Blimey, I thought Jersey was a long way to go to watch an away game!

As there's no room in the Prem perhaps some of the English clubs should join?

Always thought London Welsh and Scottish would join, seemed like a perfect fit as would London Irish joining but hey ho, good luck to the Pro 12 newbies!

Rugby, at times, can be an utter joke.

True BD, and I'm totally against it. But as I mentioned many times there is little money in the Pro-12 currently estimated to be about 6M in total, not per team. Hence the teams are heavily subsidise/run by their Unions, and why the hard up SRU and WRU are unlikely to assume the costs of running LS or LW in the pro-12+. But adding these two SA teams has doubled that total revenue at a stroke, although I also read that the average costs of a Super12+ away trip is about 0.5M so the extra revenue won't go far.
