POLOKWANE: Limpopo province will yet again miss out on the Rugby World Cup trophy tour.

This was confirmed on Sunday by Rugby South Africa when they announced the four – day tour upon the champions return.

The Springboks will touch down at the OR Tambo International Airport in Kempton Park, Gauteng at 10 : 55 on Tuesday morning.

The tour will start in Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto – concluding at FNB Stadium – on Thursday, 2 November, and take in Cape Town (Friday, 3 November) and Durban (Saturday, 4 November) before concluding in the Eastern Cape (East London) on Sunday, 5 November.

The locations have been selected for population size in the first three instances and because of the Eastern Cape’s rugby significance in the fourth

Limpopo’s best bet of seeing the trophy is in 2024 as Satellite tours to Bloemfontein, Nelson Mandela Bay and other centres will be scheduled for 2024. Such tours following the 2019 victory had to be abandoned because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
