SANZAAR are working on a plan to hold the Southern Hemisphere flagship competition, The Rugby Championship, in New Zealand this year.

With SANZAAR looking at having the Championship in one location, New Zealand looks like the preferred option because of their success in containing the COVID-19 pandemic.

SANZAAR said in a statement that they are well advanced with New Zealand rugby in this plan. New Zealand Rugby are now seeking New Zealand government approval.

The tournament was scheduled to start on the 8th August in Melbourne with the Aussies hosting the All Blacks and the Springboks taking on Argentina.

We will have to wait and see how this all plays out.
