My understanding is that when games can't be played because a team is unable to play (including disqualifications and exclusions like this) than it's treated as 28-0 bonus point win to the other side. I don't think I've ever seen previous results being changed/annulled.It'll be interesting to see how Russia's suspension is dealt with in the European qualifying table. If games involving Russia are no longer counted that will benefit Romania as their record against them in the qualifiers is 1-1 whereas Spain beat them twice.
The other option is to count their remaining games as walkovers, which would benefit Spain as well as Portugal and Georgia who would get automatic wins.
Someone will be unhappy whichever option they choose!
That's not specific to REC, just the rules I've seen used in other rugby tournaments.
