World Rugby, the governing body for the sport of rugby union, has said it may look into the possibility of hosting a world cup every two years.

While it seems an interesting concept, the following points will need careful consideration.

The rugby calendar is already jam-packed with a tight schedule. Both the southern and northern rugby hemispheres must contend with several domestic and international tournaments. There is also the matter of easing the amount of pressure on players to lessen the risk of injuries. Hosting a biennial world cup would therefore be impractical for the time being.

That said, it will be interesting to see what outcomes, if any, there will be.

We’ll keep our readers updated as best we can.
