Fixing something that is not broken.

Recommended Posts

Back in the day when they first started the expansion of Super Rugby, my thoughts were that they were trying to fix something that is not broken.

There is a much simpler way of getting more sides involved without fucking up the competition format in the way they eventually did. They could have introduced a two tier competition with promotion and relegation between the two, like they are doing with the European competition. 

Hopefully they have now finally learned that less could sometimes be more. 

SUPER RUGBY FUTURE IS 14 TEAMS

If they go back to the same format as either the S10 or the S14, I say go for it. The whole thing went for a pot of shyte, the minute they tried to make it too big and were forced to go to the conference bullshit. How many years did it take them to realise that it was a fucked up idea from the start?

Help me understand exactly how S/Rugby is going to fit in with the proposed "World Rugby" gig?

So I understand the Wolves are out, I haven't heard of any other franchises yet. 

Is it just a coincident that the Wolves were included before the run up to the WC, and now they're out?

If not a coincident, did SuperRugby know that Japan would host the WC?

SR provided Japan with an ideal 'Preparation Competition' for the WC.

It is not as if they were kicked out, Weda. They actually pulled out because the Japanese Rugby Union cut their financial support.

Thanks for the info Vlag. I don't know that my bad.

Still I feel they used SR as convenient preparation for the WC.

So the question arises did Japan Rugby know they would be holding the next WC.

They did. It was decided years ago. The 2023 one will be in France.
