The Emirates Lions play the Cell C Sharks followed by the DHL Stormers versus the Vodacom Bulls. Gates open at 12 noon and the matches start at 2pm.
THE SUPERHERO KIT
The jersey designs reflect the superheroes that the teams represent, while also staying true to each team’s already iconic colour identity.
The new jerseys are inspired by Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America and this Marvel makeover makes its first public appearance at these two matches.
The Lions represent Spider-Man, The Bulls play as Captain America, The Stormers hit the field as Thor, and The Sharks transform to Black Panther.
SA Rugby, DStv, SuperSport, Marvel and Vodacom collaborated to create the new jerseys. The four SA teams will don the new-look jerseys during local matches throughout the Super Rugby season, but will wear their usual jerseys when playing international opposition.
