Zapping World Fifteen Rugby: Top 15 highest paid players
Stupor in the rugby of the southern hemisphere: Australia would have been part of his desire to leave Super Rugby, and to create his own national competition. That change could take place in 2024, with Australia tied until 2023. But Australian rugby boss Hamish McLennan has reportedly discussed the plan with New Zealand rugby boss Stewart Mitchell.
This announcement surprised the coach of the Wallabies, Dave Rennie, who is formally opposed to this idea. For him, it is essential that the Australian and New Zealand clubs continue to meet in the Super Rugby Pacific, as can be read on Rugbypass.
I think it is good for both countries that we play in this competition.
I think this season has been excellent, and our teams have been more competitive. I think it’s good for them, as much as it is for us. I would like this to continue.
New Zealanders are some of the best players in the world. And we always want to rub shoulders with the best. That’s how you progress and test yourself, so it’s important.
