Why not play a test match?

Do something akin the the Rugby Weekend they hold in Chicago. Spain could play the Moari AB's before the AB's play France. Could even get their women's team in on it playing the womens AB's.

That's what I'm thinking.

Women's national team is mentioned in the article, men's isn't. But hey, if you've read this topic you already know promoting anything involving a Spanish national side in Catalonia isn't that straightforward.

Crazy last regular season week in Liga Heineken... Let's start with results:
Bizkaia Gernika 30 - 10 Complutense Cisneros (mid-week postponed game, Cisneros allowed Gernika to get the BP in the last action)

SilverStorm El Salvador 77 - 28 Hernani (El Salvador clinched first spot and home semis and final, that means €€€)
Ampo Ordizia 29 - 45 VRAC Quesos Entrepinares
Sanitas Alcobendas 26 - 20 Bizkaia Gernika (a ball held up on the try line was the end of the game, sending Gernika to DHB...)
UBU-Colina Clinic 32 - 29 Complutense Cisneros (amazing achievement by newly promoted team from Burgos, whereas Cisneros avoided relegation)
Barça Rugbi 11 - 17 La Vila (La Vila will face a relegation playoff while Barça reaches 6th)
Senor Independiente 21 - 34 UE Santboiana (meaningless result for two teams who have underachieved this season)

Now Valladolid teams must wait a month until semifinals, while QF games will be Alcobendas v Barça (a repeat of Copa del Rey final to be played in a fortnight) and Ordizia v UBU-Colina Clinic.
