    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?
  9. Ari PM Jackson

    I don't think the Highlanders have anything to do with this.
  10. 99* JJ Ritchie

    Yeah nothing to do with the Highlanders. It's the Otago Rugby Union. Something like 2 Million in debt.
  11. Rego RS Hutchinson

    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
  13. morgieb MC Burridge

    Haha ouch.
  14. SM MD Dorn

    Nah, the Naki has the coin. Money talks
  15. Humble SA Humble

    Fuck Naki in the Super 15.

    Hurricanes would be the next to fold then
  16. Rego RS Hutchinson

    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?

  19. Roaddogg AJ Izett

  20. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Wouldnt be enough, talent will go elsewhere and the Highlanders will end up shit
