    The Rugby Championship ( New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Argentina ) kicks off on August 17, but this Friday, August 9 brings the start of the Currie Cup tournament.

    This is South Africa's top domestic competition, featuring 6 teams from provinces throughout the country.

    As of today, only the Friday match is in the Guide, but I suspect the 2 Saturday matches will be added in the next day or so.

    Here is a list of this season's fixtures.

    Once again, Thanks to DirecTV for the terrific rugby coverage.

    PS: Now, if only they added the ITM Cup, New Zealand's version of the Currie Cup...I know, I know...we always want more!


    EDIT: The 2 Saturday matches now are in the Guide. More rugby ! ! !

    Now it looks like DIRECTV has added a additional rugby channel for the Rugby Championship!! LOVING THIS!!! With Currie Cup, and they are gonna show all the fixtures from ITM premiership and championship competitions.. My DVR is gonna explode!!! My only complaint is why the D is giving these games a six hour time slot for a two hour game?!?!?
    Thanks D*

    Wow! More great news.

    Ben, you're right. We have 12 matches to record this weekend ! ! !

    This commitment to rugby is beyond any expectation.

    I just don't understand why DirecTV does not make more noise, promoting these value added, no - charge services.

    PS: The picture quality of these raw backhauls is astounding.
