The Australian rugby union says no decision has been made on which Australian super rugby side will be dumped from the competition next year.
Earlier on Tuesday the Western Force have issued a strongly worded statement rejecting a media report that they are about to be axed from Super Rugby.
SANZAAR, which is made up of the South African, New Zealand, Australian and Argentine rugby unions, met in London earlier this month and decided to reduce the unwieldy competition from 18 to 15 teams.
Two are set to go from South Africa and one from Australia.
Australia's News Ltd reported the Force will be the Australian team to go but the Perth-based side have released a statement saying that it's only more speculation.
The Australian Rugby Union chief executive Bill Pulver has also issued a statement saying "no decision has been taken on the removal of one of Australia's Super Rugby teams.
"ARU, as a joint venture partner of SANZAAR, is working towards a final resolution in the shortest timeframe possible and will inform rugby fans as soon as an outcome is reached."
