|The RFU continues to urgently work with all parties, with the clear aim of ensuring that a competitive European tournament continues beyond this season, to grow the game both domestically and across Europe.
Bill Beaumont, RFU Chairman said, “The RFU has been consistent in its view that our primary focus should be to maintain a genuinely pan European tournament so rugby can continue to thrive. For this to be achieved, all parties need to work collaboratively, so that everyone benefits, not least the players and supporters, who have done so much to make European rugby so memorable.”
The Chairman of the RFU and the Six Nations added, “Rest assured I am working closely with RFU CEO Ian Ritchie, and other stakeholders, to find a solution. I welcome the support of the IRB in helping to ensure that this happens and of course as a member Union abide by and support the IRB Regulations.”
