The FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International is known for its excitement, energy and innovation. The 2018 season will be no different. After numerous requests and proposed ideas from the public, the Varsity Cup Board has welcomed the idea of the public suggesting new rules that could be implemented for the 2018 season.

“The idea came after our Varsity Cup social media accounts received many strong suggestions on how to make rugby more exciting, without changing the fundamental aspects of the game,” said Varsity Cup CEO, Duitser Bosman. “Varsity Cup has always been at the forefront of innovation and change, making sure that the game remains fast and entertaining. “

For this very reason, Varsity Cup has opened up its cyber doors and is encouraging the public to send through their rule suggestions. If the suggestion is solid enough, the Varsity Cup Board may implement it in 2018, should it get approved.

The public is invited to email their rule suggestions to [email protected] by no later than 7 August 2017. Varsity Cup will also share a number of the best ideas on their website, for the public to weigh in on.

Varsity Cup is set to take centre stage early in 2018. Fixtures will be announced at a later stage.

    Rugby is tog n 15 man spel, om seker te maak dat die wedstryd tussen twee spanne kompiterend is en bly, wil ek die volgende voorstel aan die hand doen.In die geval van n geel kaart moet die betrokke speler op die veld bly en die wedstryd voltooil, maar hy word gestraf deur vir een wedstryd geskors te word, so ook met n rooi kaart daar word die speler ook toegelaat om die wedstryd klaar te maak, maar hy word daarna vir twee wedstryde geskors , sodoende word die speler gestraf en nie die span, afrigter en toeskouers nie, want ons gaan tog om n goeie wedstryd te sien en nie te kyk hoe daar party keer 13 man teen 14 man moet speel nie.
