Get ready to watch a feast of rugby



The SA Franchise Challenge, starting at Ellis Park this Saturday, will herald the start of another epic rugby season on SuperSport.

The Golden Lions will play the Cheetahs (SS1 and SSHD1, 5pm), while two days later, on Monday, the FNB Varsity Cup will begin. It, too, will enjoy extensive television coverage, supplemented by live internet streaming.

Then, on February 1, the New Zealand Sevens begins at 2am (SA time), with the final taking place at 10am on Saturday, February 2. The entire tournament will be broadcast live on SS1 and SSHD4.

On the same weekend, the Lions and Bulls will meet in another SA Franchise Challenge match – at Orlando Stadium on Soweto – with February 2 also marking the start of the Six Nations.

Wales versus Ireland and England against Scotland will be broadcast live on SS6 and HD4, at 3.30pm and 6pm respectively.

This all leads to the Super Rugby season, starting on February 15. All 125 matches will be broadcast live on SuperSport, guaranteeing unrivalled rugby coverage.
