Newly elected World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont has insisted on shifting the Six Nations tournament to April as a part of his plan to integrate the Northern and Southern hemisphere.
The teams from the Southern Hemisphere want the summer tours to be shifted to July from June in order to avoid clashes with the Super Rugby tournament.
On the other hand, Six Nations chief executive John Feehan, had said earlier that the tournament will not be shifted from its regular cycle of February-March due to commercial and broadcasting appeal. However, Beaumont clarified that Six Nations organisers should be flexible for the proposed change.
"The game has changed undoubtedly, and you have got to keep moving," Beaumont told The Times.
"I think you have got to be prepared to look at (moving the Six Nations). That could well be a solution. Everyone has to take a look at it."
Another possible solution could be is to create a two-month international window in October and November but it wouldn't be an easy task considering the amount of games happening in English and French leagues currently.
However, the 64-year-old believes in order to create a new global season, compromises are needed in all parts.
"I know John (Feehan) will probably be quite reluctant to (move the Six Nations). It's a question of compromise,” Beaumont added.
