SA RUGBY UNDER-20 SHIELD

In 2022, six teams will participate in two pools: North – Limpopo, Pumas, Valke; and South – Boland, Border, SWD. The competition kicked off early in April and all teams will play a double round of matches in their pool, followed by the final between the two pool winners, scheduled for 28 May.
