New Zealand Rugby's provincial unions have voted unanimously in favour of a deal with us investment firm silver lake.

The deal's worth nearly $390 million dollars; in exchange for a 12.5 % stake.

But of course, the deal isn't complete.

It requires sign off from the NZ Rugby Players’ Association, and negotiations between the association and NZ Rugby are on hold.

Brent Impey is the NZ Rugby Chairman and he joined Simon and Phil to tell them he has issues with the comments made by David Kirk.
