The past week's highlights are unfortunately overshadowed by SARU's decisions regarding rugby in general with the Southern King's cancelling its 2020 fixtures surely the most upsetting.
The Sharks hits the bull with Dan Jooste's signing while RG Snyman's injury is maybe a reflection of the rest of the Springboks performances in Europe.
New Zealand, on the other hand, is struggling to find opponents to prepare for the upcoming test series against South Africa, Argentina and Australia. The success of New Zealand rugby where 26 rugby unions are being supported by Rugby New Zealand maybe the big difference between themselves and the rest of the world.
We ask if the closure of the English 7's squad could be the end of the 7' series and their Olympic dreams.
SARU's inability to finalise contact practice is questioned with the inability to confirm the u/20 Currie Cup series for 2020 troublesome.
And yes nothing to get excited as of yet for the South African rugby supporters.
