A strong overlapping between the key overseas United Rugby Championship fixtures involving the Sharks and Bulls respectively on Friday night is a slightly annoying feature of the tournament’s last-round weekend roster.

While far from unprecedented – these things can happen when all sides in a competition are in action over a single round – it is disappointing for South African television viewers, I feel, that such high-stakes games for both local heavyweights run simultaneously (at least for a generous period).

Yes, both games are covered live and in full by SuperSport on separate channels and those with PVR facilities will be able to seamlessly record one while the other is on the go, if they wish … but not everybody can do that.
