U20s and Womens going ahead but BCD. as of now
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

It's a decent list with some broad scope research but some of the UK based suggestions may be over-rated. The development of some players either hits a wall or accelerates at this age and certainly the loss of the JWC will be a huge disappointment to this entire age-grade. Hopefully World Rugby will try very hard to get an alternative window for this competition in September.

I would go as far as to suggest that the IRFU should offer to host the Tournament from the first week of September for 5 weeks. Potential venues could include Energia Park, Independent Park, Thomond Park, or other Club 4G facilities around the country.

Yes, there may be an economic risk in this offer but now is the time that a Union which fundamentally has resources (facilities, Professional Staff & Volunteers) needs to put their hand up to bail out the rugby world and look to assist the recovery of our society from the extraordinary impact of this Pandemic.

That would be class if it was over here, I thought it’s still going ahead no? Didn’t hear anything about the JWC being postponed / cancelled

Would be nice to have an event in Munster or even better in galway. A world cup with games in Limerick and Galway so Sportsground and Thomond would be fantastic. I personally wouldnt have anything in Dublin. Not enough big rugby events played outside Dublin when there used be far more
