MADNESS | Fans react to ‘Seven Nations’ as new country set to join

South Africa are on course to join the Six Nations after the 2023 Rugby World Cup, according to a report from the Mail Online.

If the proposed plan goes ahead, it’s expected that the Springboks will take their place in Europe’s annual Test tournament in 2024.

Negotiations on the subject have been going on behind the scenes for some time, starting when two teams from the country joined the Guinness PRO14.

The plan would involve expanding the championship to a seven-team event, meaning struggling Italy would retain their place in the Championship.


One source has reportedly suggested that: ‘Things are falling nicely into place.’

Of course the move would also cause huge ructions in the southern hemisphere, leaving Rugby Championship (consisting of Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and South Africa) in crisis.

Although it has been suggested already that Japan are improving fast and could naturally fill the void to aid their development.
