Six Nations set to introduce trial Bonus Points system in 2017

If we're going to play a game of 'Unrealistic Idea Generating' we could add a visiting team to the 6N each year. Invite Samoa, Fiji, Tonga etc to the party. Visiting team varies every year, fans get to see a different spectacle, adds a new element... Never going to happen, but it's a nice idea.

It isn't unfair to make wealthy established nations travel to play a rugby match. England rarely get their arses out to these other countries and make an absolute mint off countries like Fiji coming to play here. The more we support these developing nations, the better.

Play off could work, but it takes place in the country of the team from the lower league. That way even if they lose they get some money from a visiting team coming to play.

Sevens from Heaven - The Fiji 7s Olympic Gold Story

I've not yet met a rugby fan from any corner of Great Britain who felt anything other than respect and fondness for Fiji's achievement.

Absolutely. The Grand Slam remains the pinnacle of NH rugby.

Promotion and relegation would be the next step, in my view, with the likes of Georgia joining the fun.

Excellent decision. While the 6 Nations has given us a lot of really exciting close games over the years, anything which encourages attacking rugby should be applauded.

Sevens from Heaven - The Fiji 7s Olympic Gold Story

I was OK up until the captain's dad was spurring him on with tears running down his face.

God, I love this sport.

Fiji were the most deserving Olympic champions in the history of any sport, ever, in my opinion.

A look back on a record-breaking All Blacks year

Mate, you need to brush up on your football knowledge. Brazil have been shit for ages.

I think it's great that the ABs have pushed the boundaries of what is considered possible. Twenty years ago you'd never think that a quality international prop would need soft hands and an eye for a gap. The ABs have made the world rethink what is possible on a rugby pitch from 1 to 15. Bloody great for the game.

In time other teams will catch up with where the ABs are now. The interesting thing will be to see how they kick on from here, how do they get even better, what else is possible? It's fantastic.

Chuck in the Haka, which so many of us love to hate, and you've got a great spectacle which the world can buy into.
