Post Should promotion and relegation be introduced to the 6N?
Yet again, Italy have conceded around one hundred points in the space of just two matches. They have now not won a single Six Nations match for three years. Moreover, for some time now Georgia have been ranked higher globally than Italy, while Romania are only one place behind Italy. Therefore, should promotion and relegation be introduced to the Six Nations, just as there is at all other tiers of European rugby?

Italy had a lot of penalties at the end.

I think the referee might have known that.

Just a guess.

I recall suggesting Georgia for the 6N some time back; nobody seemed to agree.

It's possible this Season for a wooden spoon for France.
Would you relegate them?

This real potential has to be considered and it isn't just one season positioning ...it is other significanr organisational and revenue potential that would have a significant on the other 5 ...

Just consider consequences before broaching reflex proposals ;)

You might also provide opportunity for others to revise the total 6 Nations and other tournaments structures ...

Careful ....

(As above) Be careful what you wish for, it is not long since Wales looked to be heading there.

I like the idea, but I can understanding that planning a few years in advance would be difficult if we dont know where some of the games will be plaid or televised from.

I also dont know what the reception would be from those invited to contest either, for the same reason

What would happen to the income if England or France were relegated

I agree entirely with this concept! Promotion and relegation would give teams such as Georgia and Romania the rightful chance to compete in the top NH competition. Also it may finally force Italy to be better, and invest in their game at national and local level.

Maybe relegation could be considered if the same team finished bottom, say 3 years in a row, but not otherwise, and I would advocate a one match play off between the top Tier 2 side and the bottom Tier 1 side.

Are they better than Italy? I don't know either way but I suspect they aren't.

So a team only has to win 1 game to stay in the top flight , no probs use the 6 N as practice then ,.
