Johannesburg - A new dawn has come in Vodacom Super Rugby that will see more bone-crushing hits, mesmerising sidesteps, and awe-inspiring tries than ever before in 2016.

“The supporters are the bedrock of the tournament and at Vodacom we made it our mission to make sure the fans don’t miss a beat in this year’s Vodacom Super Rugby competition.”
Vodacom Super Rugby will be bigger and better than ever before with the
expansion from 15 teams to 18 to include the Southern Kings, the Jaguares
