The South African Rugby Union said on Monday that after a “positive meeting” on Monday, the possible solutions will be considered by its executive committee before a decision by its general council in July. Saru didn’t say what the options were.
 
The union is scrambling to avoid having to sacrifice one of its current Super 15 outfits after it promised the new Southern Kings a place in 2013, only for organiser Sanzar to refuse to expand the tournament.
 
Possible options are to relegate the lowest-placed South African team, currently the Johannesburg-based Lions, or get two teams to merge. – Sapa-AP
