The International Rugby Board is expected to announce soon that the World Series will expand to 10 tournaments, from nine in 2011-2012. As expected, the new tournament will be in Argentina.

Traditionally the World Series has been divided into groups of two - with the pair of tournaments being played on consecutive weekends, followed by a break.

Last year, when the Series expanded to nine tournaments, the first group has three tournaments - Gold Coast, Dubai, and South Africa.

That will change with the addition of the 10th event, and it's expected there will be five groups of two tournaments, starting in the fall.
