SA Rugby has confirmed a change in kick-off time for Saturday’s Currie Cup fixture between Western Province and the Sharks at Newlands in Cape Town.
The clash will now start at 14:15 – instead of the initial time of 19:00 – in line with the adjusted Level 3 lockdown regulations.
WP V SHARKS IS THE FIRST OF 3 MATCHES THIS WEEKEND
The encounter will mark the first of three games this weekend that will wrap up the pool stage of the competition.
Other matches will see Griquas host the Cheetahs in Kimberley on Saturday at 16:30, while log leaders, the Bulls, and Pumas will bring down the curtain on the round-robin phase on Sunday at 16:00 at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
The four semi-finalists – the Bulls, WP, Sharks and Lions – have all been confirmed.
It’s now just a matter of where in the standings they finish – and who gets to host the playoff matches.
