Goneskies. Into liquidation.
Wow didn't see this coming.
Taranaki with a super 15 franchise IMO
Glad they built that covered stadium down there. Good stuff NZRU.
I knew something was up when they excluded the Highlanders from that "own your own rugby team" thing. I assume we're talking about the Highlanders/ Otago rugby in general?
I don't think the Highlanders have anything to do with this.
Yeah nothing to do with the Highlanders. It's the Otago Rugby Union. Something like 2 Million in debt.
Oh ok. It'll still affect the Highlanders however....if they don't have a team in the ITM Cup the Highlanders will slowly become a very weak team. No doubt they'll sort something out for example a self funding team would be an option, surely???
I dunno I haven't been up with the news recently.
Probably will be Southland Stags introduced into the Super 15 Next Season. So North Island dont have all the teams bro
Nah, the Naki has the coin. Money talks
Fuck Naki in the Super 15.
Hurricanes would be the next to fold then
Beauden Barrett (Y)
But seriously, the North Island won't get another team should the Highlanders pull out.
And let's just say they did, it would be the Central Vikings: Naki, Hawkes Bay, Manawatu - it wouldn't work, won't happen anyway. The Highlanders probably won't be on the out from the sounds of it.
Isn't Canterbury on South Island, or am I just imagining things?
Wouldnt be enough, talent will go elsewhere and the Highlanders will end up shit
