    Maybe they were also investigating the possibility of a pre-season/trial game there too, but that hasn't been feasible?

    2023 Super Rugby Pacific draw

    Each team plays 14 regular season matches
    Round 1 features traditional rivalry fixtures
    Round Two is the Super Round in Melbourne
    All teams play all other teams in the competition
    All teams play three extra ‘rivalry’ games which create home and away mini-series

    Interesting that our rivally teams are:
    Rebels (a given)
    Reds (orginating history)
    Highlanders (? not sure but I suppose we have a better record against them than most NZ teams so we will take it)

    Having a closer look at the fixtures for the Australian Teams looks like we have drawn the short straw again (Surprise, Surprise!!!)

    Rebels, Reds, Brumbies, Tahs all have seven home games.

    Blues and Crusaders also have six and Chiefs, Highlanders and Hurricanes seven home games

    We are the only Australian team to play NZ opposition twice (Highlanders)

    Rebels double games are Brumbies, Tahs and Force

    Reds double games are Force, Brumbies, Drua

    Brumbies double games are Tahs, Reds and Rebels

    Tahs double games are Brumbies, Drua, Rebels.

    On the bright side we get an extra opportunity at knocking over a NZ team.
