Rugby Europe International Championships 2020-2021

Postby dwpeate » Tue, 20 Oct 2020, 09:22

Well, we were supposed to be welcoming the first game of the RET competition for this season this very weekend, but of course we now have to wait a bit further.
Nevertheless, here's a new thread for all things 20-21 in all REIC.

It looks like Azerbaijan will be out of the competition for a while (their last year was 2013). They published a development plan for 2020-2026 and to return to RE compeitions is listed as a long term goal http://en.rugby.az/index.php?newsid=41 Anyway, good to know they are working with the Georgian Rugby Union.

Morariu said in this talk (min 37) today that Rugby Europe is working on three scenarios for next year and expects to take a decision by mid-December:

I've see just some minutes of the video (interesting idea, a public round table with the presidents of Rugby Afrique, Rugby Europe, Sudamerica Rugby and Asia Rugby) and I've heard Morariu talking also about a development program alongside RWC 2023, organized by FFR and Rugby Europe and to which Morariu invited also Babbou and his Rugby Afrique ("thank you, very appreciated", the answer is)
I don't know which kind of development program it is, anyway; the video is too long to watch it all :)

They didn't say much, apart from explaining it was similar to the agreement reached with England for 2015. At that time each European nation was tied to an England county with freedom to develop their own projects.

Spain for example was tied to Northumberland and IIRC there we're referee exchanges, RFU helped to structure our young players path within FER and even a couple of years after RWC our women's national team played a friendly game there.

Anyway I like the idea of the continental presidents discussing together publicly. In the section of the video that I watched they didn't say too much, they were quite generic and maybe it can't be different, but ideally it's a good concept.
All the four presidents gave me a good feeling, they seem good persons
