Russian Federation qualify for Rugby World Cup 2019 in place of Romania
16 May 2018, 03:12 | Glen Norman
Russia have replaced Romania in Pool A at the 2019 World Cup
"Rescheduling is necessary to maximise time following the conclusion of independent disputes committee review of matters relating to the 2017-18 Rugby Europe Championship, a competition run by Rugby Europe that doubles as Rugby World Cup 2019 qualification", the statement reads.
Spain had hoped for a reprieve following a World Rugby investigation into the circumstances of their loss to Belgium, but the independent panel has chosen to dock all three teams points, subject to appeal.
It looked like Romania had secured the Europe 1 berth which would see them join hosts Japan, Scotland and top seeds Ireland in Pool A, until World Rugby's ruling.
"There are some players for sure they are not available for these games but, as you know, we are having our Super 9 at the moment, our local tournament", he said.
Malaysian Muslims to begin fasting Thursday
The committee is set to meet after prayers on the evening of Tuesday, May 15, at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, WAM said. Previous year more accidents happened in the late morning rush hour between 10am and 11am than any other time.
World Rugby had originally meant to make Spain and Belgium replay that match - which was refereed by Romanian Vlad Iordachescu - but following counter-claims of eligibility infractions, commissioned an independent disputes committee to look into the matter.
"While the independent disputes committee has determined that mistakes were not made in bad faith by Rugby Europe and some participating unions, World Rugby is extremely disappointed with the unfortunate and avoidable events, as expressed when announcing the convening of the independent committee".
The upshot is that Belgium and Romania have been hit with a 30-point deduction and Spain with a 40-point deduction.
Belgium therefore lost 30 points after being found to have fielded five ineligible players across six matches.
Russian Rugby Union deputy chairman Kirill Yashenkov said it was "absolutely fair" his team qualified because other teams committed "grave violations of the rules".
As a result, Belgium were fined 125,000 pounds, suspended for a period of five years conditional that no breaches occur during that period.
World Rugby insisted that players would be released for the two matches, however, and revealed that it would fund the country's entry into next month's Pacific Nations Cup in Fiji.
"However, the invitation to overturn a result because of the "appearance of bias" or because of the unsatisfactory way that Rugby Europe dealt with the proper request made by Spain to remove the match officials, is in our judgment not sufficient".
