I wouldn't use the term "threat". I think it's more a bargaining strategy. For years SA got the shortest straw and was heavily outvoted on ideas and plans in SANZAR, and got a raw deal with the money even though we had the most contributions. We just got fed up and now we have the chance to look at both sides and see what will be the best in our future, and not someone else's. I just think that it's way too premature for us to give up on Super Rugby completely. We have a lot more to lose than to gain by leaving this competition, even though there are plenty jumping on the band wagon that Super Rugby is dead.
