This happened in 2012. Cordoba didn’t honor their part of the contract and informed the UAR only weeks before the test. It doesn’t seem to be an issue anymore as they got the Scotland test in 2014.

It is a tender process. Cordoba has to pay something to win the bid. They always express interest but never make an actual offer.

Some province governments invest public funds in attracting sports events. Others don't.

This is a really weird thing to say lad. Your nationality has no bearing on you arguing with strangers on the internet.

O'shea is fine he wouldn't be going anywhere. You are downplaying Brunnel slightly he had wins against two wins against Scotland (including one in Scotland) and one win against both Ireland and France. For the Italian side at the time that's not a bad run. He was also an assistant coach during the French dominance in the mid 2000s. Noves was floundering trying something fresh in time for the RWC isn't a bad plan, probably wont change things overall but the French team had by all accounts giving up on Noves.

Tier 2 tentative schedule for June:
Samoa: Playoff
Fiji: Georgia, Romania, Tonga
Tonga: Romania, Georgia, Fiji
Japan: Italy x2, Georgia
Georgia: Fiji, Tonga, Japan
Romania: Tonga, Fiji
Canada: Scotland
USA: European side, Scotland
Uruguay: Nations Cup
Spain: Playoff / Nations Cup / North America
Russia: Playoff / Nations Cup / North America

- Italy is the only Tier 1 with an opening on June 23. Africa’s Gold Cup starts on June 16 so I’m not considering Namibia, Zimbabwe or Kenia. I’m also assuming that Romania is Europe 2 (sorry Armchair, it was easier this way).
- As posted in the USA thread, the Eagles booked a match in Denver for June 9. “The matchup will be determined this March, after the next round of European Qualification for Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan”. TheStroBro says it’s not Germany due to the Wild civil war. There could be an opening for whoever misses out the playoff in Europe.
- Victor posted above that Brazil is in talks with Belgium and Portugal. I wouldn’t get my hopes up for any additional games in South America (Chile/Colombia)
- No idea about the Nations Cup. Maybe they shrink it to four teams because I can’t see anybody outside of Uruguay, Argentina XV, Italia Emergenti and one of Spain/Russia/Germany. Hong Kong seems farfetched. They could revive the Wolfhounds or the SA Presidents.
