Rugby's SANZAAR and Six Nations unions have entered into a consultation process, aimed towards the creation of an aligned, global rugby calendar.

In a joint statement from the two parties, both SANZAAR (made up of South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina) and the Six Nations (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy) outlined the desire for a single, aligned calendar from which global rugby could operate.

They say even though there may be different preferences, from the outset the nations have adopted a mindset that has sought to eliminate self-interest and recognise that the international and club game have shared mutual benefits that if approached and managed correctly can enable both to flourish.

They add a further consultation process, in total transparency with unions, clubs and players, will commence as all parties work towards an aligned global calendar that can deliver a clear and coherent narrative.
