    Interesting could pave the way of opening up the 6 nations if successful. Issue is it will show up Italy even further.

    The logistics of trying to cram everything in is absolutely mad. How would the travel even work with this. I see there's talk of two pools but there's still a huge amount of travel there. Anyone know how Japan and Fiji are getting on with the virus?

    Basically didn't touch Fiji - 18 cases, 18 recoveries.

    Japan is doing well considering where they were a couple months ago, but there are concerns that it's ramping up again - start of the month they had 30-40 cases a day, currently 80ish, after easing their lockdown - so like 10% what the UK has.

    I think for the likes of Fiji and Japan it would have to be run as though they are the away team each game?

    This is not a good move.

    Give it a chance, it just might work out. If not, they can always go back.

    I think it's just a one off due to travel restrictions from the rona
