It’s possible that all the games will take place in Nelspruit, says IOL sports editor John Goliath.

Rugby is set to return to South Africa in September – without fans.

The government on Thursday gave SA Rugby the green light to start full-contact training.

South African teams haven't played since mid-March.

South Africa’s national team, the number-one ranked Springboks, hasn’t played since winning the Rugby World Cup in November 2019.

Lester Kiewit interviewed John Goliath, the sports editor at Iol.

It’s fantastic to have rugby back!

New Zealand will be more than ready for the Rugby Championship; they’ve been playing for more than a month. It’s a matter of getting the Boks up to speed.

The Boks will only be involved in six [club] games, then they go over to New Zealand for the Rugby Championship.

The Pumas in Nelspruit has put their name into a hat, because of the low number of Covid-19 cases there. The stadium and pitch are in fantastic shape. They want to host two matches per day over a weekend.
