Ditch the Premiership Cup and make clubs focus more on the A League for development. Use those weekends for Premiership games and shorten, not lengthen the season. And, yes, that means playing league games on International weekends, but that will only promote having a squad with less international marquee players in favour of more strength in depth, which in turn would mean players could be rotated more confidently.

The Lions must be protected. It's a scandal that they might not be. The Lions are my favourite side in rugby. Then Quins. Then England.

the Lions are good fun and all, but above Quins and England?!

Yes, absolutely. They are everything that's good about rugby in that all country allegiances go out of the window for the only time in 4 years. 50k+ people travel around the world to watch them. The receiving country loves them. And there is (arguably) more pride in getting a Lions cap than any other.

Personally I find it scandalous that, because it doesn't benefit them, the home nations RFU are trampling over the Lions.
