Great! Otherwise how t2 countries could progress? Wish to see Georgia playing Maori ABs.

The November 2017 matches versus Georgia, Fiji and Spain seem more reasonable rivals.

I have three doubts
- when and where the south american Mayor B will be played
- when and where (Costa Rica ?) the south american Mayor C will be played

Not sure about the dates, but the Mayor C is always in December and it was confirmed to be hosted by Costa Rica.

I don't know about the Mayor B but it will be soon because Colombia has just anounced the team for a camp. However, the info about venue and dates is missing. My guess: it would be in Venezuela, but had to be cancelled. Ecuador is the only country that has never hosted it: maybe now? I hope so. They've never hosted even the Mayor C.

Kenya are to play Hong Kong on the 26th after the elections. Hopefully, we will have a peaceful election after the incumbent concedes defeat and everything goes back to normal. Welcome to Kenya, Hong Kong. #HakunaMatata

Chile will participate in the next Hong Kong Cup of Nations. Nice boost for them after missing the June window.

Kenya has also confirmed participation for the November Hong Kong tournament. This is the first time the Kenya Simbas get to play in the November test window.

Umm, actually they played in the forerunner of the Cup of Nations, The Emirates Cup, played in Dubai, also at that period of the year, twice I think.

EDIT: On second thoughts maybe that was the Sables, not the Simbas? Now my memory is getting hazy! Someone put me out of my misery!

Kenya played in the 2011 cup of nations, which took place in December of that year. Zimbabwe have taken part in all of the subsequent editions of that competition.

Oh yeah, my bad. The Simbas participated so long ago that I almost forgot. We played Brazil and Hong Kong in 2011, when it was still being called the Emirates cup. Beat Brazil, and lost the final to Hong Kong narrowly with a point. But ever since 2011, we have only been participating in the June Window. Kudos to WR for granting us November tests. I hope they will put us in their long term plans for both June and November tests. Thanks WR.

Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can.

LE: doesn't make any sense, if they wanna send an Asian side send HK which is 10 places up...SK is not even close of Japan 2nds or 3rds

another LE: If they play Germany on 11th November than for next dates Romania and Georgia already have confirmed matches :| o_O

Let's see if World Rugby confirms Brazil and Korea European tours soon, because they seem a bit of a mess as for now. For example FER has provisionally scheduled our game against Brazil the very same day Brazil is expected to play Germany. If Germany v Korea and Germany v Brazil switch dates, then Spain v Brazil and Romania v Korea on 25 would make more sense... if Romania playing Korea has any, of course.

Anyway, Hinato's article in French says Korea could play these games against Georgia and Romania in early November. I imagine local based teams or A sides would be enough for both of them.

Last month the Namibia Rugby Union had announced they will be playing the invitational team Pacific Dragons on November 4th and play two tests against Uruguay on November 18th and 25th of November.

That is a great quality test for both sides. Far more sensible than the Romania vs Brazil match earlier in the year.

Great. I always welcome international test matches. No matter who is a rival.

The issue is a date. Georgia already scheduled 3 test games. However I do not see any problem if it takes place before or after those games, even in December.

So South Korea basically cancelled the game with Germany to play Romania and Georgia. Let's call it brave.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
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.

Meantime, the Asian Rugby site does not say the Germany vs. South Korea (November 11) is cancelled. How do you know that?

Because Germany v Brazil is now scheduled that day and because German sites published South Korea had cancelled it.
