2012 Super 15 Match Schedule

It’s almost that time of the year again! Rugby fans in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand can look forward to a jam packed Super Rugby season. The 2012 Super 15 tournament kicks off on the 24th of February in Auckland this year. 15 teams from the SANZAR countries will be competing in this tournament this year.

Last year the Reds (from Queensland in Australia) won the Super 15 competition. The format of the competition is exactly the same as last year, apart from the fact that all teams will take a break from this year’s tournament after the matches on the 2nd of June to participate in various international tests (including the 2012 Tri-Nations).  The 2012 Super 15 tournament will resume after these matches on the 29th of June. The 2012 Super 15 final will be played on the 4th of August (significantly later than usual).

This year’s Super 15 is bound to be a showcase of some of the best professional rugby on the planet (like almost every Super Rugby tournament since 1996). There was speculation that this year’s tournament would include teams from Argentina in the mix, but this seems to be postponed to next year.

This is the full 2012 Super 15 Match Schedule:

Despite an almost piss-poor performance by the Bulls last year I’m not considering to change the team I support at all. “Ek Bly ‘n Bul” seems to be phrase of the moment.
