THE future of big-time rugby in Port Elizabeth could be decided today when South African rugby bosses gather in Cape Town to discuss plans to enlarge the Currie Cup Premier Division from six to eight teams to accommodate the EP Kings and Pumas.
"I am sure that an enlarged Premier Division will be one of the main topics of discussion at the meeting," Kings boss Cheeky Watson said.
Watson will travel to Cape Town with Kings chief executive Charl Crous for a meeting that is vital for the future success of the union, which campaigns in the second-tier First Division.
"It is also in the interests of the Lions that a decision is made because it could secure their position in Super Rugby for two years. It is vital that the Kings get top-flight rugby in the interests of the future of our young players," Watson said.
