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!!
