    South Africa Super Rugby Teams do transfers during the Lockdown period

    What about Ruan Combrinck https://www.news24.com/sport/rugby/superrugby/lions-bringing-back-lionel-mapoe-and-ruan-combrinck-20200618 Do you think he will rejoin the Lions? Don't understand why he wasn't picked for the world cup. Quality player

    South Africa Super Rugby Teams do transfers during the Lockdown period

    Where do you think he will end up? Surely he is too good a player to stay in Japan.

    Pro 14 games were shown on Sky last year but seem to be impossible to watch in the Uk now. Real shame, would love to know how to watch them

    SA teams in Pro??

    This would be amazing, there was talk about only having 5 SA teams but I don't see why they would want to do that.

    Wallabies and All Black stars want South Africa out of Super Rugby

    Pro 18 here we come (only days after CVC get involved) I hope it isn't true but I fear that if CVC get their foot in the door they will try to steal the South African Teams to expand Pro 14 to Pro 18 Would love to see South Africa in both the 7 nations and the Rugby Championship though

    Step closer to pay TV

    Don't the players want to play less games? I don't think they would have to reduce the number of games as the SH countries have 2 competitions that run consecutively (South Africa has the Currie Cup, New Zealand has the Mitre 10 Cup, not sure about Australia) these will take about the same...

    Step closer to pay TV

    I guess they would try to align the club seasons and the international windows so that there is no overlap whatsoever. It would be cool if they could manage it

    What if Aus leave Super rugby?

    The ANC have been in power since 1994 and you have won 3 world cups in that time. SA rugby always seems to find a way to get through the difficult times ( for example 2000 to 2005 and (2015-17)

    South African Junior Players Returning Home

    I note there is a couple of stories about players moving back from France to South Africa. Is this a one-off or is there something bigger happening? Maybe Coronavirus has made people want to go home? Or is it Rassie? https://www.sarugbymag.co.za/wolhuter-returning-to-the-cape/...

    having our pacific players back would be awesome

    I am against this 100% if players can transfer between nations it undermines the whole point of international teams. I am against Project Players for the same reason. I can't imagine the average South African grows up dreaming of playing for Scotland or Ireland

    What if Aus leave Super rugby?

    I guess they could go back to a Super 12 based on 5 NZ Teams, 6 South African Teams and 1 Argentine Team.

    World Rugby Chairman election Beaumont v Pichot.

    I think Pichot running will lead to Beaumont offering more the the SH nations. Maybe changing the residency to 7 years and having a way of getting more money to the SH unions.

    World Club Championships

    Plan is OK but don't like the proposed mix. If there are 4 English and 4 French Clubs there should be 4 South African and 4 New Zealand clubs.

    Jake White appointed as Director of Rugby at Bulls

    He is a World Cup winning coach. Anywhere else in the world he would be treated like a god. However in South Africa it appears that he is almost despised and is not respected at all for his achievements. Why is that?
