    There will no Tests this year right?

    *dramatic thread warning* But like, they're not going to go ahead are they? If the game is going to lose all this money due a forthcoming season played with no fans - how could the Tests be bankrolled?

    What now International Forum? Hot takes from the past two weeks.

    Did last night happen? My head is spinning from what Tonga have achieved. It's going to be easy to be swept up in 'Tonga can win in 2021', but realistically, what will happen between now and the next group of International Tests? The domestic Tongan scene must be sorted out, by say...

    Source is today’s Daily Telegraph. Can’t post due to paywall etc. All I can say is lol. With the 9’s apparently struggling to sell tickets, and the whole Tonga situation - this is shaping up to be the worst International series ever.
