Rugby Australia and New Zealand Rugby would have agreed on a new format for the dispute of the new edition of the Super Rugby. It would be similar to the one used before the start of the pandemic.
As reported by the NZ Herald, both entities put aside their differences and would have sealed a new way to continue the tournament. Each of the 12 franchises would face each other once, before playing three additional free-for-all matches.
After the 14-game regular season, the top eight in the standings would advance to the quarterfinals. The highest ranked team from each crossing would be the location for these keys.
In addition, it only remains to define how the three additional meetings will be determined. On the one hand, they could be organized by lottery, while on the other hand, they ensure that Rugby Australia would like them to be between national franchises, since Super Rugby Trans-Tasman left a disadvantage for the Australian teams.
