Aust yet to sign for new season

Rugby Australia is yet to sign for the new season of the Super Rugby competition which will have the inclusion of Moana Pasifika and Fijian Drua.

Rugby Australia is hailing the Super Rugby AU season a success and is still working to lock in the competition structure for 2022 with an expanded trans-Tasman format most likely.

Rugby Australia boss Andy Marinos told the second year of the domestic competition has been a hit with fans while it’s also managed to discover some new stars.

Marinos says the popularity of a domestic league has given the Rugby Australia board “something to ponder”, however it’s more likely a 12-team trans-Tasman model will be used in 2022.

That includes five teams each from Australia and New Zealand plus new entries Moana Pasifika and Fiji Drua.

He hoped the format would be decided by the end of June.

Meanwhile Marinos is confident the COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney wouldn’t impact the inaugural trans-Tasman Super competition which is set to get underway next week.
