    SA to get Super Rugby wish

    Cape Town - A scheduled meeting of SANZAR's Executive Committee took place in Sydney on Thursday where the future of Super Rugby was among the agenda items.

    A big topic for discussion was expanding the competition to allow a sixth South African team and a side from Argentina.

    SANZAR CEO, Greg Peters, said via a statement released to the media: "Today's meeting was another important step in deciding the future of Super Rugby. Encouraging progress was made and we now have a preferred model that involves six teams from South Africa and a new team from Argentina.

    "The model will now be taken to the national unions for approval before SANZAR presents its final position to broadcasters and fans in due course."

    Should the proposal be accepted, it would take effect from the 2016 season as the current broadcast deal ends on December 31, 2015.

    This will be good news for South African rugby as it would see all six franchises participate.

    The Kings would return to the competition having opted out of playing promotion/relegation matches against the lowest-ranked South African team in 2014. In exchange, they were promoted to the Currie Cup Premier Division.
