Yesterday afternoon during the Bulls vs. Griquas match we heard that SARU had decided to change the Venue of the much talked about mud wrestling match between Boland and WP to Newlands. Now SARU have announced that the venue has been changed again.
PJLD drew our attention to the SARU decision to change the venue and we posted this article from Rugby 365.
It seems though that not all the concerned parties were in agreement and the match has now been moved back to Boland Stadium in Wellington. Or was it ever actually moved?
The SARU Website has the following statement:
Please be advised that the Boland Cavaliers v Vodacom Western Province Absa Currie Cup match remains as scheduled to take place at the Boland Stadium in Wellington on Saturday (kickoff 3pm) and not at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town.
Match referee Christie du Preez will inspect the field at 11am at which point a decision will be taken on whether the game can go ahead.
That is the statement in full. They don’t go into any detail as to whether it was moved and then moved back or whether someone jumped the gun with the initial press release.
Did someone with a little too much influence change the venue without getting full agreement from the necessary people or has there been a change of heart somewhere? Either way these guys need to start getting their act together.Tweet
