share of the tv money.

I haven't shifted position once.

As your second sentence proves.
