Weddings

Newlyweds leave wedding celebrations to get to rugby game

Their passion for rugby runs deep!

Shared values are key to a happy marriage and for this rugby-loving couple their wedding wasn't going to get in the way of cheering on their Super Rugby side.

The bride and groom apparently dashed from their wedding ceremony to Ellis Park in Johannesburg to watch their team, the Lions, take on the Crusaders.

The newlyweds were seen roaring support for the Lions, while two people behind them held up signs saying 'Just Married'.

While the Lions eventually lost 14-8 to the Crusaders, it seems love was the winner on the day.
