SA stadiums set for capacity crowds

NEWS: There is some good news for the South African rugby fans

The Springboks’ home Tests in 2022 and Saturday’s Currie Cup Final are set for capacity crowds after the SA government repealed limitations on public events and gatherings.

Health minister Joe Phaahla published the latest amendments in the Government Gazette late on Wednesday.

Rules on wearing masks were also repealed.

This latest development follows a meeting of the National Coronavirus Command Council, which discussed matters on whether the remaining Covid-19 regulations were still relevant.

It should be good news for Griquas who are hoping for a large crowd for Saturday’s Currie Cup Final against the Pumas at Griqua Park in Kimberley.

It’s also a massive boost for the Springboks and SA Rugby as they welcome Wales for a three-Test series in July.

Soon after that series, the All Blacks will be heading to South Africa for two Test matches in the Rugby Championship.

Their first meeting will be in Nelspruit on August 6 before they meet again in Johannesburg on August 13.

However, the latest amendments comes too late for the United Rugby Championship Final.
