Super Rugby retrying expansion with a USA team.

Post by NRL&NFLweLaughATafl » Sun May 06, 2018 8:25 am

Looks like the plan is a 4 conference expansion to 20 teams which will likely include a team in the USA.
Time will tell if it happens. But they should have a bit more success than the AFL is having in China. :lol:

Oh, wait a minute.
This is the proper rugby comp.
Is it played in Australia?

Oh that's right the superior rugby code....how does it feel to follow a sport where you will always be the trailing and small version?

Don't think this will be a smart move considering all the travel. its bad enough travel to Africa, Japan and argentina.
The new Major League Rugby looks to succeed where pro rugby failed and have a second year. They should leave it to them and let them expand their own comp.

Barely Im afraid but its still being played. Either way Australia is only a small piece of World rugby. The game is expanding and with MLR in Usa kicking off and the new South American rugby comp starting next year expect it to get even bigger.

would be stupid for the ARU to expand to USA and the current super 15 structured comp

like what rugby 365 stated> USA rugby to make an north American comp

have heard reports that South Arfrican teams could split at end of deal in 2021
and play in Europe>

if I was them I would too>>

I don't get why that don't just have a giant global comp with relegation or conference style and include all nations teams in both hemispheres.

Would be one of the best footy comps in the world.

It will be logistical nightmare and cost a fortune. A world club championship like league would be great but finding the time to do it would be the main issue.

Yeah theres been a lot of talk because the SAANZAR deal ends in 2020. Though i love super rugby cost wise it will be best for SA to go up north and Australia, NZ and Japan (Maybe Argentina) have their own comp. Hopefully by then Australian rugby would have sorted out their issues

yeah logistically it is better for them money wise.

for me, I like Australian sides vs SA sides>> but hate the time zone differences.

yes especially the last 1-2 years it is looking more and more like it will become a Aus NZ Pacific comp

(for me I think Ralene Castle is pathetic)

it'll go down the lines of being aus, nz and japan comp. the pacific bring no money to the table and in the professional environment money is everything

Yeah cost is a big issue. When I think about it. Is probably best to have a local comp in each nation and have a short champions league with all the premiers in each nation.

That way they still keep the game local. But get international interest too then.
