The Rugby Championship will add two teams in 2020

Japan and Fiji will be invited to an expanded Rugby Championship, according to The Times.

Following Japan’s success at this year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan, as well as Fiji’s status as one of the game’s sleeping giants, the SANZAAR unions (South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina) have reportedly agreed to include them in an expanded Rugby Championship.


Between World Cups, both are in desperate need of regular competition against rugby’s elite sides to continue their exciting development.

SANZAAR is also believed to be contemplating a drastic change to the Rugby Championship schedule, with the expanded tournament to run parallel with Super Rugby.
