The structures proposed above are airborne steak and kidney in a crisp pastry crust.
BUT... the money generated by the RWC must go towards international development, not into the clubs' pockets. I think we can all agree on that. And anyway the clubs will all benefit from the new talent coming into the game if Rugby League strengthens the smaller nations and expands into new ones.
NZ Warriors helped the Kiwis a bit, but it was the sheer number of NZ-qualified players coming into ALL the Australian clubs gave it critical mass and led to the World Cup triumph. Some NRL people are now looking at Fiji and Tonga and the riches they can unearth there.

Do we actually know where any WC profit goes ? All to the RLIF ?, some split between the participating nations ?
Even allowing for the discounted tickets, we must be on for a decent profit this time surely.

Sort the structure out, and get a rich Toulouse in for starters.
