Veteran Western Force flanker Matt Hodgson has warned Australia will be hit by a player exodus if SANZAAR does not make a quick decision on the future of Super Rugby.
And he says clubs will struggle to re-sign and attract new players in the current unsettled climate.
It is understood managers of players from clubs under threat are already talking to rival teams in Australia and overseas about next season.
Force foundation member Hodgson said speculation was damaging the Melbourne Rebels, Brumbies and Force whose futures are under a cloud.
“This is hurting Australian rugby,” Hodgson said.
