Aren't Romanian Superliga clubs worried about losing their PIs to WSR (or even MLR)?

Too much new pro sides being created, I'm not sure if there are enough players in the World for that. I guess it'll be necessary to focus on new player's-incubator nations like Kenia, Madagascar, Sri Lanka or even PNG (converting them from RL)

I guess there are enough players in Europe. Plus you can hire some guys playing semi pros in France or England.

There's plenty of Pacific Islands players who would gladly take up contracts in Romania. The more professional clubs there are globally the better it will be for Pacific rugby.

I know in Zimbabwe there are many skilled rugby players who are unemployed so cannot afford to play that if given a professional contract would not let it go to waste. I am sure most of Africa could fit that description.

Western Sydney team off the table because it's 'too soon'.

The sport in this country is a joke run by self interested suits who don't know what they hell they are doing.

SMH is such an appropriate name for most of the news I read from that site
