Plans to restructure local rugby competitions are currently under discussion in the wake of the recent measures introduced to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, SA Rugby announced on Wednesday.

 

These plans could see South African franchises and other provincial teams return to a new, locally-based derby competition in view of the current suspension of Vodacom Super Rugby and the Guinness PRO 14.

 

SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux has confirmed the national rugby body is in ongoing discussions with stakeholders about a number of competition models that could be implemented.

 

“SA Rugby is currently evaluating all our competition structures, with a view to restructure it in the interim so that we are able to afford game time to all our franchise and provincial teams,” said Roux.

 

“Obviously, nothing can happen in the next few weeks until the ‘period of social distancing’, as instructed by President Cyril Ramaphosa, has lapsed.

 

“We are considering local derby matches between our South African teams. We must still drill into the specifics, but we are confident we will be able to put a feasible plan on the table that will be suitable for everyone.

 

“These are extraordinary times which call for extraordinary measures and it also offers us an opportunity to be innovative.

 

“We are working closely with our broadcast partner, SuperSport, and other important stakeholders and will announce plans once we are in a position to do so,” Roux added.

 

National teams

 

After the suspension of all national team training and alignment camps and business travel as part of a raft of measures in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus said plans are already in place to continue with preparations.

 

Scheduled Springbok alignment camps, Springbok Women’s training camps, as well as the Junior Springboks’ and Blitzboks’ preparations have all been suspended until 14 April.

 

“Speaking purely from a rugby point of view, we realise no one could prepare for the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result, all of us in the game across the globe are in the same boat,” said Erasmus.

 

“As SA Rugby has already said we need to ensure the wellness of players, supporters and staff as well as playing rugby’s part in helping counter the pandemic.

 

“Our planning for the season will carry on regardless – whether it’s the Springboks, Junior Springboks, Blitzboks or our national women’s teams – as we still have a lot to prepare for.

 

“While there are challenges when it comes to face-to-face interaction with players and team activities, modern communication methods make it possible for coaches, players and management teams to keep in constant contact with one another.

 

“Nothing beats sitting around a table or running around on the training field, but this is not a unique situation to us here in South Africa and without going into too much detail, we can confirm that the work has not stopped and we are hard at work preparing for our forthcoming Tests, other matches or tournaments.”

 

The Springboks’ Castle Lager Incoming Series Tests in July (against Scotland and Georgia), Youth Week tournaments and Currie Cup remain as scheduled but will be reviewed in April.

Laat die CC Spanne n dubbel rondte Curriebeker reeks speel. Gebruik die res van die sponsor geld van Vodacom en maak van dit n spectacle. Laat die groter unies hulle spelers wat nie tans gebruik word nie aan Griekwas en Pumas leen.

I see this website is also practicing social distancing ! 

Crazy times we are experiencing...

@Transvaal , do you know how the players are training ? I assume no contact with fitness and strength training only ? 

Hulle Moet dalk vir die ouens tackle sakke stuur , sodat hulle kan tackle in die agterjaard bybdie huis

I've heard that other unions have players coming in for gym sessions which include lots of cardio. But in small groups. Between every group, equipment is sterilized.

Dis nogal positief vir ons, ek is mos 'n "software developer", en as ons kan bewys dat dit goied werk en dat ons meer produktief by die huis is, kan dit 'n permanente reeling raak. Ek het by 'n vorige maatskappy in 'n span gewerk waar ons 5 maande vanb die huis af gewerk het, was baie lekker

Vir my en my personeel in retail kan hierdie fataal vir ons besigheid wees, maar dit is beslis nodig. Al kan ek net my personeel se salarisse van iewers af "claim" sal dit fine wees. Die res van die uitgawes sal ons oor kan onderhandel en 'n plan maak.

Lyk my vir n klein besigheid om te kwalifiseer vir finansiele hulp, moet die besigheid n 51% swart andeelhouding he.
So die enkelma met die nael salonnetjie, wat sukkel om kop bo water te hou en getrou elk maand haar belasting betaal, word nie bygestaan nie, so ook nie die bou kontrakteur wat 20 mense in diens het nie...

Ja kyk, daar is 'n rowwe tyd wat voorle. Ek het al van baie mense gehoor wat hul werk al klaar verloor het, en besighede wat toemaak. Veral in die toerisme bedryf. 

Kom ons hoop maar 3 weke is genoeg om die virus te stop, en dat dinge daarna weer kan terugkeer na normaal

Ek is een van die gelukkige mense wat vir 'n maatskappy werk wat kan bekostig om ons volle salarisse te betaal sonder dat ons hoef verlof te vat oor die tydperk, maar.... Ons het al van Laasjaar Desember gewerk aan 'n herstruktureringsplan, omdat ons afdeling die afgelope paar jaar verlies maak... Die gaan dinge net soveel meer kompliseer...
Ek dink nie daar is een persoon in die wereld, behalwe natuurlik die Sentinelese mense, wat nie direk of indirek hierdeur geraak gaan word nie, hetsy finansieel, of gesondheid of emosioneel... Die ding is nog ver van verby en sy impak gaan ons nog baie jare bybly...
Al wat ons kan doen is om die minderbevoorregte mense te help waar ons kan (en begin asb eerste by JOU mense, jou familie en jou vriende wat swaarkry eerder as om vreemdelinge te help terwyl jou mense vrek van die honger) en om die beperkinge te gehoorsaam.

Ek hoop wragtag dat almal by die beperkings sal bly. Indien nie en die 21 dae isolasie word verleng gaan, nie kan nie, gaan dit katastofies wees. En ongelukkig dink ek nie ons samelewing het die wil/ lus/ dissipline/ watookal nodig is om die regte ding te doen nie.

Die weermag/ polisie gaan letterlik eers oortreders moet doodskiet in die strate voor die mense gaan luister. En dan is dit nag.

Donner, ek hoop ek's verkeerd.

This self isolation will help the majority of the middle/working class. 

For the rest, I don't see it being effective. We are in for a bumpy ride

Wel, my vrou se werk reken hulle val onder essential services, so hulle is aangese om te werk gedurende die 21 dae. Dis natuurlik nonsens, so ek weet nie wat gaan gebeur nie

It is really rough. We have had no new enquiries for most of March. And all that has kept us busy has been arranging postponements.

We had a booking in Kruger for Easter. Have been trying to get a postponement but there is absolutely no answer on phone or email. This nasty little virus is really turning things in their heads...

Selfde hier... Eers is ons Dinsdag deur die CEO geroep vir dringende veragadering waar gese is ons maak toe... 
Ewe skielik kry ons hordes briewe van maatskappye wat briewe van maatskappye gekry het wat weer briewe van Eskom gekry het, wat vra dat ons asb moet aanhou werk omdat hulle nie sonder ons produk aan hulle customers kan verskaf wat aan hulle customers moet verskaf wat uiteindelik aan Eskom moet verskaf nie...lol

So dit lyk my meeste besighede gaan maar inelkgeval oop bly, wat die hele doel van die oefening sinneloos maak....
