Get ready to see your Super Rugby superheroes in action at the Cape Town Stadium on February 3 – with their superhero kit and all.
SA Rugby revealed the special jerseys on Tuesday that the Lions, Sharks, Stormers and Bulls will wear on what they’ve dubbed #SuperHeroSunday, when the four local Super Rugby teams will lock horns in the last warm-up games at Cape Town Stadium before the tournament starts.
The Lions will take on the Sharks at 2pm, while the Stormers will face the Bulls at 4pm on Sunday, February 3.
They will be donning their new Marvel superhero-inspired jerseys for the first time in a match, with the Lions adopting Spider-Man, the Sharks taking on Black Panther, the Stormers are associated with Thor and the Bulls will resemble Captain America.
SA Rugby said on Tuesday that the unique jerseys will be worn during most local Super Rugby derbies, while the teams will wear their usual team strips against overseas sides.
