I'd actually quite like to see someone who's willing to go in and shake things up like Pichot, but just without Pichot's endless stream of bad ideas.

So i've read that a global comp is on the boards now with promotion and relegation from the RC but not the 6 Nations. North looking after itself as always.

If the RC have relegation they get either Japan or Fiji into the competition, not a massive drop in standard from Argentina at all, both competitive against tier 1 sides with wins in th elast two years.

In contrast Europe gets Georgia, who have never beaten a T1 team and who are a significant drop in standard below Italy. Italy are already flagging behind badly and haven't beaten another T1 team since 2016 and haven't won a 6 nations game since 2015. The best interests of rugby in Europe are to reduce teams, not add to it until someone pulls a finger out.

A bit late now, but would the game be better served by getting rid of the vote for a Vice Chairman and appointing the runner up to that position?

Pichot already said he wouldn't want that... It would be like appointing Clinton VP in 2016.. just weird cause they've got no mandate
