Rugby Fans Are Not Happy With The News That Two Super Rugby Teams Will Join The PRO12

News broke this morning that South Africa’s Southern Kings and the Cheetahs could join the PRO12 in September.

Reports had circled for a number of months that Springbok or Australian teams could join the league in the future but many had expected to take several years for it to materialise if it ever did.

However, BBC Sport Wales are claiming both franchises will, in fact, join teams from the home nations this September.

The news isn’t sitting well with rugby fans and most are very apprehensive about the addition of more fixtures and challenging logistics.

Over on our Facebook page, you have been equally unimpressed with this morning’s developments.

It remains to be seen how exactly the expansion will work but all should become clearer in the coming weeks with the governing body Sanzaar officially cutting the size of the Super Rugby league on July 7th. News of how and when the Cheetahs and Kings will make the move should then filter out.

For the time being, it’s hard not to agree with some of the above comments with the logistics of the new fixtures surely set to cause chaos in a league that is already struggling.
