2010 Super 14 Fixtures


This is a post for all the Rugby fans out there. The 2010 Super 14 Tournament kicks off in a few weeks on the weekend of the 12th February. The 2007 and 2009 Super 14 champions, the Bulls (a team based in my home town, Pretoria) will be looking to defend their title in this year’s competition.

Super-14 2010 Super 14 Fixtures

The 2010 Super 14 Tournament will definately be a showcase of the best rugby on the planet (or at least the best rugby in the Southern Hemisphere). Teams from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa will be facing off against each other over a period of 16 weeks. The Super 14 Tournament is definately one of those “not too be missed” events on the South African sports calendar. Let’s hope that at least 1 team from South Africa makes it into the Semi-Final stage of the competition this year. Maybe the Bulls will win the Super 14 for a 3rd time (even though they’ve lost star winger Bryan Habana to the Stormers).
