Solving the club and Test match clashes is a major priority; the degree of overlap at the moment doesn’t help anybody. Fans want to see their marquee players playing for their clubs, and England fans want to see England players able to perform at their very best. Therefore de-conflicting that international calendar is a key consideration for us. Match and minute limits will only come under more pressure. So taking this approach will help us achieve those two things. ” Hooper back in Wallabies squad Michael Hooper will return to the Australia squad for the autumn internationals after taking a break for mental health reasons.

RFU chief executive Sweeney has insisted the governing body is still committed to the long-mooted global calendar, signalling the "major priority" of resolving fixture clashes between club and country. Sweeney has predicted any changes on a slimmed-down English top flight would not come into force until the 2024-25 season. The RFU and Premiership Rugby are already in talks over the Professional Game Agreement (PGA), even though the existing terms do not expire until June 2024. Sweeney admitted the RFU has precious few short-term fixes for either stricken clubs Worcester or Wasps but insisted the financial crisis must spark a major overhaul of the English game. Asked if a reduced, 10-team Premiership could be an answer, Sweeney said: “I do see it as viable for a number of reasons, and we’ve been saying for quite some time now that less is more.
Line-outs, driving mauls, scrums there was a lot of penalties there. We didn’t capitalise on the opportunities in that area and didn’t front up physically enough in that area. Credit to the Black Ferns; they put everything at us. “They scored a couple of quick tries again in that first half, and the same in second half, we let them score two tries, which isn’t the way we wanted to start. They pounced on our mistakes, they have deadly wingers that can create stuff from nothing. ” RFU chief backs 10-team Premiership Bill Sweeney has thrown the Rugby Football Union's support behind a 10-team Premiership to help solve the sport's financial crisis, the Press Association reports.

London Irish release statement Premiership side London Irish have released a statement dismissing “total and utter speculation” they are merging with troubled side Wasps.

The Exiles were put up for sale by owner Mick Crossnan in September, with Crossnan saying he would sell the Brentford-based club for £1 if any buyer can take on the debt and safeguard their future. On Sunday night, Irish released a statement categorically ruling out such a merger. The short statement read: "The board of directors of London Irish has today dismissed as 'total and utter speculation' the press reports alleging that the club is exploring a merger with Wasps, who have been suspended from the Gallagher Premiership and face relegation if, as expected, they go into administration.

Today's rugby news as Wales international 'wreaks havoc' in perfect displayHere are the latest rugby headlines on Monday, October 17. Reffell 'wreaks havoc' Wales star Tommy Reffell turned in a barnstorming display in Leicester Tigers' 27-19 win over Harlequins on Sunday.

The 30-year-old flanker withdrew from the Rugby Championship in August, saying he was not in the right "mindset" to play. He will now return for Tests against Scotland, France, Italy and Wales.

I don’t know if 10 is the absolute number but that’s the one being used now, but in that and the central distribution around broadcast and commercial revenues, clearly there’s a financial benefit for less teams in that league. “Clearly one of the major issues we’ve got to grapple with is the calendar.
