Six Nations Chief Rules Out Relegation

January 30, 2017

Six Nations Chief Executive John Feehan says relegation from the tournament will not be included in the short or medium term.

Georgia and Romania have expressed a desire to be added to the top tier of European Rugby, but Feehan has indicated a reluctance to alter the current competition.

Italy were added to the yearly tournament in 2000, and have finished bottom in 11 of their 17 Six Nations campaigns. However, Feehan has batted away speculation of the Italians being replaced in the immediate future of the competition.
