The Singapore Sports Hub today announced the curtain raisers preceding the three 2017 Super Rugby matches at the National Stadium. Comprising of players from the top rugby clubs, former National rugby players and ‘A’ division schools, the curtain raisers promises to be an exciting spectacle  for local rugby.

“The development of local rugby at the grassroots level together with bringing in exciting international matches has always been a priority for the Sports Hub.  For the students, clubs and legends participating in the Super Rugby curtain raiser matches, it is a great opportunity to be exposed to the international players and we believe that it will be an invaluable inexperience to play in front of a home crowd in our National Stadium,” said Mr Manu Sawhney, Chief Executive Officer, Singapore Sports Hub.

"I am pleased and very excited to see Singapore host three Super Rugby games at the National Stadium. The Super Rugby is the leading professional tournament in the Southern Hemisphere and having the Sunwolves and the South Africans teams playing on our home soil will surely raise the profile of rugby here in Singapore. More than just hosting good rugby events, one of the Singapore Rugby Union’s strategic thrust is to play good rugby. The inclusion of the three curtain raisers before each match gives the local community the chance of a lifetime to play rugby at the National Stadium. I hope that this will raise the stake for the players and inspire them to take pride in their performance on the pitch,” said Mr Low Teo Ping, President, Singapore Rugby Union (SRU).
