The Vodacom Bulls and Xerox Lions will meet in the first of the two Carling Currie Cup semi-finals on Saturday, 23 January, as SA Rugby announced the kick-off times on Tuesday.

The Jukskei derby, which will mark the second successive match-up between the Vodacom Bulls and Xerox Lions at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, will begin at 14h00.

All eyes will then switch to DHL Newlands in Cape Town for the semi-final between DHL Western Province and the Cell C Sharks at 16h30.

The two winning teams will battle it out in the final on Saturday, 30 January.

The dates of the semi-finals and final were moved out by a week respectively as a precautionary measure to ensure tournament integrity and allow the participants to manage COVID-19 challenges.

With defending champions, the Toyota Cheetahs, dropping out at the conclusion of the pool stage, a new Carling Currie Cup champion will be crowned this season.
