Peter Bills: Union-league hybrid 'saviour of both codes'
Think we might just have enough rugby in the professional era, what with league and union? Reckon that TV just can't cram any more games into its schedule for the two codes?
You might just have to think again. From Australia comes news that a new version of the game is being trialled, which involves 13 players a side. It is an amalgam of league and union and is being called the Hybrid Code.
Two of the Australians who are putting their names to it are ex-Wallabies coach Bob Dwyer and out-half Mark Ella.
