English managers lead Guinness Six Nations Fantasy Rugby going into final weekend

Q & A on CVC’s offer to buy stake in Six Nations

World Rugby, who was mandated by the unions to investigate the viability of an annual competition, argue this is a short-term outlook on growth due, with the blocking of promotion and relegation reducing competitiveness.

CVC's deal would see the national unions within the Six Nations tournament receive a windfall of investment, but the unions would lose some control of the championship, with CVC then overseeing the tournament's commercial rights.

World Rugby outlined its concept for the new tournament last Wednesday, which would start in 2022, saying it was "committed to the global advancement of rugby".

World Rugby will today offer to postpone the threat of relegation in the proposed Nations Championship until at least 2024 in an attempt to win support for the new competition when pitching it to the global unions.

The IPRC re-affirmed its commitment to the global meeting on Thursday to discuss the latest version of the World Rugby proposal.

Many of the Six Nations countries are opposed to relegation, while it is supported by Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

A further complaint by the organisations that oversee the English Premiership, as well as the French Top 14 and ProD2, was the increase in the number of worldwide fixtures in a season due to the proposed competition. And where television is concerned, the way for CVC to maximise revenue is to strike a deal for the Six Nations to be screened on pay subscription services. 'Players understand, better than anyone, what happens at the coalface and how certain decisions impact both the players and the broader game, so it would be counterproductive to cast the player view aside. It follows a conference call meeting of the Players Council on Tuesday night, which took place two weeks after the group highlighted serious player welfare and integrity concerns around World Rugby's proposed global competition structure.

A new global season is due to kick off next year, running until 2032, and discussions have taken place about a new Nations League that would combine 12 worldwide sides from both hemispheres in a competition running through summer and autumn and culminating with play-offs and a final. Early drafts for the Nations Championship set-up suggested the Pacific Island nations could be frozen out too.
