South Africa withdraws from Rugby Championship

World rugby champions, South Africa announced yesterday they will not be competing in the upcoming Rugby Championship in Australia, leaving New Zealand, Argentina and Australia to play for the 2020 title.

The Springboks were scheduled to leave for Australia on Sunday and play their first test against Argentina in Sydney on 7 November.

“This is a hugely disappointing outcome for supporters and commercial partners but the ongoing impacts of the pandemic… mean we are unable to deliver a Springbok team without seriously compromising player welfare, apart from other logistical challenges.”
– Jurie Roux, SARU Chief Executive
