SA teams to learn fate on July 7

It was announced in April that Super Rugby would be trimmed from 18 teams to 15 going forward, with two of the South African representatives set for the chop.

That move will leave South Africa with four sides in the southern hemisphere competition, while Australia will also see one of its teams cut.

The Cheetahs and Southern Kings are widely expected to be the sides that lose their place, but the definite identity of the teams at risk remains unclear.
