    My concern that is is all well and good for the Tier 1 teams but you only need one bad season and you are out and you loose all that revenue.

    A big reward but a big risk. I can see why some unions are against it.

    I could see a situation whereby the 10 tier 1 nations are protected and the Tier 2 nations are subject to promotion and relegation. A bit like (but not exactly the same as cricket with test status)

    I just saw the main reason why I think this competition will come into being. 35mins in to the championship decider in Wales and a big electronic advertising boarding announces "Peter's Pies".

    Now I'm not knocking Peter, or his pies, but could you imagine similar advertising at a football European Championship? Unless Peter has incredibly deep pockets, he will only be contributing a fraction of the ad revenue that a global multinational would provide. This will be the push behind making the spring tournament continent wide and the year long tournament truly global via the two divisions.
