It's good format that's widely played and followed and is way less taxing on the body. You can play a full tournament in the space of a weekend without and bother. Having a second rugby format wouldn't be best.
If you want to add another sport I think Cricket really has to be there. Test is obviously out of the question but Twenty20 would be a great addition. Loads of support for it and more nations can compete in that format, really should be there soon.
Yeah that's the main problem with it, but I'd like to see the All Blacks and Springboks going at it at the Olympics.
Sevens could also be more attractive for casual viewers.
