The Tri Nations test match between the Boks and their greatest rivals The All Blacks, will be played at the state-of-the-art Soccer City stadium in Soweto on 21 August.

Soccer City will be hosting the Soccer World Cup final next Sunday and has a capacity of 95000. The decision to move the fixture from Ellis Park hasnt been officially announced yet but according to reports it has already been discussed with Ellis Park season ticket holders (all 53 of them)

More on this as it develops…

    Growing the game in non-rugby areas is the right thing to do. The Bulls need to take some of their games to Ellis Park.
