Sunwolves bow out

Japan’s Sunwolves bowed out of Super Rugby yesterday as they failed to join an Australian offshoot of the coronavirus-hit tournament. The Sunwolves, who are being kicked out of Super Rugby at the end of the season, said Australian officials had told them they won’t be able to take part. The series between Australia’s four Super Rugby teams — Queensland Reds, NSW Waratahs, ACT Brumbies and Melbourne Rebels — along with the previously axed Western Force, is set to kick off on July 3. Super Rugby, which also includes teams from New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina, has been on hold since March. The decision ends a nearly five-year run in Super Rugby for the Sunwolves, who won only nine games in that time.
