Does NZ rugby need SANZAR? Good question. Not sure they do. For me, it would work a lot better with NZ playing Australia and maybe the Pacific nations. There would be a loss of revenue but the travel in the Super 14 is totally outrageous. I say, let it go, and form a new thing with Australia, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Japan. The AB's can play a couple of tests off shore to make the money that's needed. There would be a new level of interest in rugby if that happened. Bring back some tours. Cut South Africa free. Do it!
