Special General Meeting called to decide Super Rugby participants

SA Rugby has called a special General Meeting for next month to confirm the four South African entrants to a revised Super Rugby competition from 2018.

The meeting will take place in Cape Town on 7 July, 2017.

The General Meeting has the constitutional responsibility for “determining the SA teams to participate in Super Rugby.”

Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said the Special General Meeting would decide on a proposal from the Executive Council which, in turn, would have received a recommendation on the participants from the Franchise Committee, whose membership is representatives of the Vodacom Super Rugby teams.

The proposal will also be debated by the non-franchise committee – comprising the CEOs of the 14 provincial rugby unions – before reaching the Special General Meeting.
