SANZAAR boss Andy Marinos doesn't think the Rugby Championship is at risk of not going ahead despite New Zealand Rugby expressing their disappointment and that they haven't agreed to this schedule.

New Zealand Rugby's "disappointment" rests on the sixth and final round of the tournament which is to be played on December 12th.
Under New Zealand's current border regulations, players would have to quarantine for 14 days by themselves and would therefore be unable to spend the Christmas festival with their families.
