Fiji Sun - - SPORTS -

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.
