Cheetahs vs Bulls match cancelled

The Currie Cup Premier Division match between the Cheetahs and Bulls, scheduled for Bloemfontein on Wednesday, has been cancelled in line with Covid-19 protocols.

Furthermore, due to the latest national coronavirus regulations announced this past Sunday, the match between Western Province and the Sharks at Cape Town Stadium will now kick off at 5pm on Wednesday, and not 7pm.

The decision to cancel the Bloemfontein game was prompted by positive tests in the Cheetahs team, and they have informed SA Rugby that they are not able to field a team with enough front-row cover in such a short time frame, which puts player welfare at risk.

As determined by the competition rules, the Bulls will be awarded four log points because of the cancellation and the result will be noted as 0-0.
