SARU moves Currie Cup play-offs

Date published: September 20 2016

The Currie Cup semi-finals and final will be moved back by a week to avoid any potential clashes with the Rugby Championship Test between the Springboks and All Blacks in Durban on October 8.

The semi-finals were initially scheduled to be hosted on October 7 and 8 respectively, and the final a week later, on Saturday October 15.

South Africa are scheduled to face New Zealand at Kings Park in Durban on October 8 but there is a possiblilty that the Sharks will have a home semi-final at the same ground on the same weekend.

The semi-finals will now move to the following weekend, while the Currie Cup final, as well as the SA Rugby Under-19 and Under-21 Championship finals, will all be played on Saturday October 22.

The Currie Cup First Division and the SA Rugby Under-20 Championship finals remain unaffected and will still be played on Friday October 7.
