In the Netherlands they've been experimenting with blind referees.

Bulgaria large group for England Deaf clash. There's also an italian sounding forward (Andrea-Franco Candela) but from some search on the web he seems 100% bulgarian. The head coach is from Mauriac, a little town on central France

Strange people, these BUL

1) healthy guys play the Deaf
2) all based at home but still append BUL to club affiliations

++ Once a GEO ref officiated them and was amazed:

BUL played true 8-men rugby = ball NEVER went past 8 from scrum

I've done the 2016-2018 circle of parity for international teams. 29 in total, there may be a way to get more in, but I doubt it. I'm particularly proud of finding a way to get Korea in there. https://twitter.com/BTCBlurandski/statu ... 0659367937

I have just seen that World Rugby is now using the name Czechia for Czech Republic: https://www.worldrugby.org/fixtures

Cool. I saw that the Czechs want to be called Czechia.

An interesting coincidence happened on the weekend in the Top 14 during the game between Perpignan and Grenoble.
It was probably the first time that two active Cook Islands internationals faced off in the highest french pro league.
Steven Setephano captained Grenoble, whereas Shahn Eru started as Lock for Perpignan.
Both have got capped for the small island nation during RWC qualifying. Setephano earned his sole cap in Fiji in 2013, while Eru earned his two caps this year against Hong Kong.

What I understood is they will start out in a new pro 7s comp then look to XVs. They seem to be open to everything including Super Rugby.

BEST momment in the history of Brazilian rugby. Watch the video! https://www.instagram.com/p/BoIeZ8En3eT ... taldorugby

It is Brazilian Rugby Championship "Super 16" quarter finals, not a random match. The ambulance driver did that! And the supporters are cheering for the ambulance in the end of the video

Monaco could try to nationalize a few sevens players and climb up to the World Series.

I doubt this is realistic. It should be really hard to live in the country itself for 5 years (to become eligible) because of the cost of living. Also Monaco apparently has one of the strictest nationality laws worldwide. In addition I doubt that a lot of people (or their parents, or their grand-parents) are actually born in Monaco itself who would be candidates for the rugby national team.

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.

So what happened to Sri Lanka and PNG?

Sri Lanka was the chairman crying around (if I remember right) but PNG? What happened to Cameroon and Venezuela? Greece is suspended, right?
