    So with this years 6 nations more or less over ( my opinion only can’t see it going ahead maybe in the November window but clubs will probably decide that). Does anyone think the 6 nations 2021 will go ahead. Gerry Thornley has an interesting idea of a home and away arrangement for 2021.

    Basically he is saying a 10 game six nations home and away games.

    2021 6Ns can really only go ahead as normal if we have mass vaccinations or there are better treatments.

    It's too attritional for a 10 game series.

    The RWC finalists play max 7 games for reference.

    10 games is way too many in one year.

    As I said yesterday Rugby is being left behind at the moment, it's been forgotten about. Time for decisions to be made.

    Absolutely. CVC don't even know what they're buying at the moment, let alone what it's worth.

    The Lions tour is still expected to go ahead next year also.

    I would imagine the 6N will be absolutely desperate to hold a tournament in 2021, even if they have to go to extreme measures to get games played.
