Who, when, and where will South African teams play in the Euro semifinals?

The Lions, Sharks, and Stormers will play at home, while the Bulls and Cheetahs will be on the road.

All five South African rugby teams have advanced to the round of 16 in the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup, respectively, in their inaugural season in the main European competitions.

While the venues for these playoffs have been chosen, the dates and kickoff times, which are scheduled for the end of March or the beginning of April, have yet to be finalized.

In the Champions Cup, the Sharks and the Bulls were both placed in Pool A and advanced to the playoffs.

The Sharks lost their last pool game in London against Harlequins by a score of 39-29 last Saturday, but they were able to collect a critical bonus point, which helped them secure a home playoff game against Munster.

The Bulls’ 31-7 loss to Lyon in France has forced them to cautiously rely on other results going their way. In the end, everything worked out as the Pretoria men crept into the knockout round, where they would face Toulouse.

The Stormers defeated Clermont 30-16 at the Cape Town Stadium, dominating the contest. The victory allowed them to finish third in Pool B and host a playoff match against Munster of Ireland.

Hendrikse propels the Lions into the playoffs in the South African Challenge Cup.

Both South African sides, the Lions and Cheetahs, advanced to the quarterfinals of the Challenge Cup, albeit by the skin of their teeth.

The Lions overcame a late Dragons charge to win 30-25 in Wales and advance to the quarterfinals. At Ellis Park, they will host the French giants Racing 92.

Cheetahs advanced to the round of 16 thanks to a stunning late 9-6 victory over Pau, who were eliminated as a result of the loss.
