SARU sad at TV outcome
Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) says it is disappointed that Springbok Test matches will not be available on free-to-air television, following the SABC’s decision not broadcast matches delayed “as live”.
The SABC announced
on Tuesday that its policy henceforth would be to broadcast only sporting events to which it had the live rights. Springbok matches will continue to be broadcast on 12 SABC radio stations.
“We respect the SABC’s decision but it is disappointing from SARU’s perspective and I’m sure from the perspective of rugby supporters,” said Jurie Roux
, CEO of SARU.
Roux added that he hoped that Springbok matches would return to free-to-air television at some point in the future.
