Super Rugby stars turn to Esports to keep competitive - Sports Leo

Esports is about to take gaming to the next level as South Africa’s Super Rugby stars swop their line drives for hard drives and take on the country’s top gamers in the new Super Cup Series.

Starting this April, the Super Cup Series will feature three weeks of top gaming action, giving South Africa’s gaming community the opportunity to take on their  Super Rugby heroes in the games of Fifa20 and PUBG Mobile.

Each week will be its own Super Cup Series with a champion crowned at the end of it. The first and last weeks will be a contest on Fifa20 and the middle week will be a battle on PUBG Mobile.

During each contest, the gaming community will battle it out amongst themselves to uncover an overall champion, and the Super Rugby players will do the same. At the end of that week, the respective champions will take on each other in the final to be crowned that week’s  Super Cup Series champion.

Sam Wright will provide the commentary to the action as she interviews  Super Rugby players and gamers during the  Super Cup Series.

Each episode will be released on YouTube and the links will be shared on and Mettlestate’s social media pages.

Registration for the first contest will open on Friday the week before, and the following two weeks will see registration take place on a Tuesday.

The gamers’ qualifiers will take place on the Wednesday of each week, and the  Super Rugby players will have their qualifier on Thursday. Friday will feature the final between the respective group’s champions.
