South Africa’s Sunday Times newspaper has leaked a version of the Super 14 draw. It is however a proposed draw and has not been confirmed.


The Semi finals are scheduled for the weekend of May 19-21 and the final on May 27.


All South African sides will be based in South Africa for their first two games. The competition will start on the weekend of the 10-12 of February. This is two weeks earlier than this year’s tournament as in 2006 their will be two extra teams.


The South African debutants, The Cheetahs will play nine of their games at home in South Africa as will the Bulls and the Stormers. The Bulls will be the first of the South African teams to meet the Australian debutants the The Force.


The Hurricanes will play the five South African teams in successive weeks. Starting in New Zealand in round three against the Cats. They then head to South Africa to meet the Central Cheetahs in Bloemfontein, followed by the Stormers in Cape Town and the Bulls in Pretoria before returning to meet the Sharks at home in round seven.


The Bulls’ draw has been quite nice to them as a reward for finishing in the last four. The teams that finished 11th and 12th have not been treated so kindly.


The Cats and Sharks will spend two weeks away from home more than any Australian or New Zealand team. The Sharks play the Crusaders, Waratahs, Brumbies, Highlanders and Hurricanes in consecutive weeks.


The Super 12 Champions kick off their campaign with a local derby against the Highlanders in Christchurch, and their matches in South Africa will be against the Stormers and the Bulls which is the same as in 2005.


The South African newspaper has listed only the South African team’s fixtures as follows.
