But we didn’t have the covid mutations then that we do now!

Less is more for Test rugby in a post-pandemic world

what do you mean “get up at 2am”? 😁

Covid.

you were on your phone weren’t you? 😊

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

That’s right; they learnt you can not play the Pumas the way they can play the Wallabies. That’s why all teams need variety in their Test diet (to semi-quote a nutritionist)

Breakdown is on Stan, Brett. Stan picked up 5-6 shows from Sky NZ including the Japanese league

You can’t use Two Blues and Emus as feeder clubs. If those clubs had talented players, they would be dominating the SS. A Pasifika side in NZ makes total sense given that the Maori are Islanders themselves, and players could bulk up the MP side to make it more competitive in the early years.

You may want the Boks to go north but I don’t think the 6N crowd want it.

enough for them to want to bring back tours of old, whatever that figure is.

But SA wants to keep playing the ABs.

I worked in Mt Druitt for 5 years, LBJ. I know the lay of the land. It’s up to Sydney RU and NSW RU to do something: Is Sydney RU even running these days?

TT bubble open one day and a NZ border guard caught covid. Watch the space …

But the WR broadcasts are geotagged; they won’t show into regions like RSA and Argentina

Drua may opt for NZ because it’s easier to move in with no state borders.

NZ Rugby can show leadership. Fact is RA historically has not been all that engaged with the PIs. Given the malaise in RA administration in this country, may not be such a bad thing!

Brett, do you know if RA was able to secure broadcast rights into the UK?

Because NZ is closer to the PI than Aust, who have their own problems.

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

That’s one way to read it. The other is that RA is worried about the new team impacting on their broadcast revenue for the teams or ability to attract good ratings. NZ Rugby has already agreed to share broadcast revenue. Whats the word from RA on that score, do you know?

Jacko, I refer you to my other comment. And the Drua wren’t kicked out; the entire competition was axed.

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

The Drua WILL not compete in Super Rugby NZ, John. Why is this so hard for some people to understand? MP will be based in NZ which means the Drua will play in Australia. NZ Rugby has taken point on this, which the RA is happy for them to do, but as NZ have already said, RA needs to come to the party to make this happen. Do NOT think for one minute that RA is out of the loop on this!

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

Makes more sense for each competition to have three games a weekend. Drua will go in Super Aust and Moana will be based in NZ. Done deal. The worry is RA; will they want to delay this to 2023 as has been reported?

Not sure RSA will want to be out of the Rugby Champs. No room for them up North.

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

Yep. I’m a ABs fan and I for one say the ABs deserved to lose that one. Pumas played a game the ABs weren’t used to and that’s the point of having different teams in the competition; we’ll see if the ABs have learnt anything during this year’s competition.

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

The fixtures for the Super Round still have to be decided, R999. I assume the Drua may not have a role to play in RA’s PE talks but I suspect MP may have a role in NZ’s PE talks. Don’t forget, the Drua and MP sides are well advanced, logistically. MP have already played a game so their have their challenge and uniforms sorted. (Damn! I love using acronyms!)

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

The Pumas beat the ABs in Parramatta last year (still hurting from that one). That alone should justify their eventual re-inclusion. Both South Africa and Argentina needs to remain in the mix; NZ is too small a market and Australia is too fragmented.
