Maybe one each from Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, who else ?? What about promotion / relegation, or would it be a closed league like the top RFU clubs want to do to their Premiership? Lots of issues, but I fear the lust for money might overcome these.

    The last sentence hits the nail on the head. Where there is money to be made (or even just a perception of money to be made), the issue will be forced through and deal with the fallout later (see - Division 1, Feb 1992)
