1.   SUPER 9 FRANCHISE TEAMS & REGIONS

1.1 NEW DIRECTION NEW COMPETITION

Since Rugby turned professional, the top tier nations have gone through many changes to improve their standing in rugby.

Most important emphasis was put on their local competitions which have grown to become huge spectacles with a global
audience. For years, Samoa rugby has slowly diminished finding it harder to compete against these rugby giants due to the level
their local competitions has risen to.

For too long we have feared changes and stood back and did very little to address the impasse.

We have reviewed the National Provincial Competition (NPC) and found it lacking in these areas:
 The migration of players from outer Unions to the Apia Unions has stunted the quality and growth in outlying Unions and
   created a bottleneck of players in Apia.
 The level of competition has been erratic and sub-standard at best with outer Unions not competing at times due to lack of
   numbers and lack of organization
 The waning of public interest and commercial sponsorship due to the low quality of competition, disciplinary issues due to
   Village/Provincial rivalries and lack of publicity of the tournament.
 Lack of quality in Management, Coaching and Administration without qualified personnel to manage teams in a professional
   way required of this era.
 Lack of a clear pathway for our local players to develop and seek elite status in our national teams having a considerable
   impact on the number of local players in our Manu Samoa 15’s

In 2016, the SRU board recognized the areas lacking and endorsed the changes needed to address all the issues raised and a
working Committee was setup to thoroughly look into all areas to make the change possible and sustainable. SRU also acquired
the assistance of New Zealand Rugby (NZR) to provide information and methodical support using a concept befitting our small
union from concepts of its provincial and regional competitions.

SRU believes that we have the solution to revamp the local competition to bring us closer to the level of the top tier nations with
a “Franchise” concept which is commercially driven and we also believe it will grow bigger and better and in turn attract
Samoans back to support our local 15’s rugby.

The SUPER 9 competition will ensure the following:
 The best players on island are playing in a Competition for an extended period of time consistently at a higher standard.
    Quality instead of Quantity. It removes all social rugby players’ participation.
 Ensure the competition is televised weekly to offer opportunities for sponsors of the tournament and each Franchise to gain
    public exposure
 SRU approved Franchise Board to govern the business of the Franchise
 Only qualified coaches to coach.
 No Village/Provincial names for obvious reasons to erase unnecessary Village/Provincial rivalries.
 Provincial rivalries by naming each franchise in commercially driven names. The SRU will implement a zero tolerance on
    violence and other disciplinary issues both on and off the field
 SRU full ownership of the Event, preparing the operational and logistical side to high standards by incorporating practices
    from the Super 18 concept.
 Provide Franchises with backroom support to ensure smooth running of the daily affairs of the Franchises including proper
    financials are kept, Franchise registering as an incorporated society and securing potential sponsors for each Franchise.

1.2 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The SUPER 9 concept is an exciting revamped format replacing the old NPC Tournament. Where there were 18 sub Unions
competing on and off during the annual NPC Tournament, we now have 9 focused and competitive Franchise teams by
combining key sub Unions.

Eleven weeks of high quality rugby will culminate in all nine super franchises, competing in a nine week round robin series and a
two week knockout rounds. The SUPER 9 tournament is the premier rugby tournament in Samoa and endeavours to deliver
captivating rugby for loyal provincial fans to their new franchise teams.

With the new franchise system, the SUPER 9 presents the participating teams with a competitive and high performance
competition. In addition to resonating with existing fans, the merging of smaller provincial unions has helped level the playing on
the field with the more established Unions in Apia. This has helped improve the quality of competition in the tournament and
has resulted in an enticing spectacle for the local fans to get behind and support.

The SUPER 9’s tournament allows for the development of our local coaches, administrators, referees and executive through
clinics and weekly sessions with the franchises. The final product, which is the rugby played on the field, was a step above the
previous NPC tournament and this was apparent for all who witnessed the 2017 Super 9. There was also growing interest from
local companies to begin sponsoring the Super 9’s franchises.

The free to air TV broadcast of the “Game of the Week” as well as the Semi Finals and Finals allowed the Super 9’s tournament
to reach every area of Samoa and the hosted matches across Samoa also allowed the fans to witness live action rugby on a
weekly basis. This was a huge opportunity for the sponsors to directly engage with the supporters.

The success of the 2017 Super 9 inaugural tournament has paved the way for putting rugby in Samoa at the very forefront of
sports innovation and signified a rebirth of Samoa Rugby. It will only get bigger and better as it has helped improve the on field
rugby and in turn has attracted the old supporters of the game and has reeled in new supporters and has attracted those looking
for entertainment and fun. We are expecting great things for the upcoming 2018 Super 9 tournament.

1.3 FUSION OF SPORT AND ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE FANS & SUPPORTERS

A true celebration of the game cannot exist without a compelling rugby contest that people can engage with and be invested in
the end result, and at the heart of this report is an action packed, hard fought, eleven week tournament.

SRU would look to the franchises to take a lead role in the development of this new format of the competition, whereby we
work closely with each franchise to ensure that the Super 9 tournament is a successful on field product.

The most iconic sporting tournaments are those whose influence extend beyond the stadium or rugby fields and transform
communities by bringing people together in mutual celebration.

The tournament will provide entertainment leading up to the sporting action that encourage fans to arrive early, trigger the
interest of more general event goers, increase awareness and engagement with the sport, and ultimately enhance the overall
event experience, This is our ambition for the Super 9 – a jam packed event with entertainment and activities all celebrating the
game and ensuring that when the first whistle blows, anticipation for the on field action is at its peak.

It is the combination of those two components – at the core a compelling showcase of rugby at its dynamic and exciting best,
augmented by a season long celebration of the game that will cement this tournament as one that every rugby fan, and indeed
every sports fan in the nation will want to attend.

To ensure that all franchises were competitive, some hard calls were made to merge two or three provincial unions to create
one strong franchise.
Only three provincial unions were identified to have the capacity to cope on their own which is Apia (Eels), Apia West (Knights)
and Tuamasaga (Eagles).
