We believe that this is the best solution for everyone involved.‘All the teams will face each other home and away, and will enjoy two byes during the four months we believe will deliver top-class local rugby and unearth the next generation of stars for South African rugby.’SA Rugby also announced a five-team provincial U21 competition between the Blue Bulls, Free State, Golden Lions, Sharks and Western Province.The details of this competition, as well as the Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked and Currie Cup fixtures will be confirmed shortly.ALSO READ: What’s in our latest issue?Photo: Gallo Images ‘  1220  239 ‘ Shop Bras Online | Search AdsBrilliant Bra and Panty Sets (take a look)Shop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoGoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Shop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby MagUndo Two trophies up for grabs when action resumeslast_img read more
