The 2019 Rugby World Cap has officially kicked off in Japan, and there's no doubt that rugby fans will be glued to their TV screens for the remainder of the event.
But for some, owning a full DStv bouquet is not an option. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Who needs a TV screen when you can be cheering on your favourite team with drink in hand with a few of your pals? After all, it's all about the gees.
Below is a list of places throughout the country that will be airing live Rugby World Cup matches.
Boktown at Suncoast Casino
According to its website, there will be live entertainment and music, fun activities for the kids such as face painting and jumping castles, cold drink and beer specials, bars and scrumptious food as well as great competitions and giveaways.
In addition, you can expect appearances by SA rugby legends, provincial stars and Bokkie - the official Springbok mascot.
Kingston Park Field at the Shark Tank
A giant screen will beam the Boks game live to fans for free. Organisers, however, say that access to the rugby stadium will be limited to 3 000 people.

On any given day or night it's entirely usual to find chatty varsity students, enthusiastic sports fans and groups of suitably suited professionals sharing a drink or nibble with their parents or even grandparents.
