    Japan, Fiji in line to join expanded 2020 Six Nations

    TODAY AT 8:06 AM INTERNATIONAL
    by AAP


    The Six Nations sides along with Japan and Fiji are set to feature in an eight-team tournament to replace the northern hemisphere's autumn internationals.

    The tournament is scheduled to begin on November 14, two weeks after the completion of the Six Nations Championship, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in March.

    The BBC reported that England are likely to be in a four-team pool alongside Wales, Ireland and Fiji, while Scotland, France, Italy and Japan will make up the other group.

    After playing each other once, the teams will face their corresponding-ranked side in the other pool on the final weekend.

    England are scheduled to face Ireland and Fiji at Twickenham with the venue for the Wales game still to be decided.

    The tournament will be staged on four consecutive weekends until December. 5, in line with the temporary international window proposed by World Rugby last week.

    So Japan and Fiji are playing 6 nations because SANZAAR can't get their shit together and overcome self-interest?

    Even more concerning is the fact that the Six Nations isn't a tournament that's short on self-interest, are Australia and New Zealand now officially the most up themselves nations in World Rugby?

    Fiji are playing this year only because most of their players are based in Europe and travel restrictions due to Covid.
