It's commercial fanpage, not federation's. It should be: https://www.facebook.com/pzrugby/ (1)

A disappointing thing is the lack of chinese rugby on the net. Apparently they're not on facebook and they have a twitter account but not updated since two years ago (https://twitter.com/crfachinarugby).
There's a quite updated China Rugby Association website, but it's all in chinese language and apparently it purposes mostly bureaucratic communications

Both pages are blocked in China. So if they would be on them, it would be just the jolly good expat run about we see in many countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Websites_ ... land_China
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.

Incredible, I didn't know they blocked so many sites. Is it not a powerful gap for their commercial affairs? I mean, searching on google is an helpful tool for so many jobs; maybe they've their own google, but I suspect it must be super-censored too

PS: also the page of China Rugby Football Association on weibo is no more existing http://www.weibo.com/chinarfu

In search of minor news I opened all the website links reported on page 1 of this discussion and it's curios to see how many of them are now disappeared (I'd say 40% of them) and how many are not updated since long time ago (I'd say an other 30%).
Several ones stopped to be cured in the years between 2010 and 2013, one is frozen in year 2003. A good number is stuck in 2019 but maybe that's just a coronavirus pause. Some links bring you now to chinese non-rugby on line shops.
Just to say.
A note of merit to Portal do Rugby, one of the very few private rugby news websites hosted by a not-T1 nation and regularly and consistently updated www.portaldorugby.com.br
All in all I haven't found interesting news, a part the fact that Canada Rugby made a deal with italian wearing company Macron (it's based in my region!) and the fact that in Ukraine the clubs (or at least one: RC Olimp) already restarted to train in group and with contacts http://rugby.org.ua/news/5112

maodemestre isn't exactly abandoned, only stopped a bit, but they will probably do more coverage next season :) Portugal also has the multisports fairplay.pt, partner of portaldorugby. But fairplay isn't rugby-only. We are trying to have more Brazil-Portugal links, it is important for both sides.

Chile has http://www.rugbychile.cl and http://www.rugbiers.cl, private websites as well.

Spain has many good private websites too, Armchair can list for us.
