    Be funny if a heap of Kiwis were playing for Fiji and Samoa

    Great that Twiggy will be paying these guys so the teams can just look after the locals. No doubt he will do whatever it takes to make this work.

    I doubt that's how it will happen

    You know, I wouldn't mind seeing a few of those "name" players who are ineligible for Fiji and Samoa, but have Fijian and Samoan heritage, playing GRR for their respective teams. Guys like Toby Faletau or Kuridrani. I reckon Semesa Rokoduguni (Bath & England) or Virimi Vakatawa (France 7s) might be bolters for Fiji GRR.

    2020 will be more open. The likes of Cooper and Vermeulen are only on one season deals. One year in bleak city will be enough for Cooper to want move again. He has spent all his time in Australia living in Queensland one winter in Melbourne where the sun doesnít come out will make him look for warmer climes.

    I seriously doubt the Bulls have the money to keep Vermeulen long term. Mitch went looking for more money to buy big name players but the board said no we donít have it.

    Stormers tried to sign Schalk Brits but they donít have the money to pay him. I say a lot of the signings may come from SA due to this as they have two more years being stuck in Super Rugby. Rassie and SARU also want to reduce the number of pro players in the country.

    The Rabble have a lot of excess players and can only have 34 full time squad members. There are players there without contracts.

    Rokoduguni has played for England recently and they wonít allow players to play outside of England in to their test squad.

    Nobody mentioning The Badge? He'd be my top pick. Don't tell me he's retired at only 30?
