'Super Rugby' to restart in NZ on June 13th

Post by Ali's Choice »

NZR has announced that it's professional season will resume with a 10 Super Rugby week, 5 team comp featuring its existing five SR franchises. A date hasn't been set for a return, but it could be sooner rather than later. Training and playing will be able to resume once the government's restrictions ease to level 2. Great to see NZR with some concrete plans for a restart and I hope this comp is televised in Australia.

Professional sport closer to green light under alert level 2
Richard Knowler
14:24, May 07 2020

Professional sport is edging closer to making a return under Covid-19.

On Thursday the Government unveiled its proposals under alert level 2 raising hopes that fans - albeit from the comfort of their lounge chairs - will be able to watch sport once again.

Cabinet will make its final decision on whether New Zealand will move from level 3 to 2 on Monday and although the change will not be immediate, professional sports competitions will be poised to relaunch once given the green light.

Rugby and netball are among the codes set to benefit most from the protocols, with all competitions suspended because of the pandemic.

Super Rugby, which is likely to be played in a domestic format over 10 weeks and won’t start until mid-June at the earliest, and the ANZ Premiership netball competition are the most high-profile tournaments that will restart under level 2.

The Warriors, who play in the NRL, have already relocated to Tamworth in New South Wales and will play their matches in Australia in the foreseeable future.

Football Federation Australia is readying itself to restart its competition, having advised clubs to prepare for a resumption in one central location - probably Sydney - in August.

Indoor and outdoor gatherings will be limited to a maximum of 100 people. Although Kiwis will be permitted to travel further out of their bubbles, the doors will not be opened for sports events.


NZ Rugby CEO Mark Robinson confirmed players would need three to four weeks to adequately prepare with contact training before matches could commence but was hopeful games in a "best case scenario'' would be played next month.

"I know the players would prefer to be playing in front of our fans, but the health and safety of Kiwis must come first,'' Robinson said.

He stressed that the health and safety of everyone involved was our number one priority.

“While we want to see our game up and running as soon as possible, we won’t make decisions that will put anyone at risk. We have always said we will take the Government’s lead on when it is safe to return.”

A working group made up of players, Investec Super Rugby clubs, Provincial Unions, the NZRPA and NZR had considered all the possible competition options and timings which were dependent on when alert levels dropped and rugby could resume.

Robinson said they were still working through the details of the Mitre 10 Cup and Farah Palmer Cup competitions, but they wanted to preserve the integrity of these competitions where they could.

A decision on the All Blacks series in July against Wales and Scotland will be made in the next fortnight.

On Thursday morning New Zealand Rugby Players Association boss Rob Nichol warned Super Rugby clubs could not expect to assemble for at least a couple of days if level 2 is declared on Monday.

He was of the view that professional sport should be played at level 2.

Sights such as this will be welcomed under level 2. Abigail Latu-Meafou of the Magic shoots under pressure from Katrina Rore of the Pulse during an ANZ Premiership game last year.

"We've done significant risk assessment work, significant return to training and playing protocol,'' Nichol said.

"We've got things ready to go. I am very confident that our environments and our people will operate in a way, both within the playing and training environment, but also within their personal lives, that would actually be at a higher level than level 2.''

Nichol said the protocols around athletes, the cameramen, officials, trainers and coaches will ensure that in their personal lives they will be operating at a level higher than most.

''The risk associated with a cluster or community transmission occurring in those environments when everyone is going to be temperature tested every day, monitored, instant 24-7 access to medical personnel, the risk of an outbreak is so low, to be perfectly honest, that I think it would be very difficult to say that you could not play professional sport at level 2,'' he said.

"I think it should be allowed, the athletes think it should be allowed."

NZ Rugby and NZ Netball will welcome the proposed changes, and provided they are approved, it will enable them to give broadcasters content to beam out to viewers.

Netball New Zealand Chief Executive Jennie Wyllie said the organisation was pleased to be given permission to move forward with the return of the country’s elite domestic competition at level 2.

“Both netball and rugby have been working closely with the Government on what training and playing at level two could look like, and a return to play plan for the ANZ Premiership will be underway once the Government confirms the country is ready to move to level two,” she said.

“We have always said we will take the Government’s lead on when it is safe to return and now our focus turns to ensuring we have a safe environment for that to happen.”

