East London - A delegation from the South African Rugby Union met the developers of a proposed new rugby competition in East London on Sunday.

The five-man SARU delegation received a formal presentation from Rassie Erasmus and Frikkie Erasmus on a proposal to hold a pre-season rugby tournament in South Africa in January 2012.

Mr Oregan Hoskins, the president of SARU, made it clear at the meeting that any such tournament would require the sanction of SARU before it could be held.

The SARU delegation will report back to the 14 provincial unions on the meeting as well as to key stakeholders, such as the International Rugby Board and SANZAR.
