Global re­vamp plan

Hawke's Bay Today - - SPORT -

RUGBY LEAGUE: The NRL has un­veiled a plan to re­vamp the in­ter­na­tional cal­en­dar, and it doesn’t in­clude any fur­ther Denver league tests. The shake-up could see the Ki­wis play Pa­cific sides dur­ing the mid­sea­son stand­alone rep­re­sen­ta­tive round over the next two years, leav­ing the likes of fu­ture in­de­pen­dently pro­moted US-based tests in doubt. The NRL has de­tailed plans to launch a new Ocea­nia Cup in 2019 fea­tur­ing round-robin matches be­tween New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga to be played in June and Oc­to­ber.
