Weekend Rugby on SuperSport – World Cup warm-up matches in full swing


This weekend is another weekend full of rugby as we go into the second last week of Currie Cup.

With that we are seeing test nations getting ready with their warm-up matches for this years World Cup in Japan.

The Currie Cup is heating up with almost all the teams still having a mathematical chance of making it into the playoffs.

The Blue Bulls and Pumas are likely to be out of the race but you never know in this shorten version this year.

Here is the matches for the weekend.

If you were thinking of doing anything else than watching rugby, then sorry Saturday for rugby lovers will be in front of the telly from 09:30 to 23:00 non stop.

On Saturday we have the final round of the Bledisloe Cup between the All Blacks and Australia. The test will be live on SuperSport 1 HD.

With the Aussie hammering the All Blacks this past weekend we can be assured that it is going to be one of those classic test matches.

Next up will be Wales that will be hosting England in the second warm-up match between the two sides.

England got the better of Wales in the first test this past weekend. They dominate the test for longer periods than Wales and there was plenty of mistakes from both sides.

It is another week to get things ready for both side before the World Cup.

The match will be live on SuperSport 6.

Rassie Erasmus boys will go into the match with some confidence after winning the 2019 Rugby Championship last weekend.

Rassie is building nicely towards the World Cup with a team that most believe a year or so ago would not even make it pass the pool stages of the World Cup.

We can expect a few changes to the team for this weekend and we expect Springbok Captain Kolisi to make his return in this test at Loftus.

The test will be live on SuperSport 1 HD at 17:00.

Next up will be Italy hosting Russia on Saturday. Russia will be a unknown side too many as they also prepare for the World Cup.

Italy will be coming off a loss against Ireland this past weekend and will want to pull things around against the Russians.

This game is live on SuperSport 8 at 18:15 on Saturday.

The last test match of the weekend sees France hosting Scotland on Saturday night.

France have not had a great year so far at international level and against a Scottish side that have shown that they will run from everywhere, this might just be a test match to stay up for on Saturday.

This test will be live on SuperSport 1 HD at 20:55

Here is the full International schedule for this weekend..
