South African rugby still months away from restarting


With New Zealand starting their game up again next month and Australia soon after all eyes are on when SA Rugby will start up our local game again.

The lockdown restrictions in South Africa is still at level 4 and it seems that we are still a long way from getting any sport here in South Africa.

If you look at Government plan sport will only get a green light when we move to Level 1 which still looks like a far way away.

SA Rugby is still hoping that this will happen in August or September but then the clever people are saying that that is the same time they expect South Africa to peak with the Covid-19 infections.

A plan was presented to Government but they did not had any response yet from the ministers.

There has also not been any indications from Government on when they will give an answer to SA Rugby.

When we finally restart our season, SA Rugby plans to have a six-team Franchise tournament which will be followed by the Currie Cup.

At this stage the Rugby Championships is still scheduled for August and September but no certainty that it will take place with international travel restrictions expected to be very strict.

The plan is also that the Incoming test series against Scotland will be moved to October with the outgoing tour in November but yet again that depends on what type off restrictions will be in place for international travel.

Time will tell us how this will play out but for now we can only hope
