Rugby World Cup: Ask your question and win


Have you ever wondered what on earth an eight man or a flanker does on the field? Are you too shy to ask how exactly points are scored in a rugby match and what is the difference between a drop goal, a goal kick and a penalty kick? Are you unsure how people see when a ball has been passed forward?

Perhaps you have played rugby yourself and your questions are a bit more technical. You may be wondering if a specific tackle in a game was dangerous or what exactly happened in the scrum. You may have questions about the referees, decisions made or players selected.

Arnold Geerdts journalist and sports presenter, will answer readers’ questions during the Rugby World Cup 2023 right here on RNews.

You also have the chance to win a wonderful holiday at one of the ATKV’s seven resorts nationwide!

What can you win?

At the end of the Rugby World Cup, we will select a winner from the reader questions we have received.

The person, who according to the judging panel asked the best question, wins a weekend (Friday 14:00 to Sunday 10:00) in a standard unit at one of ATKV’s seven self-catering holiday resorts of his/her choice.

These resorts are ATKV-Buffelspoort near Rustenburg, ATKV-Drakensville at the foot of the Drakensberg near Bergville, ATKV-Eiland Spa near Tzaneen, ATKV-Goudini Spa near Worcester, ATKV-Hartenbos along Mossel Bay, ATKV-Klein-Kariba near Bela Bela and ATKV Natalia at Illovo in KwaZulu-Natal.

The price includes accommodation for four people. Because these are self-catering resorts, you must provide for all meals yourself. There are restaurant and shopping facilities if you wish to make use of them.
