Cape Town - It's the weekend!

But the sporting world never sleeps, so hang on tight and be sure to watch these FOUR events (in no particular order)!


The English Premiership is here to keep us entertained this weekend.

We start off with the reigning champions, Chelsea, host Leicester City (Saturday, 17:00 SA time), an impressive Huddersfield Town battling West Ham United (Saturday, 17:00 SA time) and Tottenham Hotspur take on Everton (Saturday, 19:30 SA time).

On Sunday, we're in for a treat as AFC Bournemouth host Arsenal (15:30 SA time) and the main event for the weekend is when Liverpool play host to the (unbeatable?) log leaders Manchester City (18:00 SA time).

3. PRO14

This weekend we'll see the first-ever PRO14 South African derby when the Southern Kings host the Cheetahs.

The last time the two teams faced each other was in July when they made their final Super Rugby appearances.

The Kings desperately seek their first win of the tournament, while the Cheetahs look to climb up their conference log.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:00.
