ABSA Currie Cup remains a 6 team Premier competition
SARU today announced that the Special General Council meeting of the unions decided against a 8 team Premier Division in 2014.
With this it will also mean that we will continue to see a play-off situation in Super Rugby. Had the Council voted in favour of the expanded competition they would probably have voted to entrench the Liins in Super Rugby till 2016.
It seems that SARU an its unions jut don’t want to learn from their mistakes. They are rather set on digging the hole they are in deeper and deeper. This was an opportunity to salvage some face after the stuff-up of the last 2 years. Still they have opted to keep the status quo as is.
Hopedully one day in the future we will get a President an council that has some balls an make dicisions based on what is good for the game and nor just tue coffers. What they dont seem to realise is that if they do what ia best for rugby, the money will follow.
For now we are set to keep coming back and havin ro try and understand the farce.
