The immediate future of the 2020 Vodacom Super Rugby season has been thrown into doubt after Sanzaar announced a review into the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sanzaar says the Highlanders’ blue jersey for the match against the Vodacom Bulls was approved because there looked to be enough contrast between the teams’ kits based on a colour chart used.

The Lions’ upcoming match against the Blues at Eden Park has been moved to an earlier kick-off time to allow for two rescheduled Sunwolves matches.
