According to reports, the World Rugby Federation has formulated four separate plans to resume the proposed Nations Championship after the 2023 Rugby World Cup. Rugby Fans can buy Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.
The Nations Championship is a multi-level international competition designed to provide more and more meaningful matches between the two World Cups. It was first proposed by the sport’s global governing body in 2019.
It is also hoped that this concept can provide a way for the development of rugby countries, enabling them to compete more often with the world’s top teams.
Other advantages outlined by World Rugby included union financial security and coordination with club rugby, but the proposal was ultimately rejected as a common agreement on the format could not be reached.
Opponents also believe that holding such a competition every year – each year to crown a hemisphere championship – will devalue the World Cup, but the World Rugby League has not given up on the game.
In an interview with Stuff, Hale T-Pole, president of Pacific Rugby Players, revealed that four different ways to host the game are being discussed.
The original concept of World Rugby was to divide the major rugby countries into two conferences, namely the European conference and the rest of the world conference. Each conference is composed of three divisions.
The top division of each conference will consist of Six Nations teams and rugby championship teams, and the two highest-ranked non-European teams (then Japan and Fiji) will join the rugby championship teams.
The second division of each conference is also planned to have six teams made up of sub-optimal countries in their respective areas, and the third division of each conference is planned to be divided into four pools of four third-tier countries.
Each division has promotion and relegation playoffs, which give low-level teams the opportunity to regularly interact with high-level teams. Rugby Fans can buy France Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.
However, the threat of relegation from the six countries turned out to be at the heart of some major European unions, leading to the cancellation of the concept of national championships.
So far, as T-Pole told Stuff, rugby stakeholders have proposed an improved national championship format for the key meeting next month.
The former Tongan international said: “We are currently discussing the reorganization of the championship, global competition, and options 1A, 1B, 2A, and 2B.”
“I think November will be an exciting time for these discussions, a second-tier game of eight teams. Then you have a top four of the top four or whatever they would call it.
T-Pole’s disappointment at the lack of competition in the Pacific islands, even if the national championship doesn’t kick-off for a second time, maybe mitigated as he said the “Pacific Rim” competition is also being considered.
The Pacific Nations Cup, which ultimately consisted of Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Japan, the United States, and Canada, has not been held since 2019, leaving rugby leaders in some of these countries disaffected.
In August, two months before the United States will bid to host the 2027 and 2031 World Cups, NFL CEO Ross Young expressed concern about the Eagles’ lack of meaningful competition.
The Eagles have paid the price for their recent lack of competitiveness, as they were beaten 104-14 by the All Blacks this weekend in Washington DC. This match is no different from New Zealand’s 102-0 defeat to Tonga in July.
However, such outbursts are a thing of the past and if the Pacific Nations Cup returns, T-Pole hopes to be able to do just that.
“It was mentioned in the conversation. As you know, the more games the better for the islands. Clearly, Covid-19 will not help them, but there have been discussions about competing with the United States in the Pan- Pacific League.”
