SuperSport and e.tv have reached a once-off agreement to broadcast Saturday's second Test between South Africa and England at 10pm.

SuperSport and e.tv have reached a once-off agreement to broadcast Saturday's second Test between South Africa and England on the free-to-air broadcaster at 10pm.

The announcement comes after the South African Rugby Union (Saru) on Tuesday said it was disappointed that Springbok Test matches would not be available on free-to-air television, following the SABC's decision not to show the Springbok test matches on television.

In a joint statement on Friday, Happy Ntshingila, CEO of SuperSport, said he was pleased that attempts to make the match available to free-to-air television viewers had come to fruition, despite the short notice.

Monde Twala, Group Head of e.tv Channels Division said the channel was excited to be airing the match.

“e.tv is excited to have the Springboks on our channel,” Twala said.

“Although this is a once-off deal, we will always welcome the opportunity to ensure that the majority of South Africans are able to view their national heroes.

“We would have liked to have the opportunity to broadcast the test matches a bit earlier but given our schedule and time constraints this was impossible.” – Sapa
