The squads for the upcoming Super Rugby Competition are to be finalised and confirmed with Sanzar today.

Regional tournament director Johan Botes told the Times newspaper that teams have to be handed in today. The squads are unlimited compared to in prior years when a limited squad was announced. The only limit that still applies will be when a touring team is announced, where Sanzar will only cover 26 players and 9 management people to tour.

This means that the friendlies being played this weekend will have no bearing on the players getting into teams.

  • Sharks can get close to 9 pretty easily, I reckon.

    Coaches: Plum, Bashie, Reece
    Manager: Trevor Barnes
    Doc: Ewoud
    Physio: Dean
    Masseuse: Bob
    Just leaves room for two others, of which one would be the logistics guy (not sure who that is)

  • @beet (Comment 4) : I was wondering about that. Would the strength and conditioning coach go on tour with them? I guess he would…

  • “The squads are unlimited…. ”

    Then why bother naming a squad? My squad for super rugby(any team) is:
    All the contracted players 🙄

  • @Greg (Comment 22) : i think with the new format that leaves the season pretty long, they dont have any idea how big a squad is needed to go throughout the season… 😉

    okey, i tried… 🙂

  • @VanWilder (Comment 23) : But they force the union to name a squad anyway, with no limit, but then go and limit the touring squad? makes no sense to me, but then it is a Friday?

  • @Greg (Comment 23) : They are not limiting the touring squad – just the number of players/management they are paying for. As far as I know, franchise can take more on their own account.

  • @MysticShark (Comment 25) : On re-reading, yeah I see that, so my question again, why even bother announcing a squad, touring or otherwise?

    Without the amount of money we now have, not only can we name every contracted player in the super squad, we can also take all of them, plus wags, plus all the supporters as well as our own car guards on tour 😆

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 24) : From Wikipedia:
    Fluffer is the term applied to a member of a synchronized figure skating team not performing a feature in the programme.

    I don’t get it? 😆 😆

    They are limiting the touring squad.

    The teams may opt to take more than the 9 management at their own expense, but no players.
