Springboks to feature in unique double header Tests

•Two Tests for the price of one
•Rugby World Cup 2015 dress rehearsal
•Five hours of entertainment

Rugby fans will have the unique experience of seeing two Test matches at the same venue on the same day – all for the price of one – with kick off in the Castle Lager Incoming Series just less than a fortnight away.

The Springboks will take on Italy, Scotland and Samoa in an unprecedented mini-tournament in Durban, Nelspruit and Pretoria. On each match day, fans will get to see all four teams in action.

The series kicks off at Growthpoint Kings Park on 8 June at 14h15 when Samoa take on Scotland in an early dress rehearsal for the 2015 Rugby World Cup: both teams are grouped together with the Springboks in the pool stages.

Then at 17h15 the Springboks take on Italy the same venue to complete five hours of entertainment.

The fixtures are reversed a week later when Test rugby makes its debut at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit with the Boks meeting Scotland and Samoa and Italy going head-to-head in the early game.

Teams will earn log points and bonus points – as per Vodacom Super Rugby – over the opening two rounds to determine the final fixtures for Loftus Versfeld. In the finale, Team 4 will play Team 3 before the top two play off in the final game for the Castle Lager Incoming Series Shield.
