    after COVID which GRR teams still exist?

    Anyone have any idea of the repucussiins COVID has had on the sustainability of some teams. Do they all still exist. Rumours circulating 2 or 3 may have gone under?

    Is this the end if GRR without firing a single shot?

    Yah, their operations at home in SA are under strain. I reckon their Malaysia venture is done and won't return, even if GRR somehow revived.

    China Lions might be a bit different. The BoP link up with CRFA happened before GRR was created. While the "Lions" won't be playing in China anytime soon, I'm not sure the underlying alliance is dissolved. They were still hosting players, male and female, in programs in NZ before the pandemic, and BoP itself is not bust.

    Ultimately, Rapid Rugby's future is fully dependent on what Andrew Forrest wants to do with it.

    Might depend on what Andrew Forrest's Chinese masters want to do.
