Rugby Africa Gold and Silver Cup 2019 Matches Cancelled (15/04)

Part of the statement from Rugby Africa.

“In 2019, Rugby Africa must organize Olympic Qualifiers for men and women for Tokyo 2020 as well as the first African Qualifier tournament for the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup.

“We regret to inform you that the 2019 Silver Cup and 2019 Gold Cup tournaments are cancelled. Rugby Africa’s EXCO is currently working in conjunction with World Rugby to suggest other formats of fifteen-a-side competitions which will be financially viable in 2019 and won’t jeopardize the future of Rugby Africa’s competitions. At the same time, we are working on a new Rugby World Cup Qualifier model which needs to be sustainable, inclusive and attractive. Unions will be consulted in this process with an aim to release the final fixtures for 2020 in October 2019.
