How about a British & Irish League?
I think it's time we had a British and Irish League.
The Welsh would like to play with the English, the Irish would like to play with the English, and the Scots would like to play with the English. Oh dear, I wonder what's holding it back?
My theory on countries is that we are all just split up by lines that someone drew on the ground hundreds of years ago.
Newcastle and perhaps even Manchester are closer to Glasgow and Edinburgh than they are to Bath and Gloucester and it's just a hop to Ireland and Wales.
Anyway, there we were after the stirring 33-11 Glasgow win over Gloucester on Friday night and local captain John Barclay came to join us on BBC Radio Scotland.
"What really motivated us," he said. "...was watching Sky this morning when Will Greenwood said that Gloucester would definitely beat us and it was a banker for them."
Now, Will Greenwood is the best rugby pundit on the box bar none and he was a fantastic player, but there is this attitude that permeates the English Premiership where, despite the public utterances of some coaches, you get the feeling that they don't really respect Scottish teams and underestimate the Magners League.
The Heineken Cup has been played 14 times with four French winners, six English winners and the Irish, bless them, providing four wins for the Magners League.
I watch Magners League rugby every weekend and I enjoyed seeing Edinburgh pushing Bath all the way in Sunday's televised Heineken Cup game.
Perhaps it's too easy to compare leagues and talk about the Magners League being more open and flowing because the threat of relegation isn't there, but there is a smidgeon of truth in it.
Premiership rugby is as intense as it comes with careers on the line every weekend and I love it.
But sometimes a Magners League game can get you off your chair with rugby that's a touch more open. Though, hand on heart, it's marginal.
The Magners League has hosted star names like Todd Blackadder, Darryl Gibson, Doug Howlett, Rocky Elsom, Christian Cullen and others, although finances now dictate that Glasgow and Edinburgh rely almost exclusively on home-grown players now.
The big question is whether the English teams would want any more to do with their Celtic neighbours.
In football, they don't because to have your own exclusive club means that you keep the revenue and if Irish, Welsh and Scottish teams were to join a league then some English teams would miss out and be relegated to secondary status. The same rationale would apply to rugby.
English rugby is a fantastic thing, with players from around the world brought in to provide glamour, and, crucially, wins as well. But you know what would make it better? Bring in the Irish, Welsh and Scottish...
