Olivier, last week Goia and Fuster were supposed to enter the squad. Now they seem to be gone. I'm just informing, because I've seen analysis of the team in Americas Rugby News and some other Canadian website that took the list from two weeks ago and that's not the team they're going to face.

I may be overcautious, but our guys aren't. Santiago Santos and Jaime Nava took part in a press conference to present Generali sponsorship and basically they aren't even thinking about play-off or repechage. They target playing the inaugural game of 2019 RWC just because of the huge media coup it would mean for Spanish rugby. Yeah, that Europe 1 spot. What strikes me is that Santos says both games against Russia and Romania will be decided by few points... and that means missing bonus points, which would favor Romania's chances :roll:

Well, and Nava even said they are looking at ways of how to reach quarterfinals. Yes, this comes from the captain of a team that has only qualified once for a RWC and left it tryless. If we dream, we dream big.

Yeah, if we don't enter your brawls there's no way we reach a RWC.
