Super Rugby: Pre-season action


The upcoming season will see 15-teams battling for the crown.

Last year’s complicated season of 18 sides has been reduced after the axing of Cheetahs, Southern Kings and Australian side the Western Force.

However, before the season kicks off on February 17, the franchises have set-up pre-season schedules to familiarized themselves with the competitive nature of the competition.

This page is a working document and rugby365 will be updating it as far as possible.
