While he remains eligible to represent the Eagles, Salanoa will be qualified to play for Ireland in September on three-year residency. Assuming he is not selected before January 1, he would then be required to wait until September 2022 to play for Ireland under the new five-year criteria.

I don't believe that is accurate. He will continue to remain eligible in the interim period, surely?

If he stays in Ireland, he stays illegible once he has that three years on his belt.
World Rugby’s Regulation 8 (3)
"They have lived in the country for 36 consecutive months (three years) to qualify on residency immediately before playing."

If he leaves for longer than that infamous 6 or 8 weeks per year, he's not eligible any more and the then 5 years count starts.
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.

USA vs South Africa
Warm up for the Springboks. The match will be played either in South Africa or Britain depending on where the lions tour takes place.

Also USA vs England July 11th
Two T1 opponents this summer for the Eagles, let’s go!

The match will not be played in South Africa, that is certain.

The WalesOnline article seems to suggest they would play the Lions, in lieu of one of the super rugby franchise tour games. But I guess Gold is a more reliable source!

T1 tests are great and all but it's really hard to tell at this stage just whether the Eagles can actually make a game out of these.

It’s tough to say with over a year since our last test match. Our only hope is that MLR will whip players into game shape since the game is taking place immediately after the season (actually during the playoffs if I’m not mistaken).

Before beating Scotland, we had played Italy pretty often. We had gotten close to beating Italy several times, so kinda like Georgia in that regard. We don't get Tier 1 Test matches often and if we do it's usually Italy or Scotland, whom we've come close to beating a few times. England and RSA are a completely different matter.

According SArugbyMag, the Springboks and British and Irish Lions will tour in the UK. I think most of us saw that coming. The schedule has been leaked. USA will play the Springboks on June 27th at the Tottenham Hotspurs stadium and a week later will play the B&I Lions at St. James Park. Also Japan already scheduled to play the Lions will also play the Springboks on July 9th.

Again according to the article this is leaked information so we will have to wait and see if it is true or not. Also the leaked schedule picture on the website is blurry but it does show the full schedule of the tour dates and venues.

Yep, doubt theyll give Lions caps for it though.
