  • Cup Runneth Over

    A proposed two-nation tournament has put the future of the Heineken Cup in jeopardy.

    The Heineken Cup, "one of professional rugby's biggest success stories, was driven closer to oblivion" when the leading clubs in England and France announced that planning "was under way for a rival two-nation tournament to be launched next season," according to Chris Hewett of the London INDEPENDENT. In a "fierce declaration of intent," England and France gave provincial and regional teams in the other "major European nations -- Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Italy -- a maximum of six weeks to join them in their new venture." Premier Rugby CEO Mark McCafferty said, "We made it clear more than a year ago that we would withdraw from the Heineken Cup as it is currently constituted at the end of this season."
