SR is dead. Go north.

If we wont then use the threat of going north to bargain a new deal where we bring back the glory days of CC. Play full CC (incl Boks) with semi and final at the start of the year. Play internationals thereafter. Top 2 teams from each country goes into a Super 6 + 2 invitational teams. Players not included in this goes on auction. Back home those players not in Super 8 join a new Club Champs to strengthen our club rugby.

We first lost our club rugby and we are now losing our CC. Focus of Saru in meetings should be to address these two issues.

No way.
When the Crusaders play is Australia they leave on the Friday afternoon and are back at home on the Sunday morning. Same as the Bulls playing in CT.
The Lions were in NZ and Aus for 5 weeks playing 4 matches.
The Crusaders traveled to SA for 1 match and then straight to Argentina for another. They were away for 3 weeks only. That additional 2 weeks living out of a suitcase makes a huge difference.

Which is like saying SA has SSC

Better option would be to show him the door not sure if the hiding accomplishes anything.

NZ justice system not likiely to get swayed either, I suspect he may well get some jail time if this story is correct. Its also come out that Mafi has history of violent behaviour against team mates and staff. Either way if this is true he should lose his Japan contracts.

Sheez, assault with intent to cause bodily harm and at a push even intent to kill based on Timani's recall of events. Call to his brother who can attest to his mental state, fear, doctor's report to confirm injuries. Although circumstantial and no witnesses in his corner, Timani has a case and if what he states proves to be what actually transpired, I hope that Mafi gets his lemon curds. That is disgusting.
