ARU to delay naming Super Rugby team to be cut




The Australian Rugby Union have announced that they have delayed naming which team will be cut from Super Rugby next season.

The ARU had planned to announce either the Western Force or the Melbourne Rebels as being the team cut from Super Rugby this week but this has now been delayed.

Australian Rugby Union (ARU) Chairman, Cameron Clyne said in a statement that the consultation process on which team will be removed from Super Rugby will now take longer than expected.

“The ARU will undertake due process to ensure that both the Melbourne Rebels and Western Force are given adequate opportunity to present their business case before the Board makes a final decision on which team to be removed,” said Clyne.

“We maintain our commitment to reaching resolution on this matter as soon as possible, however the timeline that we initially anticipated of 48-72 hours will not apply.

“As confirmed on Monday, we have commenced a consultation process with both teams and will provide an update at an appropriate time.”

The Brumbies, Queensland Reds and New South Wales Waratahs are not under threat for their position.
