I caught a chat on this issue at half time during the Cardiff blues Connacht game. What made me laugh was the fatalism. Yeah it's boring but nothing could be done! Jonathan Davies just said well league has 4 less players on the pitch without actually suggesting any changes to union! Curious
That's the worrying thing for me, the four extra men bit. If the rah rahs decided to 'make a change' to their rules and get rid of the two extra back rowers 'to free up a bit of space on the pitch' then I guess we are headed toward the hybrid game. The yawnion journos then go into overdrive to tell us that it was always thus. A little bit 'Animal Farm -ish'
