We plan to play against the Russian team, but this tournament is held under the auspices of European Rugby and it’s up to them to determine the date of the match.
We’ve agreed on the expected date, this is the end of October – the beginning of November. Summer tests have been postponed and no one knows when it takes place. The November tests have not been postponed. ”
