I doubt the games in the second division would be viewed as 'big' matches. The Six Nations is really the only thing outside of World Cups that catches the attention of casual fans from a rugby perspective. The importance of that to the Northern Hemisphere Unions is huge. None of the current sides are going to potentially put themselves outside of that pool. Add to that the remaining sides are not going to want to risk replacing legacy matches which, regardless of the quality of the teams, sell out big stadiums with matches against Georgia even if they might be a better team. There are too many money problems in rugby at the moment for them to be messing with the cash cow that is the Six Nations. I can't see relegation ever happening, the hope for Georgia would be to be added to a Seven Nations I suppose. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
