That's an interesting take on things, and not the angle I was looking at.
I was more thinking about the attrition required to play in the 6 nations, and the high possibility of your best players getting injured.
The only way your point makes sense is if Leinster and Glasgow play the same style as Ireland and Scotland respectively.
Which neither do, or are likely to do.
