    They can't right now. Not part of current agreement etc. It is up in 2020.

      I asked this in the beginning of the thread snd no one seems to know. I hope they genuinely come witj €6mln. Hard to see where it will come, seen how broke SARU is.

          This is like having Australia in the eurovision, totally devalues the meaning of the competition.

              Can't see how it will devalue the league, it all seems a bit random on first thought, but the extra revenue and expansion of coverage can't be a bad thing. The way the current league format was laid out with the playoffs at the end of the season wasn't the most exciting so at least this is something different.

                    I welcome the Saffers, throw in the Yanks and Canadians too, then the Welsh and Scots can feel free to piss off and join the English if they wish.

                      This has all the appearances of a desperate measure but sonetimes desperate measures are called for.

                      The existing Pro 12 countries need this to work even more than South Africa. I hope they are now doing everything possible to have the rules of the ECC changed so that a South African side can qualify as long as it finishes in the top 7 of the expanded Pro 14. A medium term objective should be to have the other 4 professional South African sides leave Super Rugby and join the league also.

                        Yeah that's true, the Aussie's actally add something to the party in eurovision...in a league where alot of dead wood (Italian teams, Dragons, Edinburgh) needed to be cut we have decided to add even more crap to the pile, just what we needed.

                          How many Super Rugby matches involving these two sides have you watched this year?

                            A hell of alot more than you if you seriously think these teams will add anything to the league other than money.

                              Thats an amusing answer. Amusing and rubbish.

                              If you had watched them consistently you wouldn't be lumping both teams in together as one side is quite a bit better than the other.

                              But hey keep posting all that hysterical over reaction and negative rubbish if you wish.

                              I hope for your sake you are just on the wind up with these posts and that they are not actual reflections of your outlook.

                                Better than the ****e you wrote, adding these mediocre SA teams that are at best fighting 5-8th spot does absolutely nothing for the league, but hey the sheep on this forum will side with you because your argument is against mine so what's the point on even wasting my time continuing? Any person with even half a fking brain can see this is a disaster waiting to happen, but hey I suppose you will have the balls to admit you were wrong when it does right like I do. I watch them both one is on the level of the Italian teams and one is on the level of the Blues/Edinburgh.
