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".

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.

"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.

A French journalist has succumbed to wounds he sustained in a landmine explosion in Iraq's northern city of Mosul, according to the French consulate in Erbil.

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.

The South African rugby union has called a special meeting for July 7 to propose which two of its teams will be dropped - nearly certainly the Cheetahs and Kings.

El comunicado añadió que los cambios locales que sean necesarios "los seguirá decidiendo de manera soberana el pueblo cubano".

The ARU's legal skirmishes with the Rebels and Force mean they will enter mediation with the Rebels later in June over a damages claim, and an arbitration hearing with the Force on 31 July.
