Belgium begin a two match home and away series against the Czech Republic tomorrow. From the comments on the Facebook page the Czech Republic have had to draft in a lot of late replacements and have also endured a 10 hour bus journey. Hope their performance makes it worthwhile for them.

Latvia will host Spain in Riga on May 9th to kick off the qualifying process for the World Cup. This is exciting not only because of the nations involved, and the progress they have made, but also because there will be a record number of nations involved in the qualifying process.

Heads gone

Lots of criticism about the Welsh allowing George North to play on with concussion. The last four paragraphs of the story make particularly grim reading. World Rugby does have a bob or two, so if player safety is unjustifiably not their number one priority, it begs the question what on earth can possibly be more important when allocating their budgets?



Last year's RFU injury audit found that concussion was again the most common injury suffered by professional players in the Aviva Premiership. The audit for the 2013/14 season will be published this Wednesday.

World Rugby intend to employ independent matchday doctors at this year's World Cup whose job will be to alert team medics to suspected concussions in a bid to avoid a repeat of the North incident.

'In an ideal world we'd have independent doctors at every single professional rugby match but it always comes back to cost,' said one well-placed source.
