From what food to serve to how much booze to provide, we’re answering all your party questions so you can cheer on the Boks in true SA spirit this Saturday.
We’re gearing up for a nail-biting finish to the Rugby World Cup 2023, and we’re gathering our family and friends to celebrate with us. (Or mourn, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that!) If you’re throwing the party of all parties as well this Saturday, let us help you with planning the food and drinks.
Where and when to watch the Rugby World Cup 2023 final
New Zealand takes on South Africa in the Rugby World Cup final on Saturday, 28 October, at 9pm. Tune in to DStv channels 201, 211 or 490, or SABC 2, or catch the live stream on SABC Sport.
We recommend starting your party a little earlier (around 7pm) so your guests are in the proper festive mood – but not too early or they might be ready to call it a night by the time the match gets going!
Prefer to head out to watch the Rugby World Cup final? Check out this list of restaurants and bars that are live streaming the match.
