BUSINESS NEWS - Sport is finally back in full swing with local and international sports making a comeback to our screens.
Rugby fans are rejoicing here in sunny South Africa as the Super Rugby Unlocked brings the top provincial teams squaring off to be the best.
A total of 7 teams will participate in the competition which kicked off last weekend on the 9th of October.
The competition consists of 7 teams that will each play seven matches against each other over the course of two months with the competition finishing up on the 21st of November. But, rugby fans do not have to despair as the Currie Cup kicks off a week after the Super Rugby Unlocked finishes on the 28th of November.
Although the competitions are seen as separate the points accumulated from the Super Rugby Unlocked will be carried over to the Currie Cup. This will be a first in South Africa as rugby fans will be able to enjoy both local rugby and cricket over the summer holidays.
The top four teams on the log will play in the semi finals which is set to take place on the 16th of January and the final taking place a week after that 23rd of January.
In football news, South Africa’s Bafana Bafana lost their friendly match 2-1 against Zambia on Sunday the 11th. They now face São Tomé and Príncipe in two matches in November in the group stages of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifications.
