Platinum Rhinos are going for the Gold cup
Northam – The final line-up for the 2019 Gold Cup has been confirmed and the Northam Platinum Rhinos made the cut.
Next year the Gold Cup will occupy a pre-season slot, with the 2019 edition kicking off on Saturday 9 March and concluding with the final on Sunday 14 April.
The Gold Cup’s pre-Easter positioning is also part of a move to create an aligned and clearly defined national club season by 2020 to avoid any overlaps between the Gold Cup and the provincial unions’ club leagues.
The 16 teams will be divided into four pools of four, with each team playing three pool matches.
The top two teams in each pool will proceed to the quarter finals.
The pool draws, and fixtures will be confirmed by South African Rugby in the next few weeks together with more exciting news before the start of the tournament.
