NPC being devalued

Everyone seems to be jumping on the band wagon in bagging the compressed NPC.


This isn’t new, however. While the rest of us were still enjoying the novelty of midweek games last year, Stags coach David Henderson talked to me about his concerns at the lack of time he had to work with the younger player in his squads.
Those were valid concerns and it seems there’s a groundswell of support for yet more changes to our domestic rugby factory. The big unions want to go back to a 10 team round robin. The smaller provinces obviously won’t vote for an early Christmas. Meanwhile the game is suffering. What’s the answer for the NPC? Can it be fixed, again?
