the top sides had at least 3 top aus/nz plus a couple of kolpac exempts in their sides.The loss of RU since 95 is a long term dry up but every side had a couple of converts and because the dry up happened almost twenty years ago it still reduces the pool of higher quality players.The loss to RU and NRL is about 10 players at the moment and growing and these tend to come from the top few sides so hit them more, so it could quite easily be 6 but the exact figure is not as important as it is just a ball park figure.
RU has been pro since '95. The NRL cap is more recent, admittedly. But can you name the 6 quality players that have been taken out of any top squad, I think we'd struggle to find 6 out of all of the 'top' squads at any one time... By top squads, are we saying any team that has been in a final (GF or CC) over the last, lets say, 4 years? Or is that too much? Just GF finalists?
