- There will be a third rugby match in Spain in a football stadium this year, in addition to Classic All Blacks game at Wanda Metropolitano and Cup final in Zamora. Santander derby will be relocated to Torrelavega's Malecón stadium where Spain v Chile was played back in 2015, next February 29th:

- Cup final tickets went on sale yesterday. A bit expensive to my taste, between 15 and 50€ for adults. They sold 500 the first day:

- Classic All Blacks match promoters released new tickets, but 15€ ones are yet to be seen...

Jordi Jorba tore his ACL last Sunday against Georgia. It's in his healthy knee, last time he lost more than a year... In theory he won't be back in a rugby pitch until at least September.

Interesting squad. Seems stronger than what the Oaks will be able to field... as always, it will come down to the rugby played on the day, of course; but at least is good to see that Spain is able to get many foreign based players for this REC; if they keep it like this for the next couple of years then the RWC 2023 won´t be an impossible dream to have.

We've never won in Romania. I remain skeptical.
