Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has revealed plans that New Zealand has for a 10 week Super Rugby if the return to sport is allowed in the country.
We will just play local games, derby games as we call it, so it will be 10 weeks home and away, and the first (team) – top of the table wins, So it’s pretty brutal,” Robertson told Will Greenwood’s Podcast on SkySports.
“If we start June, July, August – we will get the Super in and we will go into the NPC (provincial competition) and just finish later in the year.”
New Zealand rugby has already cancelled a host of domestic tournaments across the country because of the effects the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the country.
The union has also implemented a host of pay cuts across various bodies in order to remain afloat given the lack of revenue brought on by the postponement of the tournament.
The All Blacks incoming tour against Wales and Scotland also looks highly unlikely at this stage which could pave way for a revised domestic calendar.
