South Africa will go head to head with England in the final of the Rugby World Cup (RWC) this Saturday, November 2 at 11am.

Although we can’t all be in Japan for the Rugby World Cup finals, we can join in supporting the Springboks at one of these locations.

Don't miss out on the action, here's where you can catch the game in KZN:

From the comfort of your own home

There’s nothing quite like stretching out on the couch, cold beer in hand, with a bucket of chicken wings resting on your belly as you alternate between wiping chicken grease off your lips and chugging every time your team scores a try. So, it’s really lucky for all you homebodies that this Rugby World Cup Final, the SABC reached an agreement with SuperSport to broadcast the match between SA and England, live on SABC 2 (2 November at 11 am)… so you won’t have to go to brave a rowdy bar and risk having to share your biltong and beer with anyone other than yourself.

1, King Shaka Ave, Point

What’s more riveting than a final match amid a sea of Bokke fans. Everyone’s faces smeared with green and gold paint, South African flags waving in the wind while you take in the beautiful ocean surroundings and the thrill of it all. If you’re looking for the best way to catch the game (other than at home on the couch in front of your TV), then uShaka is the place to be and its free to watch. The added bonus is unlimited pre and post-match fun and entertainment as well as something to keep family members who aren’t quite into tackles and conversions from bugging you just as your favourite fly half reaches the try line.

Be it a braai with boerie rolls with lashings of tomato sauce topped with golden fried onions, or simply bowls of roasted peanuts and raisins, chips and dips to share, for some of us, big game days are all about the food. If nail-biting matches make you hungry, look no further than Point Yacht Club where they’ll have crafts beers, craft gin and succulent lamb on the spit with other scrumptious pairings on offer all served with a side of rugby tackles and tries.
