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.

To be honest Sudamérica Rugby right now would criticise Bill Beaumont even for the way he likes to drink his five o'clock tea.

Okay, it is not in the interest of anyone in South America that this eligibility law gets extended for another year. So off course they criticize it. if they wouldn't say a word, they wouldn't do their job right.

Have we all gone now to Trump-like childish political discussions?

So much said, I think they did the right thing to extend it - especially as at least myself wasn't aware that the eligibility had a limit until December 31st., which actually does run out. I always assumed, that it wouldn't matter when you play for the national team once you fullfilled those three years.

So a correct decision by World Rugby and also a correct thing of SA to make sure, that the next step isn't to totally scrap the 5-years-rule in silence.

Yes, it is annoying.

For Brazil the delay is good, there are two Argentines here that will benefit.

I'm not sure if one year is the right thing, but six months probably would be.

Eligibility rule set back for another year. I wasn't aware that you actually needed to represent a Union until the end of 2020 to make the switch (if you had finished the three years of residency in 2020). Now it is 2021, which means that German Anton Segner, would now qualify for New Zealand in 2021 instead of 2023.

Don't think it would make any difference for Segner. He was still at school in 2019 and not not living at his family home, his qualifying period wouldn't start until end of 2019.

He permanently moved to NZ in January 2018. At least that's what he's saying and what probably the All Blacks think. Otherwise I doubt he would be part of their U20 practice squad, if he would only be eligible in 2024. But yeah, the family home is indeed another interesting eligibility (confusion) point.
