SANZAAR: Statement on Super Rugby


The SANZAAR Executive Committee (Exco) met in London on Friday 10 March to assess the economic and sporting environment under which its tournaments (Super Rugby and The Rugby Championship) are operating and to review the final steps of the strategic planning process that started in May last year.

“Following two days of robust discussion there are a number of tournament considerations that now require further discussion and consultation. This includes final consultation within the National Unions and discussion with key stakeholders that would allow the adoption of changes proposed by the strategic plan,” stated SANZAAR CEO Andy Marinos.

“SANZAAR will make a formal statement on the future of the organisation, Super Rugby and the tournament format in the coming days once these further meetings have been concluded,” added Marinos.

  1. Not much one can read into the above. Elsewhere there have been less guarded statements that a proposal up for consideration but unlikely to be adopted is that S18 reverts to S15. Aus to lose 1 team and SA 2! On current standings Rebels, Kings and Bulls would go. Again highly unlikely to happen…..surely??

  2. If SA rugby are to lose 2 teams then they should insist the travelling is reduced. Oz and nz and sunwilves all un their own timezone. Huge advantage . Worse its buggering our players up.
