Absolutely gutted but it is what it is.
Super rugby just wasn't a sustainable tournament format.I think i finally understand why nobody cares about union in Australia and everyone just follows league.
It was working at Super 10’s and 12’s.Super rugby just wasn't a sustainable tournament format.
I reckon the current domestic + Trans Tasman games are a better option, however the kiwi skills are on another level.
South African teams would be hard to work in any context due to geographical constraints and time zones. The only problem with the 10's structure is that as a full home and a way season there aren't really enough games.It was working at Super 10’s and 12’s.
The way they should of went was similar to the format now.
SA: Bulls Sharks Lions Cheetahs Stormers
NZ: Blues Chiefs Hurricanes Crusaders Highlanders
AU: Reds Waratahs Rebels Force Rebels
Pacific: Hong Kong Singapore Japan Pasifika US or Argentina
Top 2 of each division play off for winner of the division then top four play off for winner.
That's why it could have stayed as i suggested by playing home and away in your own division for home, away, home for 12 games then say 1st into GF and 2 and 3 playoff for the other spot for 14 total games a season, then playoffs.South African teams would be hard to work in any context due to geographical constraints and time zones.

Not sure how the 12 team comp will work next year. The 2 additional sides will for the most part be based in either aus or nz and will likely be your standard home and away structural, but could be split into 2 conferences who play each other twice (plus finals), and then play the other conference once (whether that be separate comps like this year or a combined system).
We do have some great players coming through the junior ranks but they get taken by bigger clubs here and over seas.Shock horror Joe Powell again how did this peanut play for Australia.
ive only just started to follow union but christ i can tell this guy is no good.
It's just absolutely pointless these trans transman games.
the gap in talent level is staggering.
