Naturally assuming the teams can rustle up enough players after the NH Club Gannets have picked over the bones :(

The Highlanders will be fine. I hear Southland B are an all-consuming fire this year. :( :(

Feel for the Highlanders - a first round 'bye' is an awful idea. The sooner we go back to an even number of teams and scrap the first round bye the better.

If we're serious about player welfare, giving a team a week off in the first round, effectively removing one of their rest weeks during the season, isn't a great look. Not to mention playing against a team in the second round who has a head-start in terms of match-fitness/cohesion.

Not sure how an early Feb game at 7pm in 40 degrees in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane will go...

Chiefs draw is tough - over first six weeks I think. Byes are spaces out so ok - nice finish as I think 3 out of 4 at home but 1 might be Suva game.
