That however did not happen. I don't know why. If it was the Dutch union who objected, was it just a romour or were they not up to it?

I think that you mean Sparta Werlte https://www.facebook.com/rugbysvspartawerlte/ if I got that right, they play as a part of Emmen in the Dutch 4th divison North-East, apparently there are even some gams played on German soil:

14:00 Rugby SV Sparta Werlte, 49757 Werlte, Duitsland RC Emmen 1 RC Groningen 3 22 - 26 ( https://www.erugby.nl/pub/nrb/2019-2020 ... /index.htm )

It is a small town with 17k inhabitants.
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.
