Stuart Barnes, ex player of the English national team with a great time in Bath for almost nine years, classified as “a matter of time” the entry of South Africa to the Six Nations.
In a column in the Sunday Times, entitled “Six Nations, in line with the South African invasion,” the Englishman spoke about the possible inclusion of the Springboks to the European contest, and related it to the entry of South African teams to Pro 14 and the chance that they will also play the Champions Cup.
“At least one South African team will qualify for the European Champions Cup. Names, nationalities, they don’t seem to matter in the growing global world of rugby. The decision makers, whilethus, they have their sights set higher. With South Africa in Europe at club level, it’s only a matter of time before they find their way to the Six or Seven Nations, who knows how many nations “, he assured.
