Getroud met rugby is a South African television series which premiered on kykNET on 7 April 2009. It was marketed as an Afrikaans-language version of the British television show Footballers' Wives; the title literally translates to English as Married To Rugby. The series is one of the most watched drama-series on KykNET.[citation needed]


Getroud met rugby is a drama revolving around four stars of a Johannesburg rugby team and their wives as they become involved in various interconnected scandals.


Getroud met Rugby was developed by Deon Opperman with his wife, actress Hanli Rolfes-Opperman, who is also part of the main cast. Most of the actors on the show are well-respected Afrikaans actors. Cast members Ivan Botha and Altus Theart appeared in the film Bakgat in 2008 in which rugby was also the integral plot point.

The series was shot on location in Johannesburg and Krugersdorp on a schedule divided into two segments, the first from 29 September – 20 December 2008, and the second from March to May 2009.[1] The crew utilized Sony EX3 High Definition cameras. Post-production was handled by The Film Factory, a post-production house in Johannesburg.


From the end of 2010 to March 2012 the show was on a hiatus due to the filming of the movie Getroud met Rugby: Die Onvertelde Storie. Filming resumed in March 2012.

KykNET announced on 15 October 2009, that Getroud met Rugby had been renewed for a second season.[2] Season 4 premiered on 17 July 2012.


Starting 4 April 2016 a new format (as a soap) was adopted, broadcast on kykNET on weekdays at 18h30, in 30 minute episodes.
