So what does this Conference deal do for the competition. Only one thing really. Guarantee for SuperXV Rugby home semis in each of the three countries. Apart from that it's a crock of shit. If one looks at the current table, and with Highlanders winning this weekend at home to the Force, there will be three clear cut teams leading, Canes, Chiefs and Landers.
Surely the teams playing the best sport day in day out deserve to have home advantage come finals?
And I see in my crystal ball when it goes to 18 teams, then what? Yeah conferences gone. And about itme.
