Lockdown forces change to Currie Cup kick-off
LOCKDOWN: The adjusted lockdown regulations announced on Monday night have led to yet another change in this season’s Currie Cup fixtures.
The Currie Cup match between the Cheetahs and Western Province, which could have an important bearing on who the eventual semi-finalists will be, will now kick-off at 16.30 (SA time) instead of the initial time of 19.00 (SA time) on Saturday.
This change follows Tuesday’s confirmation by the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture that professional sport may continue, as long as all matches are concluded by 20.00 in adherence with the nationwide curfew of 21.00.
Two matches on Saturday will now start at 16.30 and both will be broadcast live on SuperSport.
The clash between the Cheetahs and Western Province in Bloemfontein will be on the SuperSport’s Grandstand and Rugby channels (201 and 211), while the match between the Sharks and Griquas in Durban will play out on SuperSport’s Action channel (210).
The game between the Pumas and Lions in Nelspruit will continue as scheduled at 14.00 and will be broadcast live on the SuperSport Grandstand and Rugby channels.
