agree.Good suggestion in the Dom Post this morning. Take the teams that finish 3/4 in the group stages and let them have their own knock-out "Shield" competition. You've brought these smaller teams all the way over here, why not? Reckon you'd get a full house for a Shield final.
Would give the little teams a bit more to play for in the last couple of round robin games. 5th placed team goes home.
someone suggested that in The Telegraph aswell.
