The Australian Rugby Union says that they are committed to Super Rugby transformation as the way forward for the SANZAR alliance.

The Dominion Post reported in New Zealand (HERE) of a suggestion that ARU Managing Director and CEO John O’Neill was ‘briefed’ at the weekend on plans ‘ drawn up by representatives from a number of Kiwi provinces ‘ that support replacing Super 14 with a trans-Tasman competition.

‘The understanding that I was briefed on this group’s plans is incorrect,’ said Mr O’Neill.

Mr O’Neill said he was casually handed a paper and did not read it for two days, adding that alternative competition structures ‘cross my desk all the time’.

‘Expanding Super Rugby is what the game needs,’ he said.

‘There is no deviation from that aim.’ O’Neill finished off.
