Some big news breaking on the possibility of a Rugby Super Club game being staged
Following reports in some sections of the media, the EPCR have confirmed that it is actively formulating a strategy on how best to organise and market a match in the future between the winners of the European Rugby Champions Cup and the winners of the Super Rugby competition.
"As EPCR continues to develop the concept, it has to not least ensure that any such match would be incorporated into the global season at the appropriate time and that it would also involve full-strength squads from both competing clubs to reflect the elite nature of the Champions Cup and Super Rugby tournaments," an EPCR statement read.
"To that end, EPCR is in discussions with SANZAR, which runs the Super Rugby competition, with a view to working on a joint proposal regarding the match."
With planning at an early stage, EPCR will be making no further comment until it is in a position to do so at a future date.
