The middle of Ireland “The42“took out a note in which he states that Jaguars I would be in talks to play the Pro14 (for next season it will be Pro16), a European competition that will now have four teams of South Africa.
Since Super Rugby 2020 was called off, the news has not been good for Jaguares. The Argentine franchise could not get involved in any SANZAAR competition and there have been several rumors. New Zealand and Australia created their domestic tournaments and South Africa confirmed their participation in the now called Europe Pro 16 with four teams: Bulls, Lions, Sharks and Stormers.
According to Irish media, Jaguares would be in the process of joining the same competition as South Africa. In addition to stating what was said, they assure that the Argentine team would base in Bilbao, Spain.
If the inclusion of Jaguares in Pro 16 is approved, it would take approximately two years to complete. According to European sources, private equity firm CVC, which recently acquired a 28% stake in Pro14, is interested in further expansion. They believe that the possible inclusion of the Jaguars would likely generate more television revenue in the competition.
