This monTh six nATions
RW contributor Adam Hathaway proposed that the Six Nations be moved to April, citing improved weather and the need for a global season – read it at po.st/6Nmove. Here are your thoughts from social media on a tournament shift… Yes. As long as all domestic and european competitions were wrapped up by April. then you could have two months of 6 nations without robbing clubs of their best players at business end of the season. William Wicks i just wonder where future Lions tours would fit into this idea? Would we expect players to finish a gruelling 6 nations and then pretty much get straight on a plane for a tour? Steve birch how does moving it to April help at all? Club season only has 5 games after 6n as it is.
@LtUSm it would certainly eliminate the mid-season drop-off in form for the leading professional sides.
norman mcLeod how good would this be if it was moved? We wouldn’t be made to play on the same days. Alan brown So how do the SAnZAAr sides feel about moving their season then? #thisisawintergame
@irishlondoner Yes, stop letting the southern hemisphere have all the advantage!!
