Rugby, netball get top billing on SuperSport Schools stream

Johannesburg, April 29 – Schoolboy rugby gets a big shake on the SuperSport Schools platform (DStv app channel 246 and Showmax) this week with the Barloworld Toyota Menlyn North South rugby tournament concluding in Pretoria on Saturday.

Having started on Tuesday, there have been several surprises along the way – Oakdale beating hosts Affies chief among them – and many players have stood out for the quality of their play, notwithstanding very little rugby having been played over the past year.

Many of SA’s finest rugby schools, including Grey College, Monument, Nelspruit and Paarl Gimnasium, will be in action on either Friday or Saturday.

Fans of netball will also be in for a treat. The Paarl Gimnasium Netball Festival, which began on Thursday, will continue through Saturday with extensive coverage on SuperSport Schools (DStv app channel 247 and Showmax).

There is no fee to access the app.

Specific start times will be determined by the tournament hosts.
