2012 Super 15 Match Schedule

Yes Junk Mail Rugby Fans, it’s almost that time of the year again! The 2012 Super 15 Rugby Season will kick off on the 24th of February this year. 15 teams from New Zealand, Australia and South Africa will be competing for the Super 15 title this year. Last year the Reds (from Queensland, Australia) won the Super 15 tournament.

For the first time in the history of the tournament, this year’s Super Rugby tournament will take a break so teams can play their June International Tour Tests. The tournament will pause after the matches played on the 2nd of June and will resume on the 29th of June. (The International Tests will be played on the 9th, 16th and 23rd of June).

Please note that times, dates and venues are subject to change. Please note that there is a new Super Rugby format which sees the teams in the new conferences playing each other twice.