Sport and Recreation Minister Grant Robertson said it was "paramount'' the return to competitive professional sport was done safely.

"This means ensuring there are systems in place to implement public health measures such as contact tracing and hygiene requirements to create a safe environment,” Robertson said.

"This will mean some modifications to training, play and competition will be necessary, and Sport NZ is working with the major sporting codes and WorkSafe on how these are put into practice.''

Robertson said some sports will be able to return to play more quickly than others while the necessary health requirements, modifications and restrictions on non-essential inter-regional travel are worked through.

“Sports bodies are putting in a lot of work to get the pro-sport leagues going. But let me be clear that competitions will only start when all the public health guidelines are met, so we will continue to support these sports as they work through the necessary requirements to resume play safely.”

I guarantee it will be broadcast in Australia, with Fox Sports desperate for content and still holding the Super Rugby rights for this year...

I'm guessing this will be run as a stand alone comp, with no carry over points from the SR comp that was partially completed? That would be understandable given it's effectively a completely different comp, just with the same NZ teams. With no tests, this and a potential North Island vs South Island game will be the pinnacle of Rugby for 2020 for NZ rugby fans.

Live sports without crowds isn't ideal, but I will be watching every game of this comp, even those not featuring the Crusaders.

Dust off the bandwagon, it's the Blues year this year!

Wonder if the lack of games this year will help extend a couple of players careers - or will players get ground to dust as unions try and get as many games in as soon as international travel is available

:lol: Geez that a big call AC, EVEN the Crusader's games, hell you must be desperate. :lol:
Suppose that means I will have to watch the Canes!!

Like you I can't bloody wait, and I thinking it a new comp too so start points again. Geez it be a bloody brutal comp all NZ derbies, and if they follow that with a North/South (oh yes please) I thinking there will be some battered players around!! I agree North/South would be pinnacle game for kiwis even if there a Bledisloe series in November as seems a bit of a hope, and maybe something against some PI teams as being thrown around!

Are you on Meth?

10 weeks means they would play each other twice, home and away. With two by rounds given the odd number of teams. If you are going troll, please at least make sure your Maths is at a Year 1 standard?

When Jacinda announced we were allowed to travel domestically I jumped up and yelled and fist pumped. When she said rugby could resume, I shed some tears. I didn't think I'd be that emotional but it brought me a sense of joy I haven't felt in weeks. Out of context I wouldn't be so enthused with the 5 NZ teams playing each other, but considering what we have been through, I'll take whatever I can get and I can't wait for it to start up.

It's the benefit of operating in a country like NZ with extremely low rates of COVID 19 infection.

To be honest I would be relaxed if it wasn't on Fox, then we would be able to get rugby pass here in Oz, and I wouldn't have to have Fox or any of it's offshoots, as I watch bugger all else in sport!!

What will be cool about this comp is that all the players will be on roughly a level playing field in terms of preparation and conditioning.

Normally in NZ Super Rugby squads, 60-70% of the players have full off-seasons, plus some pre-season games, and hit the ground running hard when the SR season begins. These are typically players who do not play All Black or NZ Maori Rugby.

The other 30-40% of players, who play rep footy, have virtually no off season, no pre-season matches, and are playing catch up for much of the SR season. This is why there are always early season calls for the previously unheralded player x or player y to make the AB's, because they are outshining their All Black teammates, only for their form to fall away and turn to shit as the season progresses.

For this comp all players will be starting on a level playing field, and I find that both intriguing and exciting.

I'd personally prefer they sacked off SR and just concentrated on provincial rugby. The whole 5 team thing feels a bit forced.

That being said I guess there are commercial considerations in play.

I for one welcome this development. Kudos to NZ for the exemplary way in which they dealt with the virus. I gladly welcome the idea of finally having rugby back on the TV on a Saturday, even if it is only teams from the 3rd best test side in the world.

20 games across 10 weeks suggests that there will be no final - rather it will just be a soccer style competition, with the winner being the top of the table.

If that's the case, I think I'd prefer it to be without bonus points for the main table ranking:

3 points for a win
1 point for a draw

Bonus points to be calculated as normal, but not included in your points tally on the table - stored in a separate column and only applied as a tie breaker if two teams finish the season on the same points. (i.e. you can't win the competition with less wins/draws than the team that comes second).

And its second best test side :x
