For most people who were not born in the narrow Oval Italian Islands, rugby is definitely more understandable, here’s the new format with the once Celtic League Welsh, Scottish teams – franchises, and then the Irish. Finally Italian from 2010, then second choice from 2017 South Africans have stayed at home this season because of Kovid.
Then the Celtic League, then the Pro 12, then the Pro 10, and finally the Pro 14. In fact, it’s not over because we have agreed to create four South African Super Teams from Joberg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town (Tribute, now far, far away). I do not know how much focus is on this case, in Nelson Mandela’s Rainbow Nation): Everyone has the resources to rival the entire Italian Federugobi and the ability to defeat the Italian national team itself. Lucky them. Exactly ten years ago, Italy was selected to form two franchises to lift the most talented players from the depths of the endangered Italian Championship and send them to war only in Europe. The fact that the results of Bennett Treviso and Aeroni Viadana, who later replaced Zebras, were below expectations is directly related to the national team’s bad ideas based on 95% of the players in these two franchises. Business, on the other hand, is guaranteed because CVC recently bought 28% of the equity fund Pro 14, sprinkling Italy with millions of euros. Losers, but rich. It only gets worse.
The overall situation of this match, which brings together the Celts, Latinos and South Africans, is difficult to understand (and because of the visibility this cup will remain in the dozen) and the relative attraction to potential neophytes. This Amba Aradan should explain to readers every year who is watching the do’s and don’ts of those who see the strings of this cup circulating in sports newsrooms (except Veneto or Parma media). Well, patience is a virtue of rugby, let’s move on.
Why South Africans in the European Cup? Yes, because franchisees (actually representing some of the older states that make up the South African Confederation locally) are tired of South Africans playing ping pong in the Pacific and Atlantic to face the Australians. , The New Zealanders and Argentines found support in Europe long before the Pandemic (in favor of the same time zone) and now it is the second most important “European” Cup, as the strongest English and French clubs do not lower themselves under the champions.
Below you will find the new setup for next season, the beginning of which is in progress and the end of the version in question. Tip: If you want to start watching Pro 14, start the matches between South Africans and Irish.
