Last month Gavin Mor­timer ex­plained the ru­mours of Toulon pur­su­ing com­mer­cial av­enues in the United States, (­dream). Here’s what you thought about Euro­pean teams eye­ing up deals across the At­lantic… Hope this doesn’t hap­pen. Look at the French in­ter­na­tional team les Bleus. Be­cause France bought in a lot of over­seas play­ers, they haven’t de­vel­oped their lo­cal play­ers. The us doesn’t need that. Colin Cameron Cou­ple this with the Pro12 try­ing to in­clude as many as three Amer­i­can fran­chises and it makes for some very in­ter­est­ing read­ing.

David Camp­bell Brown If in­ten­tion is to turn Mi­ami into a mi­nor league for Toulon play­ers I don’t see us fans flock­ing be­hind them.

@Amer­i­canRug­byPod Pro­gress­ing Ro­ma­nia, ge­or­gia & spain rather than usA should be the way but $$$ hun­gry bosses as usual rul­ing. @TMMshop There may not be a ‘right’ way to de­velop rugby union in the united states. This Amer­i­can rugby fan will take it how­ever it comes.

Don schwarzen­bach sounds like an ex­pen­sive way to get min­utes for academy play­ers.

@Prop­mas­ter­race French clubs seem bent on forc­ing their way into PRO Rugby. Peter Vine
