Mmm, 4N put Italy v Uruguay on nov 14, Scorpion put it on nov 21. Which is the correct date?
I knew that the three Italy's games should be vs Australia, South Africa and Uruguay, but no certainties about.
And I had read somewhere that the match versus Uruguay should be in Montevideo, but still not sure confirmation

PS: anyway Scorpion thanks for the excel schedule. It would be great if you was able to update gradually it

Keep seeing this Wales schedule but not seen anything official announced. Anyone got a source other than wiki?

Nations Cup in July with Uruguay, Russia, Spain and Romania. Sounds very interesting… I think.

Wikipedia has Italy vs Uruguay on 14 November and Uruguay vs Samoa on 21 November.
Either way, there are still 2 TBC tier 1 vs tier 2 matches. One for England, which I can only guess will be Fiji or Tonga. There isn't really any other tier 2 team strong enough to play that fixture. The other TBC match will involve Italy.

This is a good fixture list, but I also think it's a bit of a con for tier 2. There may be more tier 1 vs tier 2 fixtures, but a lot of those fixtures involve Japan who are effectively elevated to tier 1 status. For Pacific Islands there seems to be less fixtures than usual, not more.

Spain vs Samoa would be a good fixture.

Italy should play Georgia or Tonga to earn some rankings points.

Italy plays Australia on November 21. The rumored Uruguay match should be on the 14. Also, haven't seen anything regarding that France - Japan game outside of the release window.

Almost certainly. Japan will be in Ireland. Fiji are touring. And the only other tier 2 team that is good enough to play England at Twickenham is Tonga, and they don't seem to be touring at all.

Is England v Georgia not still a live prospect? I've been hearing that according to San Fran it should be happening.

Still no news from South America Rugby regarding Conference B and C tournaments not even on their calendar for the year.

A bit more here about the All Blacks XV playing Fiji. That game will be played in Canada, and All Blacks XV will play 2 other tests. All Blacks XV is New Zealand's 2nd XV and will become a regular thing, like Argentina XV.
