One of the suggestions are for a two-month-long tournament which include the four Super Rugby Franchise and the two PRO14 franchises.

It also makes previous for the two test against Scotland to be played in October but the Georgia test to be scrapped.

The end-of-year tour would be going ahead as planned.

This means that the Super Rugby competition will not be completed.
