Spain’s place in Rugby World Cup 2023 in doubt

However, World Rugby announced on Monday that it will convene an independent judicial committee to investigate a possible breach of Regulation 8 concerning a player’s eligibility for internationals by Spain during Rugby World Cup qualifying.

“World Rugby has been made aware of a potential breach involving one member of the Spanish national men’s senior team,” the statement added. “After conducting preliminary investigations, the international federation considers that a formal independent assessment is necessary.” Throughout the early inquiries, the Spanish Rugby Union has been completely accommodating.”

Gavin van der Berg, a South African-born front-rower, is said to be the subject of the investigation. He made his debut in the Rugby Europe Championship, which also served as Rugby World Cup qualifying, on Dec. 18, when Spain defeated the Netherlands 52-7 in Amsterdam. Van der Berg came on in the second half and scored a try.

Van der Berg arrived in Spain in 2018 and had to stay for three years in order to qualify for residence before making his debut on Dec. 18. But, according to reports, he returned to South Africa for four months in 2019 and visited again in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic.

Spain could lose at least the 10 competition points it won against the Netherlands if it is found guilty of violating Regulation 8. It would fall from second to fourth place in European qualifying, and it would be eliminated from the Rugby World Cup. Romania, on the other hand, might finish second and qualify for the world repechage tournament in November, while Portugal could finish third and qualify for the world repechage tournament in November.

Spain has been engaged in controversy for the second consecutive Rugby World Cup qualifying match. Spain, Romania, and Belgium were fined in 2018 for fielding ineligible players, yet Russia qualified for the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
