..and that is why I don't like it in its current format, and why I cannot be bothered watching it or even trying to get interested in it. The RCC purports to be a true European Club Rugby Championship, but it simply is no such thing and it won't be so long as teams are disadvantaged in qualification merely because they choose to participate in a cross borders league. A true European Club Championship will have representative teams from the best each club in each country not in each league. I hear arguments about fairness. Under the old Heineken Cup system a team like Glasgow could finish 10th, but because they are the best placed Scottish side they would qualify while Welsh or Irish teams that finished ahead of them might not. This is not fair on the teams that finished ahead of them, right? What about if they won the Challenge Cup in, say 2019 (which would qualify them for the 2020 RCC) and then finished 14th and last in the 2020 Pro14, how the frakking hell is this fair for the other teams that finished ahead of them? If you want fairness then keep it simple. The best way would be to allocate a number of teams to each league based on the size of the league. Go back to 24 teams and allocate eight teams to each league, and then you leave it up to the organisers of each league to decide how they allocate their eight teams.
