The 2012 Superugby schedule is here

The 2012 Superugby fixtures have been released and there are changes galore, Sunday games, Thursday games and a 4 week break in June.

As usual the action starts in New Zealand, this year sees a Blues v Crusaders match-up to get the season underway. in South Africa the Sharks start their season with a trip North of the Jukskei to take on the Bulls at Loftus.

The Cheetahs are the 1st South African team to travel out of SA playing the Brumbies in Canberra in week 3. The Sharks follow in week 5 when they take on the Waratahs in Sydney. The Stormers have to wait until week 7 to tour, but they start their tour in Dunedin. The Bulls and Lions both leave SA in week 11 to Melbourne and Hamilton respectively.

The Bulls have a bye the week before starting their tour which will come in handy if any of the players are suffering niggles by week 11.

This season sees five matches being played on Sundays. Australia, who are fighting a constant popularity battle with Rugby League, have 4 matches scheduled for Sundays with the Crusaders’ hosting the Reds for the fifth of these games. Easter weekend also sees the Rebels and the Blues clashing in Melbourne on Thursday evening.

The biggest change however is the Superugby break from 3 to 29 June while the international schedule is completed. This means there will be fifteen weeks of rugby before the 4 week break with the last three pool rounds being completed after that. No South African team will travel abroad after the international season break, leaving us with some mouth watering derbies to finish off the season. The Sharks will have a week longer break as they have a bye immediately after the international break before hosting the Bulls and then the Cheetahs in the final two weeks of the pool stages.

This year also sees the introduction of a rotation system determining the 1st round bye. Last year the Stormers had that “pleasure” this year sees the rebels having to cool their heels for an extra week while everyone else is playing Superugby.
