Malta 12,700 players on a population of 469,000 :)

Proportionally, it's like Italy had 1 million and 625,000 players
Probably they are kids playing sometime rugby at school

WHY this report is un-download-able?

Do WR really afraid of possibility that
someone would print full-color copies of it
and gain money by selling instead of them?

Is the report still snatch-able to hackers alike?

It seems you may now choose between all the RWC jerseys when playing "Animal Crossing". But I'm not sure if it's an official thing, or a private thing, or if every player may offer to the other players the jerseys he created. Too old for this...

A reddit user started designing the jerseys and allowed other forum users to request which jerseys were designed. This activity was picked up by World Rugby as a bit of good PR. In the game anyone can design clothing and offer it to others as a download.

So the problem is that these 5 criteria don't exist and were never communicated to the championship clubs.

Winning the World Cup would have brought the liquidators in.

Stopped reading there, the author of that piece is a total idiot.

Thank you

In Japan there was a tv series (ten episodes) also concerning a rugby team.

Title: "No Side Manager" (sometime also translated "No side game")
ノーサイト・ゲーム

Broadcast date: July 7 - September 15, 2019

Plot: Adapted from a novel by Jun Ikeido, the story follows the travails of a company man once touted as an elite executive candidate who falters when he voices opposition to his superiors over an acquisition, and is exiled to general affairs manager at a branch factory. Adding insult to injury, he is also ordered to serve as general manager of the plant’s failing rugby team, the Tokiwa Motors “Astros”, which once basked in glory but has since sunk to perennial cellar dweller. Hoping to resuscitate his own future along with that of a weak rugby team on the verge of disbandment, the embattled company man stakes pride and fortune on fulfilling two missions, putting all he’s got into work and sports in this inspirational human drama.

And a trailer

Proportionally, it's like Italy had 1 million and 625,000 players
Probably they are kids playing sometime rugby at school


Malta are ranked pretty highly for a small country. A mini tournament in Malta with Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria would be interesting.

Yeah. Or they keep playing in their competitive and open Rugby Europe tournaments, where they always can compete with teams around their level every year.
They are basically ranked so high, because Europe is the only continent to offer a 4-level-yearly-competition under its closed shop above.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
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.

Being a former British Empire nation helps as well. Given the low level of rugby outside 13/14 nations in Europe smaller nations with more of a rugby tradition can keep themselves surprisingly high. IIRC a couple of MEPs are fairly regular supporters of the national team.
