To be clear, they can still play as Tonga XIII like they did last year until they get their board issues sorted out.

The Euro championship and Euro U19 have been postponed to next year/s

The Euro champ'ship B, C, D and U19 will be played in 2021, while the Euro championship A will return just in 2022 because next year there's the World Cup.
In 2022 the Euro A will be widened to eight teams: the current six ones (Fra, Wal, Ire, Sco, Ita, Spa) plus England and the winner of the Euro B

Looks like Toronto Wolfpack is in a bit of trouble. Despite them having a billionaire owner to had to resort to asking other clubs for a loan. Would be nice to see them go bust.

Wonderful news. Hopefully they are dead now along with their Ottawa and NY expansion efforts.

Watched it live as two rugby friends of mine were playing for Germany. Interesting that they scrapped the scrums.
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.

Toronto Wolfpack denied. Superleague clubs have voted to not let them back in. I guess that is the end of that.

Bradford Bulls have thrown their hat in the ring for the vacant Super League place.

Newcastle Thunder also have Super League ambitions, this seems to be longer term goal. Newcastle Thunder is owned by Newcastle Falcons. It's interesting that the owner feels he can grow both codes of rugby rather than seeing them as rival codes.

I have a couple of questions for consideration.

Who will be the team to replace Toronto Wolfpack in the Super League?

Should Catalan Dragons now leave Super League and France set up their own professional league league? This is similar to the future of Italian rugby question. Could France sustain its own professional league? And then meet its old English rivals in a European competition.

Answer for France : no. RL is ultra minor. If you look to our first league, the clubs are mostly villages around Perpignan. Nobody cares about RL outside of there, and a bit around Avignon. And Toulouse is working correctly, even if that will remain minor considering all the sports there are there.

And for me, nobody in France want to see dragons living superleague for a minor pro league here.

Thanks Vino. Then they must stay in Super League. Although this does seem a bit one sided. Could we put a basketball team in your Pro league please? That would be awesome.
