Scubby Posted July 6, 2010 Share Posted July 6, 2010 This is the most obvious move for the international calendar and needs to be done now! 2012 can put us back on a four-year cycle of Ashes series. We cannot fit in the every two years that we had in the past but can alternate venues every four years - promote the event and make it really special. It can also take place between GB and Aus to add that extra nostalgia. It simply has to happen. There will not be another opportunity like this in the International calendar for a number of years. I also love the four nations and WC concepts and all three can have their place in the calendar 2011 Four Nations - UK 2012 Aus v GB (ASHES) - Australia 2013 World Cup - UK & France 2014 Four Nations - Australia 2015 Four Nations - UK 2016 GB v Aus (ASHES) - UK 2017 World Cup - Aus & NZ 2018 Four Nations - UK 2019 Four Nation - NZ & Aus 2020 Aus v GB (ASHES) - Australia This is so simple it is untrue and everyone is happy. Imagine Aus v GB at the Sydney Cricket ground for the Ashes in 2012 - awesome. Some things just need preserving and sticking to!! The whole Ashes concept can take on a new role with a new coach (or existing coach having to apply) and captain separate from England. It would also give the players who play for, or declare for, Ireland, Scotland and Wales something to aim for. This is so simple it is untrue. Get on with it RFL!! Start the campaign now!
