ABOUT US

Future of Super Rugby was started in November 2014, to encourage public discussion regarding Super Rugby's then-planned 2016 expansion. A video was produced that identified the following issues:

  •  that a Japanese side would not be competitive

  • that the tournament structure was overly complex

  • that a Pacific Island side should be included, and how that could be structured.

Sure enough, each of these predictions eventuated, and following difficult 2016 and 2017 seasons, SANZAAR was forced to make changes.

As of 2018, SANZAR is investigating how to structure the competition from 2021 onwards (to coincide with the competition's next broadcasting deal).

It is the intention of this website to present a feasible proposal for how SANZAAR could establish a Pacific Island franchise, that would enhance the competition.
