    Just that really. I can't wait to go back to 14 "strong" teams playing each other in a straight round robin. The Sunwolves are likely to be even worse next year as they are shutting down.

    Would be best all round?

    Why you putting a question mark in a statement?

    I can see SA moving another team to Europe potentially, especially if the Champions cup and Challenge cup allows the Kings and cheetahs in.

    Delayed toss will offer you some relief no doubt.

    I can't see any of the original 4 Super Rugby Teams moving north. Also where would they go. Pro 14 is probably full.

    Pro 14 is most likely looking to expand more if possible.

    If Pro 14 was to expand I guess they would take the Pumas and the Griquas, I just don't see any of the Lions, Sharks, Stormers or Bulls joining.

    Sunwolves will be scrapped because the Japanese rugby will not pay for it if it’s not in super Rugby.Most South African super 14 teams will stay in super Rugby they won’t join a pro 14 without European champions cup qualification now currently won’t happen.

    The Sunwolves will be a Joke next year. Who will want to join a sinking ship. I would be surprised if they win a single game next year.
    Good news for the Australian Teams next year. Guaranteed 8 points, 4 point head start on the Argentina, New Zealand and South African teams
