Reports going around that from 2022 there will be a 12 side super rugby comp, 5 NZ sides, 5 Aus sides, a team based out of Suva and a pacific island team made up of Samoan’s and Tongan’s based out of Auckland but committed to taking homes games to Samoa and Tonga.

Also reports that Rugby Australia has a new TV rights deal with super rugby returning to FTA with nine showing 1 game a week FTA and all Wallabies tests FTA and all other games being streamed on STAN.

Further reports that South Africa have agreed to stay in the rugby championship until at least 2030

great to see the force back next season. question is will the australian teams play against nz teams later in the year. are the teams still obliged to play against the south african teams next year as well as well as the jaguares?

will definitely be getting a force membership as well.

First aus and nz will have their own domestic comps and then later on there will be a separate short trans Tasman comp involving all 10 aus & kiwi teams.

I'm pretty sure the saffa's will just run their own comp again with the Jags involved.

Yeah as mentioned both have there own 10 week comp plus finals then a 5 week trans Tasman comp plus finals. This is only a one year thing as they want more time to establish the two pacific sides and for borders to open up after corona
