After an Off-season which certainly drove me slightly more batty than I already was, the new Rugby Season is now close at hand.
The coming weekend sees some of Super Rugby’s warm-up matches, with the Lions playing the Leopards on Friday evening 24 January, the Cheetahs playing against NMMU and again against the Kings on Saturday and of course the Sharks playing Saracens on Saturday 25 January in London. In addition there is the HSBC Sevens World Series Las Vegas tournament on the weekend, Saturday and Sunday and slightly into Monday very early morning.
TV coverage of the Lions / Leopards match and the 2 Cheetahs warm-up’s I can’t find but on Saturday 25 January we’ll see the Sevens rugby from way earlier than sparrow-fart (01:55 SA Time and thereafter) on SuperSport 1 & SHD and the match between Saracens vs Cell C Sharks will be broadcast (from 16:15 SA Time) on SuperSport 1, SHD & CSN.
The week thereafter it is Six Nations rugby from 1 February and of course Varsity Cup rugby from Monday 3 February, in addition to some more Super Rugby warm-up matches.
