Hi,

We have a NEW SuperBru Pool for all to join!

  • The Varsity Cup 2017 starts today (30 January 2017) at 16:45 SA Time, so hurry up and do not delay to register and pick for it!
  • 2 More Pools will be created, one for Super Rugby 2017 and the other for the RBS SIX Nations, within the next day or so, so keep a lookout for them too and join up there too!

As of 2016 we have been doing it a bit differently and opened our Pools up to all readers of Rugby-Talk.com, but we encourage you to register as a subsciber on Rugby-Talk.com anyway, as our banter and commenting about our Pools will mostly take place here on the website and not on the SuperBru banter boards! It is so easy to register and such fun to discuss rugby here.

Mr Oregan Hoskins announced on Wednesday that he was stepping down as president of the South African Rugby Union (SARU) after a decade of service and achievement.

Mr Hoskins advised the membership of SA Rugby at a meeting of the General Council in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

“I have enjoyed a remarkable ten and a half years in one of the most high-profile roles in South African sport and have enjoyed some incredible highs,” said Mr Hoskins. “It has been a pleasure and a privilege and I want to thank everyone involved in South African rugby for the fantastic journey we have shared.

“There have also been plenty of challenges to confront but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way – it’s an indication of how much our sport matters in this country.

Varsity CupThe 2016 edition of the Varsity Cup gets underway on Monday 8 February with new laws, try bonus points and some nifty innovations being piloted for the 1st time.

There will no resting on laurels this year as by the end of the tournament, the bottom side will be relegated to the Varsity Shield competition and the 2nd-from-bottom side will enter a promotion / relegation against the Shield’s losing finalist.

The action gets underway in Pretoria where UP-Tuks host NWU-Pukke. Pukke will head into the encounter with a bit of confidence, having beaten Tuks at the Tuks Stadium in the play-offs to book their spot in the 2015 final – their 2nd consecutive appearance in the final.

Pukke fell short at that final hurdle and will be looking to make it 3rd time lucky under new coach, former Springbok Sevens captain Johnathan Mokuena.

Varsity CupOne of the exciting announcements to emerge from the launch of the 2016 season of the Varsity Cup on Monday was that in 2017 3 universities will join the existing 13 universities currently taking part in Varsity Rugby.

“When Varsity Cup began in 2008, 8 universities were competing,” said Varsity Cup chairperson, Jurie Roux.

“Then in 2011 we added the Varsity Shield and it grew by 5. Next year there will be 16 universities taking part in Varsity Rugby. The competition is becoming more and more inclusive and to have increased the university participation by 100% in under 10 years is phenomenal.”

The Varsity Cup and Varsity Shield competitions are managed by a board of members who will hold a meeting in May 2016 to decide upon a qualification process, whereafter the three additional universities will be announced.

The 3 new teams will join the Varsity Shield, while 1 Varsity Shield team will be promoted to the Varsity Cup, joining the 8 existing teams.

“We are extremely excited about this next chapter of Varsity Rugby,” said Varsity Cup CEO Duitser Bosman.

“The inclusion of 9 teams in Varsity Cup will allow each team to play 4 home and 4 away matches. In addition to that, each team can look forward to 1 bye week in the competition – a luxury they weren’t afforded in the past.”

Previously the teams’ 7 matches were split between 4 home matches and 3 away, or 3 home matches and 4 away – alternating from season to season.

The inclusion of 7 Varsity Shield teams in 2017 will allow each team to play 6 matches.

Promotion and relegation matches will be played again in 2018 for the 2019 season.

The 2016 Varsity Rugby season kicks off on 1 February 2016 with the 1st Round of Varsity Shield matches taking place.

Varsity Cup 2016 Launch

Speaking at the launch of the 2016 Varsity Cup and Shield competitions, Pienaar gave an insight into the reasoning behind the bonus point system, which could lead to a maximum of 9 points being awarded for a try.
