Rugby Champs comes up north
The Springboks will bid an emotional farewell to Newlands in Cape Town in July, and will face the All Blacks in a brand-new venue in September.
The three Rugby Championship matches – against New Zealand, Australia and Argentina – will take place at Ellis Park, Loftus Versveld and Mbombela Stadium. The three Tests in the Incoming Series – against Scotland and Georgia in a new Test window in July – will be hosted in Cape Town, Durban and Nelson Mandela Bay.
The two-match series against the Scots kicks off on Saturday 4 July in Cape Town, and again a week later at Kings Park in Durban, followed by a historic first home Test for the Springboks against Georgia, at Nelson Mandela Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Mandela Day (Saturday, 18 July). – Own Correspondent
