Professional Forum

Global rugby season still pie in the sky

The game's major stakeholders including clubs and countries took part in the forum overnight, to discuss restructuring the current calendar to better align the international game between the northern and southern hemispheres.

World Rugby, Sanzaar, the Six Nations, the British and Irish Lions and representatives of elite European club's were among those in attendance.

However in a statement, World Rugby said the parties couldn't agree on any proposals, meaning the global season, for now, is dead in the water.
