Included in the squad announcement of the USA team for their Autumn tour:-

Continuing on the first-ever theme, November 18th will mark the first time the United States and German National Rugby team have played one another. As part of a home-and-away series, the Eagles will play host on US soil in June.

Would be good for Germany to get another test match in June whilst over their, against Canada preferably. If not maybe Uruguay would be a good test to get.

Well, Germany shouldn't make too many plans for next June just in case they surprise everybody in REC 2018 and end up in RWC repechage process.

Cross border friendlies (around February March sometime I guess) for Montenegro against Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina arranged:-

Crnogorsku ragbi reprezentaciju na proljeće očekuje takmičenje i u Evropskom kupu nacija. U prvoj utakmici crnogorski „vukovi” biće domaćini Bugarskoj 14. aprila, a narednu utakmici igraće protiv Turske u Ankari 28. aprila. "Novom selektoru Danilu Ćeraniću pomoći se bivši selektor, francuski trener Erik Merkadie, koji je postao direktor za razvoj ragbija u Crnoj Gori kao i francuski stručnjak Didije Alase koji ostaje trener linije", kazao je Milović. Pripreme crnogorske reprezentacije počinju od 14. januara, a planirano je više prijateljskih utakmica sa Srbijom, Bosnom i Hercegovinom, kao i Hrvatskom.

Shameless attempted to divert criticism by claiming it will be for the Doddie Weir trophy too.

Doesn’t Scotland playing Wales in November just make the case for how you can make promotion and relegation work in the 6N? Say Scotland gets relegated, there’s nothing stoping them from playing England, Wales, Ireland and France the following year in November. That would make up a lot of income they would otherwise lose.
