SABC will broadcast the Rugby World Cup Final, South Africa VS England.

Following the agreement between SABC and DStv, the SABC will play the world cup rugby final match between South Africa and England.

The SABC was reportedly unable to broadcast any of the Rugby World Cup 2019 matches due to financial constraints that hindered the channel to meet the DStv’s demands.

The call to allow the SABC to broadcast the final match was made by many politicians including Panyaza Lisufi, the MEC of education in Gauteng.

SABC will broadcast Rugby World Cup between England and Springboks on Saturday at 11:00 AM, as well as the third-place play-off on Friday at SABC2.

The South African side that fought hard to secure the spot on finals against Wales will be looking to repeat the victory that landed them a World Cup in 2007 in France against England when they play the same team this Saturday.

Springboks won 19:16 against Wales to qualify for the finals. England secured their spot with a 19:7 victory over New Zealand.
