At the risk of sounding repetitive...

Scrap Super rugby completely.

Have the cojones to stand by your real, roots level product - Kiwi provincial rugby.

Stop propping up the ARU, who can never win against AFL and the NRL.

Our best provinces should go on to play the best Currie Cup provinces ... not 'franchises'. Maybe even some biannual comp to also meet the best Top 14, Guinness Premiership and Heineken Cup teams at some stage.

Let All Blacks play in their home towns again, and not all emigrate to Canterbury as a career path.

Make Tests special again i.e. do not play the same teams 3-4 times a year.

Otherwise, if the All Whites beat Bahrain in two weeks, well, rugby can kiss its TV audience goodbye in 2010.
