The former captain of the British & Irish Lions and of Welsh, Sam warburton proposed an idea of league between clubs of Britain and Ireland to raise the level.
In writing for The Times, Warburton wants a system with 12 English clubs and 12 teams from the other home nations where they would meet once. As a result, it would mean that clubs would only play 11 regular season games.
“It is true that you do not want to move while you are playing. But I remember that the players said they would take pay cuts to play fewer games. That’s why I’m so inflexible in less playing time, ”wrote the former Wales and Lions captain.
“The problem is a broader issue of the amount of duels played. I have always said that there should be a maximum of 25 games per season for each player, including international matches.
Lastly, Warburton said: “I just don’t think leagues are structured properly. The truth is that we need a British and Irish two-division league, but the problem is that the Welsh, Scots and Irish need the English much more than the English need them.
