The future format of domestic rugby may not be confirmed until next year.

Whether the Mitre 10 Cup's two-tiered Championship and Premiership format should be retained, or the 14 unions instead split into North and South pools with four crossover games was discussed at this week's New Zealand Rugby board meeting.

CEO Mark Robinson says they'll go back with a range of information to provincial unions next week, meaning it might not be until after Christmas that there's confirmation.
