The Oceania Cup 2020, to be held in Papua New Guinea, has been cancelled.
Usually the Oceania Cup was hosted just in odd years, but I think to remember that they decided to return to a yearly Oceania Cup. No luck for this first attempt.

The women's World Cup repechage, the women's Oceania Championship and the men's and women's Oceania 7s Championships are still in the 2020 program, at least as vague hope

"Why World Rugby must suspend Fiji"

I just wonder why the two players were out of prison few time after having been condemned to years of jail

The same players' organization that writes this news denounced in the past days the scarcity of transparency and democracy in the Fiji, Samoa and Tonga federations

So the Australian and New Zealand rugby unions are discussion a Trans-Tasman Super Rugby.

Apparently there are discussing between having 8 and 10 teams.

New Zealand wants to keep their 5 teams and add a Pacific team.

So the 8-team option would mean that Australia would have just 2 teams. I don't think it's feasible.
