About the Russian mixed team? That was a comment from one of the users on rugger.info I took it as a joke. Hopefully STMKY did too.

Too late. I have already released the rumour. Let's see how far it gets.

How did Russia vote in the World Rugby election?

Oh yeah, they don't have one.

Six Nations should give Canada a call.

I'm telling you, don't trust what he wrotes. He knows nothing. Even Vova made it clear. The guy invents shit. Wait for proper sources always.

Georgia replacing Japan is nothing more than speculation. But at least they exist, unlike Amur Tigers.

I have a question, has Japan allowed any sort of rugby training or playing to start back up since the first stopping of playing back in March? Also for the national team is most of the coaching team in New Zealand?

it is a transition. Those 25 teams will fight to decide who will be the 8 teams in the 2022 new top division and the other 8 or 9 in the 2nd division.

I wonder how many will start signing overseas talent like crazy to ensure that they’re in the top division come 2022.

What about 2021 Japan vs France tests? Will they happen in July? There were talks about such tour in 2019.

I thought France was going to tour Japan on a two match tour as well.
However earlier this month America’s rugby news said in a report that France will travel to Australia in for a 3 match tour. http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2020/1 ... mber-2021/

The tour in Japan was for 2020 I guess, not 21.

That was planned for 2020, here is the cancellation news : https://www.ouest-france.fr/sport/rugby ... jo-6678640

There should have played in 2020 (JRFU contacted France, but forget the olympics in Tokyo :lol: ), but due to the olympics it was delayed in 2021. Considering the olympics are in 2021, that won't happen neither I guess ?

I don’t think it happens. Leaving Australia without T1 opposition would be unprecedented. The other teams are already taken: England (North America), Wales (Argentina), Scotland (Eastern Europe), Italy (New Zealand) and Ireland (Pacific Islands).

Japan is scheduled to face the Lions in Murrayfield so they might chose to stay in Europe. As vino said, the window coincides with the Olympics. There was a rumor that they could partake in a mini-tournament with Scotland, Georgia and Romania but it probably won’t happen with some REC games now scheduled for July. Russia, Spain and Portugal should give them a call. Or maybe North America.

It doesn't concide. The Olympics start on July 23rd. Japan will face the Lions in Europe on June 26th. July 3rd, 10th and 17th are free. Considering the travel from Europe to Japan, 10th and 17th are perfect. They don't need to play in Tokyo. They could play in other big rich cities like Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya (Toyota)... Cities that won't even host Olympic football (football venues are Tokyo, Saitama, Yokohama, Kashima and Sendai).

But I agree with you the question is: what about Australia? Well, if the French think on their $ interests, maybe Japan is a better option. Times changed.

It doesn’t work that way. All T1 internationals are set until 2030. France can’t ditch Australia to tour Japan.

Well if Japan doesn’t end up hosting anyone because of the Olympics, they could potentially play in South Africa. SARU has requested to play 3 to 4 test matches before taking on the B&I Lions, and as mentioned July 3rd, 10th, and 17th are open.

But who said France is supposed to visit Australia? I can't find any source. I know there is the 2020-32 agreement, but where is the list for us to check?

It is common sense though. When was the last time one of the SH nations didn't host T1 opposition? You have to go back to the 90s.

Yeah, this is a good shout. That would be great for both parties. The rumored friendlies were Barbarians and a weakened Argentina which are kind of underwhelming > https://www.thesouthafrican.com/sport/r ... -2021-but/

Great, thanks. I was only asking since L'Equipe published that.
