Cape Town - The Southern Hemisphere’s rugby governing body has changed its name from SANZAR to SANZAAR to formally recognise Argentina's participation in the joint venture.

"Their top-four finish at the Rugby World Cup and now full participation in Super Rugby adds further strength and prestige to the existing competition structures,” commented SANZAAR CEO Andy Marinos.

“As the top four international teams from RWC 2015 look to further grow and establish Southern Hemisphere as a dominant force in world rugby, we are all very excited to see what lies in store in the coming year.”

The Super Rugby competition, which starts on February 26, has been expanded to 18 teams, with Argentina’s Jaguares, Japan’s Sunwolves and South Africa’s Southern Kings.
