The Big Kick Off at stadiummk this weekend includes two matches for the price of one, and as well as the Saints’ Aviva Premiership clash with Newcastle supporters will also be able to enjoy that day’s Rugby World Cup semi-final between New Zealand and South Africa on the venue’s big screens, too.
The All Blacks put in the performance of the competition so far last weekend, the reigning champions demolishing France 62-13 and playing some outstanding rugby on their way to scoring nine tries.
But the Springboks have gained plenty of momentum since their opening day shock defeat to Japan, rolling over Samoa, Scotland and the USA on their way to topping Pool B, and then coming from behind to score a late try to beat Wales last Saturday afternoon.
This is truly a clash of two of Rugby World Cup’s heavyweights, and with a place in the final up for grabs it is a match to be missed!
The semi-final kicks off at 4pm and will be shown in the Arena Match Day Village at stadiummk, where all the usual food outlets from Franklin’s Gardens will be open, and entry is included in your match ticket.
Saints versus Newcastle itself kicks off at 1:45pm, with the main stadium and Arena Match Day Village opening at 11am. Tickets remain on general sale throughout the week at www.tinyurl.com/SaintsFalcons1516.
