NEWS: The Currie Cup Premier Division semifinals and final will be moved back by a week to avoid any potential clashes with the Rugby Championship Test between the Springboks and All Blacks in Durban on October 8.

The semifinals were initially scheduled to be hosted on October 7 and 8 respectively, and the Final a week later, on Saturday, October 15.

The semifinals will now move to the following weekend, while the Currie Cup Premier Division Final, as well as the SA Rugby Under-19 and U21 Championship finals, will all be played on Saturday, October 22.

The Currie Cup First Division and the SA Rugby U20 Championship finals remain unaffected and will still be played on Friday, October 8.
