Fiji Confirm They're About To Join The 'Six Nations Rugby Competition'

Following the recent news that a proposed eight-nation tournament is likely to replace the 2020 November Internationals, Fiji Rugby has confirmed that they're close to finalising details to see their entry.

In terms of this year's stunted Six Nations, both the men's and women's competitions are being scheduled to recommence at the end of October. The rest weekend is provisionally slotted-in for November 7.

Ireland still have to play their fixtures home to Italy and away to France.

In terms of the traditional November internationals, they're set to be scrapped and replaced with an eight-team tournament between the teams in the current Six Nations plus ‘invited teams’.

Fiji, Georgia, and Japan are the leading contenders. These fixtures are set to take place in the window from November 14- December 5.

A recent statement from Fiji Rugby confirms the reports that the Pacific Island nation is set to compete in this new tournament.

“We are on the verge of joining the Six Nations Rugby Competition and have Super Rugby New Zealand and Australia knocking on our doors, great opportunities for Fiji Rugby which we could only dream of in the past," it states.
