For once it sounds like a sensible compromise. It will suit the franglais clubs, not so much the national teams but they have the player pool to cope.

Think France will suffer more than England though. And both might regret it in a few years once the continuous intensity takes its toll

The 6N is what finances the Celtic nations unions that is why the english want to screw it up , let them go I say.

The RFU and English clubs really don't care about the Celtic unions in the slightest, this is just English clubs trying to get more.

I think the 6N should be the same for everyone and I don't want to see any more games added domestically or internationally without some extra provision for the maximum number of hours a player can play in a set timeframe. English players are already some of the most overplayed in the world and those rest periods are important.

So you want the 2 biggest money bringers of the 6N gone and this is something you think is actually a good idea...? It would be the death of rugby for the Celts. The international teams bankroll the clubs and a fair chunk of that international funding comes through the 6N and in clubs through the European game.

Like it or not it's the English and French funding NH rugby. You act as if no other nation has ever made any attempt to change the format of tournaments.

Agree. The French and the English are important components of the whole tournament. Without them the Welsh would be *fupped*.

Not the French just the English , they are the ones who don't like the comp.

It has already been confirmed that the five unions other than England have voted against the proposal.

Not the English, the RFU. It had no support among the players at all.

Well if the RFU are concerned about player overuse , they controll the EPL and have a big say in the Euro comps, no need to affect any other nations .
