I do hope the boks go on and win the treble. We are long over due to host the world cup. NZ got it back in 2011 and Asstralia had it back in 2003.
Back to early morning games.
What is worse, they have now decided to expand the bloody comp to 24 teams. Not sure where they going to find those extra teams.
They also want to bring in a last 16, same as what we see in the Heineken cup. Again, and don't know where they going to find these teams.
It is the fan that is getting screwed over yet again for a quick buck.
If you think about it, all these extra games and trams are just to make a quick dollar.
Or, if you a conspiracy theorist they have expanded the comp so that Australia can make it past the pool stages maybe.
When ever the Ausies are involved in rugby, it goes to shit.
Don't forget how they screwed up Super rugby, we had a great comp. But they wanted more team, but the one thing they did to completely screw everyone over was to allow at least on Ausie team to qualify for the semi when they weren't even in the top 10.
I do hope the boks get the treble and Australia never get out the pool stages.
If I was SARU, I would arrange a 5 match series of 5 of our franchise teams playing against 5 of the Kiwis teams. We could host them during the Feb march window and then have a final between the top 2 teams. If it is two kiwi teams, they can travel home.
But I would never ever include Australia in any comp when it comes to rugby.
Their national team is pretty much Fiji B team. With a few sprinkles of tongan players.
Their rugby league has completely taken over rugby in that country.
No point persisting with them
