Over the last couple of years we have heard plenty about the crisis in South African and Australian rugby. What we don’t hear about so much are the problems in New Zealand rugby. The changes to the Super Rugby format are as much about the dropping interest amongst Kiwis as anywhere else. It’s not only Super Rugby that’s losing it’s audience but also the All Blacks and Mitre10 Cup. This might be masked by the performances on the pitch but the turn out in the stands is causing sleepless nights for the NRU.
Here are my thoughts on the hidden rugby crisis in New Zealand from my Live Stream on Periscope earlier.
As Patron @EsseHunter said on Twitter “Can’t expect quality service and content for free … easily worth the price of one coffee (or beer) a month. Maybe even more.”
