Western Province's Currie Cup clash with the Sharks has been moved to 14:15 kick-off on Saturday from the initial 19:00 start time, SA Rugby announced on Tuesday.

The shift has been necessitated by the level three lockdown regulations, whose curfew prohibits anyone to be out of their place of residence from 21:00 unless they have a permit or in case of emergency.

Province's match up with the Sharks will be decisive in determining which of the four sides that have qualified for the knockout stages - Bulls, WP, Sharks and Lions - will host home semi-finals.

Start times for the other matches in the last pool stage games are unaffected by the changes.

On Saturday, Griquas host the Cheetahs at 16:30, while on Sunday the Bulls travel to Mbombela to face the Pumas (16:00 kick-off).
