I've been thinking.
This is the tail end of my first full year following rugby. I have watched a TON of rugby, catching all the Pro14, all the Premiership, and all the Super Rugby, on top of internationals and random events.
In each league, the most predictable result has come about- the Irish national team (i.e. Leinster) won the Pro14, England (Saracens) won the Prem, and now, the All-Blacks (Crusaders) will face the Pumas/Jaguares for the Super Rugby ***le...
On one hand, I know I should feel lucky for all the top quality rugby, and should be able to appreciate just how good these top teams are. But on the other, it all feels... anticlimactic? Predictable?
In each of these leagues, is the divide just too big? Or am I only seeing it short-term, being relatively new?
Just looking for thoughts - it's been a fun year, I don't know what I'm going to do with myself until September!
I've been watching USA Eagles for 10 years and Major League Rugby for 2 years, but this was my first year watching Pro14 and SupeRugby thanks to ESPN+ and I loved it. They were some exciting firsts, Benetton made it to the Pro14 playoffs for the first time and the Jaguares are in the SupeRugby finals for the first time. It's been a fun ride!
