    Global rugby season idea rejected by Six Nations powers

    SUPER Rugby seasons will continue to be awkwardly paused for June Test matches until at least 2020 after a *players’ proposal for a global season was rejected by Six *Nations powers.

    The plans, championed by the International Rugby Players’ Association last year, would have seen the Test window moved from June to July.

    The European domestic season would have started and finished later (October to June), but Six Nations schedules remained unchanged.

    The change would have also allowed the Super Rugby season to run unbroken from February to early July, instead of the current situation that sees the competition put on hold for three weeks to cater for *inbound Test tours.
