Those news coming from Japan seem pretty exciting. I personally don´t follow the league that much as I should, but I get a lot of highlights now in social media and I think I should take a closer look at it. The Brave Blossoms did play some electric Rugby at the RWC, so that talent has to flourish somewhere, also they seem to have brought more world talent than ever.

Integrating the Sunwolves to their own League re-structuring seems to be a good / strong plan. I would have thought GRR could have been another option, but this one makes a lot more sense in the long run.

Not that I want to mix threads, but I have the feeling that although a great idea, GRR has lost a bit of steam with that "showcase" kick off. Western Force thrashed all the other sides which showed that are way below the standard fans would like to see. Japan clearly has no interest in GRR now, the Asian Pacific Dragons aren´t participating (at least in 2020) Getting a Korean franchise might be good to add more teams but Force are still a big shark in a fish bowl.

Hyundai Glovis veut devenir une franchise pro et l'intégrer. La Corée du sud est dans les plans du Global Rapid Rugby.


Has there been any official about this?


Acredito que não.



25 Mannschaften? Ist das wirklich realistisch? Wo kommen die plötzlich her?


Se considerarmos que são 2 divisões, talvez. Mesmo assim, é um número muito grande.

Das könnte sein. Ich musste gerade etwas schmunzeln, weil mein google-Übersetzer noch auf Rumänisch eingestellt war und das eine bessere Übersetzung ergeben hat als Portugiesisch-Deutsch. Grundsätzlich aber überraschend, wieviel ich auch so schon verstanden hatte.
Ich mag den Thread :D

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.

There will be a professional Japanese league next season, and the Sunwolves have everything; a great team, coaches, stadium, passionate fans, a name, kit, identity. They should continue to exist, in the Japanese pro league. If they keep this group of players they could win it.

Sounds like that’s the plan. Is this league going to have more Japanese representation than before? I assume yes.

More good crowds in Top League this weekend. There were a couple of double headers that drew crowds of around 20,000.

Through five rounds the average attendance is over 11,000. Nearly double what it was last year.
