DHL Stormers 2017 fixtures

PUBLISHED: September 20, 2016



The DHL Stormers will play the Vodacom Bulls, at DHL Newlands, on 25 February, in the opening round of fixtures of the 2017 Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

It will be the second season for the 17-round, four-conference tournament structure that sees each team play 15 matches and have two byes. As in 2016, each team will play six matches within its own conference and nine matches against other conference teams.

In 2017, the DHL Stormers will face the New Zealand franchises, instead of the Australian franchises, in some exciting clashes, with home games against the Chiefs and Blues and consecutive tour games against the Crusaders, Highlanders and Hurricanes, in New Zealand.

The DHL Stormers will end the league fixtures of the season, with their away conference fixture against the Vodacom Bulls, at Loftus.
