Southern hemisphere rugby conglomerate SANZAR has called for expressions of interest from applicants wishing to join an expanded Super 15 tournament in 2011.

This is the first step in the application process to determine the location of the 15th team, with a decision expected to be made by November.

Geographical location and the time zone of the new team will be a key consideration for SANZAR as the 15th team will play in the Australian conference.

Melbourne and western Sydney have been mentioned as potential locations for a fifth Australian team in the tournament.

In addition to sending letters to the Australian, New Zealand and South African rugby unions, SANZAR has invited the national bodies of Argentina, Canada, Fiji, Japan, USA and Tonga to consider applying.

Potential applicants need to register their interest with SANZAR by July 22.
