Sam Warburton’s three-point plan to make rugby safer

#2. Reform the league system

Warburton explained that a two-tiered system with 12 English clubs and 12 sides from the other home nations, with sides playing each team in their division once, would mean clubs would only play 11 games – plus play-offs – a season.

“If you have the best possible product out there, then there will be less need for so many matches. You should be able to sell a better product more easily and therefore make more money.

“I just don’t think the leagues are structured properly. The truth is that we need a two-tier British and Irish league, but the problem is that the Welsh, Scots and Irish need the English a lot more than the English need them.”
