    Nothing, but I heard they were planning to ramp up the energy at the events, more noise, music, lights, like a 20/20 cricket game, a bit like they trialled with Rugby X, not sure where that went

    This works in cricket because of the nature of the gave - individual players with personal followings facing off. Kohli v Joffra, McCullum v Curran etc

    You don't have so much that in rugby.

    This is just a waste of time IMO, and as I said, adds potential for injury and fatigue to players that already play too much rugby

    I suspect its a new format becAUSE that can be copyrighted/registered/whatever and monetised. 7s and 10s cant do that cos ithe7y already exist.

    World Rugby is moving to limit contact training.
    They should also limit the ammount of playing time, otherwise coaches will organise training matches to get round the ban.
    Which should rule out all the top European players
