Have the SR teams lost interest?
EXCLUSIVE: The debate around whether or not Super Rugby remains relevant and interesting rages on, as it would seem that the final round robin matches did nothing to enhance the tournament’s image.
That round of fixtures saw numerous teams having already secured their playoff spot – or being out of contention – which made for a fairly dull round, as the already-qualified teams fielded so-called second stringers while those who were out of contention, played around with different combinations.
The Late Tackle team has a look at the playoffs but not before they touch on the feeling around the competition.
