RWC 2027 - Expanded to 24 teams

This is a terrible idea. Only going add more pointless games and still no competitions to get the tier 2-3 teams in each year for them to grow.

I really feel like rugby is killing itself but by bit for greed.
Agree, 100%.
 
I doubt Canada can.
Canada is pretty sucessful (relatively) on the women's side and had been at the Tier 2/3 table before. I know nothing about it but what stopping them from being there again?

Basically they made all the men's players move to Langford if they wanted to be HP. There has also been issue finding funding for a second MLR team.

Women's rugby is a varsity sport in a lot of high schools but men's rugby isn't (gridiron is preferred) so their women's team will always be strong.

They essentially have all the issues that American men do but a smaller population and a smaller player base to draw funding from.
