Shut up and take our money.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen was interviewed in the Daily Mail yesterday and called for the introduction of two annual blockbuster showdowns; the Rugby Championship winners take on the Six Nations champions, while the European Cup champions and Super Rugby winners square off.
“‘It’s a no-brainer.
“You’ve got to say, ‘what’s best for our product so we can keep attracting people to come and watch it?’
“First, our players need a decent pre-season. You’d play club competitions simultaneously. We could have the European Cup winners play the Super Rugby winners and the Six Nations winners play the Rugby Championship winners. We need some goodwill to sort it out.”
Make it happen!
