Super Rugby format bad for SA

I think the proposed Super rugby format is going in the wrong direction. I much preferred the old format where all teams played each other once a season. Playing strong NZ and Australian opposition is good for SA rugby and I think diluting the field with another weak SA team (and two newcomers) will harm SA rugby.

Adding the sub-standard Kings was a poor politically-based decision. The do not even perform well in the Currie Cup let alone Superrugby.

Hopefully sense will prevail and the public outcry will cause a rethink.
