    Cape Town - The Cape Town Stadium will host a double-header of Super Rugby pre-season action featuring all four South African franchises. 

    On February 3, 2019 the Lions will take on the Sharks before the Stormers host the Bulls. 

    It will also be the first time the South African sides show off their new Marvel-themed kits, with the day being called the 'Super Hero Sunday Double Header'. 

    Each South African franchise will theme their third strip during Super Rugby 2019 around a Marvel super hero. 

    The Lions have a Spiderman-themed strip, the Sharks pay tribute to Black Panther, the Stormers honour Thor while the Bulls will have a Captain America feel. 

    The Lions v Sharks match starts at 14:00, followed thereafter by the Stormers v Bulls clash.
