I've been seeing a few suggestions on Scottish rugby pages over the last couple of weeks that Spain are being considered as an alternative destination for Scotland's summer tour (originally planned for eastern Europe), due to concerns that Romania aren't strong enough opposition. Has there been any suggestion of this in Spain, or is it just speculation from Scotland fans? (I would think it unlikely, given Spain are already likely to be busy with Rugby Europe Championship games, and the re-arranged Classic All Blacks game, assuming it is still on?)

There was some suggestion on the matter when 2021 REC fixtures were released and a Spanish staff member said recently something odd about a possible interesting test match in July, but I don't think there is anything set in stone and rather than tied to Romania's form (it wouldn't be too different to Spain's in July, to be honest), I'd say it depends on where Lions tour takes place and whether the rest of 6 Nations sides can tour as planned or stay in Europe. I'd welcome some links anyway ;)

Classic All Blacks is scheduled for May but everybody knows it won't happen then so promoter will have to find an alternative date, probably in Autumn.

Not too good news about domestic championship. Barça and Alcobendas managed to play their postponed game last weekend (30-32 win for Alcobendas) but Barça has now positive COVID cases and has had to postpone their match against VRAC this weekend and who knows when will this one be played...

This is how standings look right now...

First time in a long while that I've actually been able to watch some of the games you've posted. I quite enjoyed. The overall standard seems pretty good. Hopefully they can continue to progress and perhaps achieve the professionalism targets in the near-ish future.

División de Honor B regular season is over and in two weeks time promotion play-off will start:
- La Vila (1) v Pasek Belenos Avilés (8)
- CAU Valencia (4) v Hernani (5)
- Pozuelo Rugby Union (3) v Unión Rugby Almería (6)
- Bizkaia Gernika (2) v Fénix Zaragoza (7)

Given how tight schedule is due to COVID this season, play-offs will be played with a single game per round hosted by the higher ranked seed instead of the traditional home and away format. La Vila and Gernika are big favorites.
