Beach and clubs' sevens need just 1 weekend
Euro sevens could need just 1 weekend if they wanted to reduce the series to one only stage
Women's Euro XV needs 2 weekends
Men's Championships needs 1 weekend (plus play-out)
Men's Trophy needs at least 3 weekends (plus play-off, so 4)

Could we see 2021 and 2022 REC & RWCQ played back-to-back in October/November and February/March? I struggle to see all entrants being back to activity, with open borders and national leagues running by next February. It takes six different countries, three off them out of Schengen, plus clubs needing some life and games after months off. And doing RWCQ in 2022 and 2023 would be extremely late.

Guillaume Ajac is not anymore the head coach of Belgium; after six years he ends his adventure in the role

Salvatore Zandonà, the Belgium Rugby president with probable italian origins, said: "we are preparing a restart for September, but we may be spending a lot of energy without knowing where we are going". Several options have been mentioned about the rugby restart: a resumption on January 1, a stop until the development of a vaccine against Covid-19, or a white season ... "Today, we have no certainty for the future", Salvatore concludes.
