This week, the list of outlaws clubs is shortening thanks to Carcassonne discovery of Word Rugby Laws.
Despite being heavily composed of domestic players, Russia can't play with all his best players.

Mike Tadjer of Massy
Fabio Da Silva of Bourgoin
Samuel Marques of Pau

Still some respect to Georgia. Dmitri Basilaia returned from an injury last week. We can't be sure he's retained by Perpignan
Late January, Spain designated a 53-player squad list. Excellent players from Top 14 and Pro D2 were named in the squad. This list strangely disappeared from the official website of FER. This is Spain fifth game in the Rugby Europe Championship.
