Currie Cup to stay with 6 teams for 2014

South African Rugby officials have advised that a proposal to expand the Currie
Cup Premier Division to eight teams in 2014 was withdrawn before being put to
the vote at a Special General Council Meeting of the South African Rugby Union
(SARU) in Cape Town on Friday.

The decision to withdraw was taken on the basis that although the proposal
had majority support the opposition of six provinces meant that the resolution
would not reach the required 75% majority.

The Games and Policies committee have been asked to reconsider the proposal.

The upshot of the withdrawal of the motion is that the Currie Cup status quo
remains with a top division of six teams.

A second motion relating to Super Rugby participation was not put to the vote
as it was dependent on the successful passing of the Currie Cup resolution.

The proposal related to the setting aside of a promotion play-off between the
Southern Kings and the bottom-placed team in the South African conference of
Super Rugby in 2014.
