Rugby risks losing Pacific Is nations
Out of the 368 players who took to the field in last week's autumn internationals, 104 of those were Pacific Islanders. But how much money was banked back in Samoa, Fiji and Tonga?

At Twickenham on Saturday, when England hosted Samoa, supporters flocked in - paying £60 a ticket and £6 a pint - and helped the RFU secure one of their biggest paydays of the year.
