There are seven italian players in Stade Rennais (or six; I don't know if Awa Coulibaly -now member of the club's board- is still playing). Definitively I cheer for this team

So Rennes v Lille is fast becoming Italy v Scotland...

Bayonne hired a couple of Spanish players too this Summer, Saioa Jaurena and Maitane Salinas. I believe their head coach Jean-Michel Gonzalez went to Dublin and talked to a few players more there.

Judging from the link Canalina posted in Men's Rugby forum, Rugby Europe has scaled back plans for IV Nations tournament, just morphing into its traditional European Championship. It's going to be held in Belgium for just ten days and a Trophy competition is to be confirmed: http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/sites/default ... 1017_0.pdf

Doesn't seem like a huge improvement, to be honest.

2017-18 Liga Iberdrola guide from FER. It includes most nationalities from players, with some exotic ones (three from Venezuela, but Romania, Poland, Hungary or Chile are represented as well). For Canalina, there are three Italians if I counted well:

The South African team is referring to itself as SA Select not South Africa. They will play 2 matches against the England Academy as well - on 18th and 22nd October. http://www.sarugby.co.za/article.aspx?c ... id=4149524

Brett Gosper (on Twitter):
World Rugby has approved the match Czech Republic v France Militaire (Women’s) October 21, 2017. Markets Stadium

What this means? I thought World Rugby may approve just full test matches. To say it better, I thought that World Rugby's approval meant: "ok, we award the status of full international test match to that game". But for a match against a military team what the World Rugby approval means?

Final time: 10-39 (two tries to seven, I think)
