Super Rugby AU Fixtures Announced

 

Super Rugby Australia will kick off on Friday 03 July 2020 the Reds will play against Waratahsat at the Suncorp Stadium. The Western Force will have to wait until Saturday 11 July when they will return to Super Rugby against the Waratahs in Sydney.  

All teams have two byes in the competition and the top three teams will qualify for a two-week finals series kicking off on September 12.

The competition was given the green light on Wednesday after a broadcast deal was finalised with FOX SPORTS for the competition.

Rugby AU CEO Rob Clarke emphasised the advantage of consistently friendly time zones, a far cry from the challenges fans have faced with South African time zones in regular Super Rugby.

Today is another exciting day for Rugby fans in Australia as we unveil the full competition draw for Vodafone Super Rugby AU," he said.

“One of the main features of the draw is the consistent Friday and Saturday night prime time viewing slots on FOX SPORTS, which rugby fans can set their watches to for the next 12 weeks.

"There will be no need to set the alarms to get up and watch your team in the middle of the night.

“We are looking forward to welcoming back the Western Force and seeing them take on their Australian rivals once again. We know there is a lot of excitement in the west and we cannot wait

to see them in action.

“We know our teams will be desperate to get their hands on the silverware and players will be out to put their best foot forward for Wallabies selection at the end of the season.”
