Frogs’ midweek game called off

The match between France and a SA Invitational XV scheduled for 17 June in Wellington has been cancelled.

A fortnight ago, Saru announced they would select a South African team compromised of Vodacom Cup players to face France in a midweek friendly – a big chance for the top performers in the domestic competition who seldom or don’t receive Super Rugby opportunities.

The game was set to be played between the Springboks vs France Test on 12 July and the Argentina vs France Test in on 19 July.

But Saru announced on Tuesday that the fixture has been cancelled because of logistical difficulties.
