Azerbajian should be Asia, but it's classed as Europe (politically). Israel is classed as European as well, if you watch Football (soccer) European qualifiers, you'll see Israel in them
It's all politics, even if they aren't technically Europe, geographically.
I mean, Europe ends at the Caucasus mountains (Azerbajian/Georgia area), supposedly.
My point is, what you first thought of Europe, isn't anymore, there is no actual European zone..... nowadays
Azerbaijan and Israel are both Rugby Europe members. That's what matters for the list.

I'm sure Algeria is a mistake though. Algeria competes in Africa.
There are many mistakes. Israel, Azerbaijan, Guatemala, Solomon Islands, Algeria, all in the wrong continent if continents = rugby federations.
Netherlands XV got an exceptional status from the dutch governant to keep training during the recently announced lock down (where all other amature sport above 18 got canceled for 4 weeks). With club completion and trainings canceled, this might actually mean they can arrive well prepared for the promotion game the 14th of November.

REC final round apparently suspended by Rugby Europe
Sad but right, I suppose. The pandemic is again hitting hard, here in Europe. In some italian regions the experts say that the contagion is "out of control" (it means that they can't figure out anymore an approximated number of the infected people) and three clubs of rugby Top10 already recorded covid19 cases, despite just two games were played so far

So far no confirmations from the rugby media of the other european nations. Could the spanish post be a wrong one? Hard to believe, but let's hope it
Meanwhile RE changed the result of Poland v Ukraine from 0-0 to 0-25, so this is the final Trophy chart of the season 19/20
http://rugby.org.ua/upload/photos/12210 ... 9968_n.jpg
And this, according to the Polish federation website, should be the autumnal Trophy calendar
2020-10-24: Lithuania v Ukraine
2020-10-31: Ukraine v Poland
2020-11-21: Germany v Switzerland
2020-11-28: Poland v Switzerland

RUGBY EUROPE ANNOUNCES THE SUSPENSION OF ALL MATCHES PLANNED IN 2020
Is this going to be all league matches only? Theres some RE friendlies that would be great to see!
Russia v Romania is off as well this weekend. Rugger claims it's because Romania has several COVID cases https://rugger.info/news/36728
Sorry to quote myself, but I can't see REC being played as planned in February and March...

What are the odds of no outbreaks among six teams travelling all over Europe and coming back and forth from their clubs for 7 weeks? Is Rugby Europe working on alternative scenarios and formats if everything goes wrong?
OK, I talk from the country in worse shape (and I've suffered the direct consequences) and I get others shouldn't care about our issues, but it would sound wise to me if home and away games between the same teams were played in consecutive weekends over the next two years to reduce greatly the risks, for example.
