World Sacha Baron Cohen had to fear for his life
Super Rugby as we know it all but over after South Africa votes to quit, send teams to Europe instead
Super Rugby as fans know it is almost certainly over, after the South African Rugby Union (SARU) voted at a special general meeting to send their top four franchise sides to Europe’s Pro Rugby instead of the southern hemisphere competition. Two South African teams, the Cheetahs and Kings, currently ply their trade in Pro14, which is also made up of teams from Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy.

Cohen had to use his entire body weight to prevent someone who had pulled the door open from the car. "I was lucky to get out of there in one piece."
In his article, Cohen points out that the coming weeks will tell whether the United States is equally lucky. What is meant is the upcoming presidential election on November 3rd. He also speaks out clearly against US President Donald Trump (74) and explains how dangerous conspiracy theories can be.
