With the shock that the Lions have been kicked out of SupeRugby still sinking in, the question now being asked is who voted for us and who voted against us.
Information that I’m receiving – which is still to be confirmed, is that the big unions all had a gentlemans agreement that if the Kings get in, they would all go out.
It does seem that the Bulls and Sharks voted for the Lions to remain in SupeRugby, with all the other unions voting against us, including the Cheetahs and WP.
If this is the case, which at the moment seems to be so, the Bulls and Sharks will have my unconditional support in next season’s SupeRugby. This will just enhance my hatred for the WPRU, and I will surely support any team the Cheetahs, WP and Kings play against. Even if they are Australian or New Zealand outfits.
Quade Cooper on Twitter tweeted the following after hearing the news.
“Got to feel for all the Johannesburg Lions plays and staff. I hope ya all are able to continue to work/play and haven’t been put out of jobs.”
It also seems that Cheeky wants to appeal the 1 year inclusion and wants a 3 year guarantee. Next he will insist that they are guaranteed at least 5 victories in SupeRugby 2013.
