I guess we did get the short end of the stick.
The reason for playing Japan in France is to limit travel costs. Because the majority of our team are Europe based it cost less. I'm pretty sure it's either the English Saxons or the Actually Barbarians Rfc.

Fair enough. The Saxons would be better than the Barbarians IMO but we'll find out I guess.

World rugby selling the impact of SR on the Islanders. We shall see shortly if it improves things. I think it has to make a difference in squad depth.
