The United Rugby Championship (URC) season is underway once again.

The league has grown since its inception as the Celtic League back in 2001, with games now taking place across Northern and Southern hemispheres. With the addition of the extra South African teams the URC looks to become a global rugby tournament and to have grown in strength after Stormers victory last year.
