(Reuters) - World Rugby's proposed global league will guarantee billions of pounds in investment while a revised schedule would address player welfare concerns, the sport's governing body said after meeting major stakeholders in Dublin on Thursday.

The governing body said the proposed Nations Championship could be supported by a partnership with Swiss-based sports marketing firm Infront, guaranteeing nearly 5 billion pounds over an initial 12-year period.
