Rugby Europe seems more "aggressive" than the usual on presenting the next two games, with already three dedicated posts on the socials

Samoa v Tonga confirmed for Nov 14 in Auckland, at 14.05 (3.05 AM in Central Europe). That ".05" suggests that the game could be televised.
It will be a three games program: NZ Police v NZ Army (or something like that, I don't recall perfectly) as opener, then Samoa v Tonga and, as closing event, Black Ferns v NZ Barbarians

Band 2 – France, Australia, USA
Band 3 – Wales, Europe 1, South Africa
Band 4 – Asia 1, Fiji, Final Qualifier winner

I suppose that the risk to have games decided by the world ranking has become not so tiny, now: the sanitary situation promises to remain critical for the whole winter, in Europe, and if they have to wait april for the Euro Championship, with the Euro qualifiers and the intercontinental repechage still to be played, they risk to go out of time
