The Australian Rugby Union will forge ahead with plans to cut either the Melbourne Rebels or Western Force from Super Rugby after members endorsed the move at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) in Sydney on Tuesday.
Chairman of the ARU Cameron Clyne told the Sydney Morning Herald "there is no question that being CEO of Australian Rugby is a hard job".
The other resolution of the meeting did get the green light though, with a motion passed to "facilitate a discussion around the establishment of a Super Rugby Commission".
"We've had that commission in the past so we're very comfortable to have that discussion and work out as to whether we do establish that in the future", Clyne said.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said yesterday he remained loyal to Pulver, whose position has come under increasing speculation and scrutiny because of the ARU's decision to axe an Australian Super Rugby team and its handling of the process.
It was the Rugby Union Players' Association and Victorian Rugby Union who had called for an EGM last month, after they were both left frustrated by the ongoing uncertainty in naming which Australian franchise would be cut.
With New South Wales and Queensland states holding six of the 15 votes, and set to gain from the axing of one of the country's five Super Rugby teams, there was little prospect of the resolution carrying.
Another chapter in Australia's sorry Super Rugby saga will be written today, but it remains to be seen whether it will expedite or further delay a long awaited decision.

Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen also were left unprotected. The expansion Vegas Golden Knights must spend at least to the salary floor in their first season.
Cespedes missed six weeks with a strained hamstring before returning June 10 and playing eight consecutive games (six starts). Cole allowed just that one run and three total hits over seven innings as the Pirates blasted the NL-Central leading Brewers.
Similarly, the major index providers should be keen to represent this economic reality through their indices. Adding A shares to the index would trigger inflows into China's domestic stock markets due to fund mandates.
Sekulow again repeated that he can not read minds. "You're asking me now questions about what people are thinking in their minds", Sekulow told Wallace . "No, he's not being investigated", Sekulow interjected.
The one thing that didn't materialize was a large number of trades happening involving players teams didn't want to expose. Vatanen, a fifth-year player, won't be ready for the start of next season after having surgery to fix a shoulder injury.
