WP to stay at Newlands for now
Cape Town - The Western Province Rugby Union remains open for discussion about a possible move to the Cape Town Stadium, but no such decision is pending.
“Whilst we continue to remain open to considering our position, a considerable number of important elements would need to be resolved, including what the best financial model for WP Rugby would be,” Tobie Titus, President of the WPRFU told the WP Rugby website.
“Any decision would need to be taken by the General Council of the WPRFU. At the moment no such decision has been taken and no such decision is pending. WPRFU will continue to play all official league Super Rugby, Currie Cup and Test rugby at DHL Newlands.” added Titus.
This comes after Theuns Roodtman, the WPRFU's chief executive, told Die Burger newspaper that they "are in talks with the city" (Cape Town's City Council) about a possible move from Newlands to the new stadium in Greenpoint.
