I doubt that the 1960's way of doing things works today in the highly organized and scripted modern pro game.

The issue include a lack of set plays, poor tactics and coaching once together. The Blues and Scarlets have similar styles, but the Ospreys play a totally different way.


Plus the Dragons are mostly useless and irrelevant and hardly contribute to Wales anyway, which puts more of a burden on the other three teams, especially the West Wales ones.

I think having the squad from 3 teams helps rather than hurts, the players are all familiar with each other.

Whether Newport is viable is another issue
