Kings: We’re coming to Super Rugby no mistake

2012-07-16 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The Southern Kings have denied a report that they accepted a R40 million offer from the South African Rugby Union (Saru) to postpone their inclusion in Super Rugby to 2016.

The Weekend Argus reported yesterday that the Kings agreed to delay their Super Rugby entry until 2016 in exchange for R40m and Currie Cup Premier Division status from next year.

But the Kings denied this report, which means the Lions — who was the last-placed SA team in Super Rugby this year — are likely to be relegated at the expense of the Eastern Cape franchise for next year’s competition.
