A proposal to expand the Currie Cup to eight teams in 2014 was withdrawn before being put to the vote at a SARU Special General Council meeting.

A proposal to expand the Currie Cup to eight teams in 2014 was withdrawn before being put to the vote at a SARU Special General Council meeting in Cape Town on Friday.

The decision to withdraw was taken on the basis that although the proposal had majority support, the opposition of six provinces meant that the resolution would not reach the required 75% majority. The Games and Policies committee has been asked to reconsider the proposal.

The upshot of the withdrawal of the motion is that the Currie Cup status quo remains with a top division of six teams.

A proposal to expand the premier domestic rugby competition was rejected last month by a Special General Council meeting of the SARU provinces.

A second motion relating to Super Rugby participation was not put to the vote as it was dependent on the successful passing of the Currie Cup resolution.

The proposal related to the setting aside of a promotion play-off between the Southern Kings and the bottom-placed team in the South African conference of Super Rugby in 2014.
