The Super 15, which kicks-off on February 18, 2011, is going to the most grueling competition ever played in the southern hemisphere. With the IRB Rugby World Cup taking place in September, every South African, Australian and New Zealand player involved in the Super 15 has a point to prove.

Super 15 fans from Australia and New Zealand who haven’t yet visited South Africa, should make a plan to do so during this tournament. The fixtures have now been released and you can begin planning your trip today.

The Blues from Aukland will start their South African tour in late February, with their first match being against the Sharks in Durban on February 26. They will then move to Johannesburg to play the Lions the following weekend.

The Highlanders from Otago will tour South Africa in March, starting with their match against the defending champions, the Bulls, in Pretoria on March 5. The following weekend they will meet the Stormers in Cape Town.

On March 19, the Force from Perth will meet the Lions in Johannesburg, for the first match of their South African tour. They will then travel to Cape Town the following week to complete their tour.

Fans of these 3 teams have a great reason to experience South Africa during summer.

More Super 15 teams will of course be visiting South Africa in April, May, June and possibly in July for the semi-finals and the final.
