It still seems very unclear weather the match between France and New Zealand on the 14 November is a test match or not. World Rugby lists as France XV which suggests it's not, however the FFR refer to it as a test match.

Can anyone clarify this??

New Zealand Rugby just released live streaming details for this match and clearly listed it as All Blacks vs France XV. No way in hell are the All Blacks playing a full Test match midweek against Tier 1 opposition.

Cedate Gomes Sa will play for french barbarians. As this team is french representative, he will therefore be unavailable for Portugal...

Edit : m'y mistake. Always thought he was from Portugal, but not he is born in Guinea Bissau.

I was collecting the kick off times of next weekend and I can't find anything about Namibia v Asia Dragons.
Is it still going on? And we may consider it a caps-awarding match or it's more a sort of friendly?

veteran rugby journalist in Japan Rich freeman tweeted a couple of days ago he's heard rumours of problems in the KRFU. They were listed to play Germany, probably in the game Chile has now been listed for. I imagine the Chileans were going back to South America via Europe and possibly even already via Frankfurt given it's one of the biggest intercontinental hub airports, and the DRV was made aware of that, and made the invitation to them.

I was attempting a general 2018 calendar for italian rugby. Do we already know the fixtures for summer and autumn internationals 2018? I've seen that New Zealand will have a triple duel with France, Ireland a triple with Australia, England two or three games with South Africa, that Scotland will tour North America, but I haven't found a general schedule for june and november '18. I just know that Italy should host Georgia in the second window. Do you know something more?

Argentina: Wales (June 9), Wales (June 16) and Scotland (June 23). The first test is set for the city of Trelew really close to the Welsh settlement in Patagonia.

I'm pretty sure that Hinato posted that Japan will host Italy in June of 2018.

England already confirmed their end-of-year test: South Africa (November 3), New Zealand (November 10), Japan (November 17) and Australia (November 24).

The All Blacks also face Japan on the first week of November.

Great find. So all the top 32 teams have a game this weekend?!

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

This was actually very good by WR. Never in the history of Rugby has this ever happened. I hope WR will continue doing this. Infant, it would be good to increase it to the top 40 teams.

And they were scheduled as well but their Union messed up (financially?).
Seems like I need to change my signature ;-)
