Someone who doesn’t love their egg chasing probably wouldn’t tune into Leinster Dragons. Whereas they would maybe tune into the bigger games where most of the internationals will be playing, with the exception of the Xmas/New Years interpros, which is indeed disappointing.
Don’t know much about the South African sides, but do not expect them to do any better than midtable, for the first couple of seasons at least. They were lower table in Super Rugby and have lost what internationals they have.
That rule, mentioned by Bart, seems strange. Wonder what would happen if they developed a really quality player - would he not be allowed to play for the international side unless he moved club?
