Diamond Fields Advertiser - - Opinion -

MANY lo­cal rugby fans will be dis­ap­pointed as the 2010 Fifa World Cup prepa­ra­tions take cen­tre stage and the only sched­uled Su­per 14 for the city will now be played at Vo­da­com Park in Bloem­fontein. No “of­fi­cial rea­son” has been given why the clash be­tween the Vo­da­com Chee­tahs and the Auto & Gen­eral Li­ons on Satur­day, May 15 is be­ing moved. How­ever, it is be­lieved that GWK Park may be used as a train­ing fa­cil­ity for an as yet un­named World Cup soc­cer team train­ing fa­cil­ity. Uruguay has been tipped to come to Kim­ber­ley, though a num­ber of other coun­tries have also shown some in­ter­est.
