    World League proposals come with a £5bn carrot. Interesting to find out how this will break down in terms of distribution (it is not going to be split equally 12 ways that is for sure) across the 12 years and what it means in terms of 6N being in free to air (which should be a red line).

    What is clear is that it risks hugely undermining the 6N, the RWC and rugby in scotland.

    6N – in world league proposals a grand slam winner might not even qualify for the world league final, so the 6N becomes a mere first stage of a more prestigious tournament. Conversely, a team could get the wooden spoon but finish above another 6N side in the league table. Who gets relegated?

    RWC – what is the point? It will be much easier to win than the World League, whist winners will be de facto word champions. Just look at how irrelevant the 7s World Cup is in the shadow of the World Series. Problem for World Rugby is the RWC showcases T2 sides and without it they will be rightly accused of cutting those sides adrift.

    Scotland – World League to be introduced in 2022 when we play Italy in Rome. Relegation means exclusion from 6N for two years and fatally undermined our pro-sides. Can rugby in Scotland seriously survive without games against home unions? Can SRU sell out Murrayfield for Scotland v Spain? Relegation will happen to us sooner or later and every season will be an existential threat. Dodson needs to kill this in committee.

    Fantasy 6 nations update

    Happy with 18th Place.

    However, I think mass disqualifications are in order as nobody in the top 12 teams has more than 1 Scottish player (and many have none)!

    Full disclosure, I only had McInally.
