Match Relocation Details Confirmed

Sunwolves game
  • The Round 6 Sunwolves versus Brumbies match will be played on Friday 6 March prior to the Waratahs versus Chiefs match at WIN Stadium in Wollongong, kick-off 14:45 local time (AEDT).
     
  • The Round 7 Sunwolves versus Crusaders match will now be played on Saturday 14 March prior to the Reds versus Bulls match at Suncorp Stadium, kick-off 15:35 local time in Brisbane [16:35 AEDT].
     
  • The Round 7 Blues versus Lions match is still scheduled for Saturday 14 March at Eden Park but the kick-off time has been changed from 19:05 local time to 16:25 local time (to accommodate the scheduling of the Sunwolves versus Crusaders match).


Super Rugby CEO, Andy Marinos stated, "The necessity to relocate the two Sunwolves matches in Rounds 6 and 7 of Super Rugby has created an exciting opportunity for both teams and spectators in Wollongong (Sydney) and Brisbane. Rugby fans can now watch two Super Rugby matches at the respective venues in Rounds 6 and 7 as we deliver our first-ever ‘double-header’ round in the competition's history of regular season play. "



"I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the teams, management and CEO’s that have been impacted by this decision for their positive and cooperative manner in which they have addressed this change. In addition my thanks to Andrew Hore and the Blues organisation for their cooperation in changing the kick-off time at Eden Park on March 14 to allow a genuine double-header for fans at Suncorp Stadium. I believe we have made the most out of the decision to relocate the Sunwolves matches and created a tournament first in terms of establishing double-header matches."
