A petition has been launched to protest World Rugby’s treatment of Pacific Nations
The story broke last week that Fiji, Tonga and Samoa could be excluded from a new world format but a dozen sides from the European Six Nations, the Rugby Championship of New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina, as well as Japan and the USA would participate.
The reported plan ruled out promotion and relegation for at least 10 seasons, meaning the Pacific Islands’ countries as well as other rising nations such as Georgia, would have no chance to win a place later.
A petition has since been launched and has almost recieved 5,000 signatures already.
