    according to The Rugby Paper yesterday, CVC are looking at buying shares in the Pro14.
    Maybe the start of a British and Irish league.

    I’d like this, we could have 15 teams and call it the super 15.

    NOOOOOO.

    Unions - please tell them to f**k off and never darken our door again.


    CVC are bad bad bad news. Long term health of the game will suffer - regardless of whether a bit more money is pulled in at the top end. It'll stay there and you'll end up like France.



    [I'd be worried about the SRU and WRU. Neither of those can see beyond $$$ flashed in their faces.]
