“Soccer City” to Host Real “Football Match”

This just in from Reuters Africa, on Aug. 21, Soccer City outside of Soweto, South Africa will play host to a Rugby football match between the South African Springboks and perennial Rugby World Cup championship contenders, the New Zealand All Blacks.

According to the story:

“SARU (South African Rugby Union) will make an exciting announcement next Wednesday about the Tri-nations test against the All Blacks, which seems to be the worst-kept secret in rugby at the moment,” SARU spokesman Andy Colquhoun said.

Yes, and it doesn’t help when the opposition coach lets it slip out in the middle of a media interview and then basically says “ummm… allegedly.” 😉

Although reports of players not flailing on the ground and screaming like little children if they get tapped on the ankle in this game have not yet been confirmed, but come on – these are rugby players. They know better.
