    They get big crowds for their games and from all accounts its very popular in the country.

    However as others have said its Ireland test cricket all over again, I don't think their is any appetite to expand the six nations and promotion/relegation play off is not going to appeal to any of the six nations side. Nobody would miss Italy, but imagine the fall out if Wales/Scotland or even Ireland were ambushed in such a match?

    e.g Be similar to the reaction when Ireland/Bangladesh beat Pakistan and India in 2007.

    Exactly this.

    Of course there's self interest involved, but part of the appeal of the Six Nations is its history. Ok, Italy would be the losers if there was relegation but it's not long ago that Scotland finished bottom of the pile. There's no way that England or Ireland v Georgia is a more appealing fixture than playing Scotland.

    I can see some potential in a competition with Italy, Romania, Georgia, Russia and Germany. Leave the home nations to do their thing and try to grow something new and better

    Quite like old times with English indiscipline conceding penalty after penalty. Same old culture that the rules don't actually apply to them.

    And that should be the end of it. Well done Wales, comprehensively the better side. As for England, same old same old when the poor dears have to play away from HQ in a deciding match in the Six Nations.

    Too much long ball kicking and lack of discipline in second half.

    Interesting rugby proposals to say the least. I do wish the people behind it stfu about developing the game etc, this is to prop up the likes of SANZAAR nations finances. Terrible for Georgia and the Islands and can't see the players been keen with this schedule.

    Why are Australia in such poor financial rugby shape? Not exactly a third world nation and the game is pretty popular their surely?

    Game is dying here due to mismanagement & risk of serious injuries to young players

    Ireland have been a rabble this six nations, they needed a reality check obviously, but 2nd fav with the bookies to win the world cup? No thanks.

    Wales have been great all campaign, okish world cup draw and with Gatland in charge arguably as good chance as anyone not names NZ to win it.
