    I get the concept - it should just be enhanced. Do you get that concept?

    Quality argument.

    I suppose it is fair enough - when you don't have point to make - it is probably best to not try and make one.

    Isn't the Lions complicated enough without throwing a few languages into the mix of 'challenges' to be overcome?
    Complication is a fair point.

    No one has said why a Euro Lions team playing under the Lions banner which is more inclusive, has better players and would be playing against stronger opposition would suddenly become less commercially attractive.

    The host Southern Hemisphere countries would take it in turns to have the tours - just as now.

    Would the Lions attract any major Italian or Georgian sponsors (particularly if they had very few, if any players involved). Most of their players play in France and those likely to travel would play in the top French clubs and so would be involved in Top 14 play-offs.

    It would be just simpler if the B&I Lions just gave the Georgian & Italian Unions a cut of their income.

    Yeah. Why don't they just give money to the GAA too while they are at it

    So you dont think a Euro Lions team, playing against NZ, AUS, SA and Argentina would be a money spinner? The best players in the world in every (Euro) Lions series playing against each other - why the feck not?
