Eight team Currie Cup dream still alive

The Kings and Pumas’ dream of both playing in the Currie Cup next year, guaranteed without the need of a promotion / relegation match, is still a possibility.

This according to a report on Sport24.com, which indicates that the bigger unions are in favour of this motion and would like to arrange a revote.

What exactly the bigger unions will be getting out of an extended eight team Currie Cup is unknown to me, but it seems that they are pushing for both the Pumas and the Kings to be included. These two teams would have been included purely on results over the last few years, with the Kings pushing for some sort of consistency to be able to build a decent squad ahead of their next inclusion into Super Rugby. These teams have both fortified this stance by finishing first and second on the Currie Cup B-Division log, as well as facing each other in the final after winning their respective semi-finals.

The original vote came down to a 19/10 split in favour of the expansion, a revote would require only 3 unions changing their votes to be in favour of change which would see a 75% majority split at 22/7.

No further details regarding this vote is mentioned at this stage, and we can safely say that news like this is only there to stir further emotion. But the fact remains, if the bigger unions pressure SARU into allowing a revote, we could still see some change before the Currie Cup kicks off once again in 2014.
