JOHANNESBURG - SuperSport on Friday made a once-off agreement with e.TV to broadcast Saturday's rugby match between South Africa and England.

Last week, some rugby fans expressed their disappointment on social networking sites when the game was not broadcast on a free-to-air channel.

While negotiations with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) were taking place, no agreement was reached.

SuperSport spokesperson Clinton van der Berg said the channel will broadcast the match on Saturday at 5pm.

"For [DSTV] Compact viewers, the match will be on SuperSport 4 at 7pm and then e.TV will have a late broadcast at 10pm."
