New Zealand Rugby insists it's committed to playing the Rugby Championship in full, despite serious concerns over the tournament end-date.
SANZAAR released the six game schedule this morning, with the All Blacks playing Australia on December 12th.
That would see the All Blacks still in managed quarantine for Christmas.
NZR chief executive Mark Robinson told Simon and Phil they were working towards the prior weekend, but commercial considerations seem to be at play.
He says they plan to keep talking with SANZAAR and Rugby Australia around that date.
