SANZAR reaches deal over expansion

LEADERS of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia rugby (SANZAR) have agreed a structure they hope will prevent the South Africans breaking away in a dispute over Super 14 expansion.

Officials of the three leading southern hemisphere nations met in Dublin yesterday and came up with a solution they hope the South African rugby union will accept. New Zealand and Australia are pressing for an expansion in 2011 to a Super 15 competition played over 22 weeks and leading to a six-team finals format. The South Africans withdrew support because of concern for their domestic competition.
