It’s official! SA Rugby has confirmed that the Springboks will complete their Rugby Championship fixtures in Australia. The reigning Rugby World Cup champions will fly for Queensland this Thursday the 26th of August, together with the Pumas. They will be placed in quarantine for two weeks, however they will be allowed to train during this time.
As additional restrictions have come out of both Australia and New Zealand following the latest Covid-19 outbreaks, there was some concern over where the second half of the tournament would be played. The good news is that the new fixtures have been announced – with all games being played in Australia – so you can get in on the rugby action.
Here is the list of fixtures for the away leg of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship: 12 September – Cbus Super Stadium, Gold Coast
- New Zealand v Argentina
- South Africa v Australia
18 September – Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
- Argentina v New Zealand
- Australia v South Africa
25 September – Queensland Country Bank Stadium, Townsville
- Australia v Argentina
- New Zealand v South Africa
2 October – Cbus Super Stadium, Gold Coast
