SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux confirmed on Friday that they had been informed that the Windhoek Draught Welwitschias will withdraw from the Currie Cup First Division.

“It’s unfortunate that the Namibian team had to withdraw from the Currie Cup First Division, but our decision was that they have to pay for teams to travel to Windhoek for their home games, which they agreed to do,” said Roux.

“We’ve since been informed that they can’t do that anymore and that the Windhoek Draught Welwitschias will withdraw from the competition, which means that all remaining teams will now have a bye on the weekend they were scheduled to play the Namibians.”
