'World Rugby not fully involving all stakeholders in Nations Championship talks'

'World Rugby not fully involving all stakeholders in Nations Championship talks'

World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont called Thursday's meeting to discuss the future of the worldwide game amid controversy over plans for a Nations League.

Samoa's Prime Minister has attacked World Rugby's plans to launch a Nations Championship insisting the proposed structure will mean the Pacific Islands nations will remain as merely "breeding farms" for larger rugby countries.

According to Newshub, yesterday, they issued a joint statement to express their concerns, hinting at legal action, if World Rugby proceeds with its proposed plans to restructure the global game.

"LNR and PRL regret the fact that World Rugby is not fully involving all stakeholders in seeking a consensus and can only reserve the option to take any action to preserve their rights and competitions".

Meanwhile, lawyers for Huong have confirmed writing to the attorney-general (AG) to drop the charge against her. Prosecutors told the court that they had been instructed to withdraw the charge against Siti Aisyah.

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 global fixtures in a season due to the proposed competition.

The proposed Championship would see the formation of two conferences - a European conference and a rest of the world conference - each with two divisions of six teams and a third division comprising 16 teams.

However, the concept is in danger of collapse with the Six Nations organisation, also based in Dublin, being offered more than £500m by CVC for a 30 percent stake in the annual tournament reducing the financial need to take part in World Rugby's new competition.

'Maybe this is me being selfish as a coach who has won a World Cup, but for the sake of rugby's integrity, we can't have the top teams playing each other every year'.
