SUPER RUGBY NZ, PRO NETBALL GIVEN GREEN LIGHT
New Zealand Rugby (NZR) has welcomed their Government’s announcement yesterday that professional rugby and netball will resume at COVID-19 alert level two.
“For our fans, our players and everyone involved in Investec Super Rugby, we are thrilled that the Sports Minister has given the green light for professional sport to resume at level two,” said NZR chief executive Mark Robinson.
“Both netball and rugby have been working closely with Government agencies. As soon as the country announces what date we move to alert level two, we will be able to confirm what date Super Rugby will kick off.”
The five NZ teams will play each other home and away over 10 weeks, with two matches every weekend. All matches will be played in closed stadiums.
