Yes, when all our governments agree. So maybe in 2050. They were going to host the footbal euros. Now they lost that...

The pitch is shit, apart from that the stadium is perfect.

"Perfect" is a bit of an overstatement... don´t get me wrong, the atmosphere is nice, the family friendly breeze, but as NedRugby said, you buy a seated ticket and then you are sent inside to find your own way hoping to get one... And the pitch, FFS...

Just looking back at some of my old stats. Billi (Age 32), Verschelden (34), Massimi (35) and Alan Williams (32) played for Belgium together back in 2006. At that time Billi was 19 and Williams 18. They have all been around a long time.

With the exception to Charles Reynaert (Valence Romans in Pro D2) who is coming back from a serious injury and who prefers to play with its club to regains its starting spot, Guillaume Piron centre for Blagnac, also coming back from a serious knee injury, Jean Baptiste de Clerck (prop, Bayonne) prefers to concentrate on its club and Isaac Montoisy and Vincent hart (halfback and first five) that are both injured), this is the strongest squad available.

Some good returns in this squad, with the former captain, Thomas De molder, bringing plenty of experience up front and the additions of Lucas De Coninck (Montpellier) and Jean Maurice Deccuber (Captain and number 6 at Cognac). I expect the belgian to have a good game up front.

There are some exciting backs to watch as well with the call up of new sevens players.

Frédéric Cocqu is the national team head coach, an in-house choice after some rumours regarding French coaches:

I saw this morning on twitter from Oval 15 account

"The Belgium Rugby union is looking to bolster its national squad with players who have currie cup or similar experience (particularly positions 3, 5, 8 and 10). Players must have Belgian ancestry"

Good for them. Portugal should be farming South Africa but seemingly wont. Will be interesting to see what comes of it.
