Super Rugby

Super Rugby LogoAlthough originally founded as the Super 12 competition in 1996, two more Super Rugby teams were added to the tournament in 2006 to change the name to Super 14, and in 2011, Super Rugby, as the addition of new team Melbourne Rebels expanded the competition to 15 teams.

The 2013 Super Rugby competition was won by the Chiefs, who defeated the Brumbies 27-22 to claim their second consecutive Super Rugby title.

Will South Africa really leave SANZAR?

Will South Africa really leave SANZAR?

by , 19 Apr 2014

Andrew Mehrtens recently created a little bit of controversy with his comments about not playing South African teams and focusing on closer neighbours and regions within reasonable broadcasting hours. He has a point, but there is more to it. The shared sentiment from both sides of the Indian Ocean is that South Africa could break […]

After opening 2014 with stylish back-to-back bonus-point wins to lead the competition, the Waratahs have fallen in a big hole in Folau’s absence with a throat injury. Folau bagged eight […]
