WP Jou Lekka Ding

Dis ‘n WP ding, ‘n lekka lekka WP ding , en ons kannie warrie, want ons gan weeeeeeeeen!

This was what greeted me as I arrived at the stadium on Saturday afternoon…

A group of about 20 supporters marching outside the stadium flags waving and doing every single WP chant you could think of.The thing is everytime they passed me they seemed to have gained a few more members.You could see they really didn’t have a worry and believed that their team was going to win.

I stood outside for about a good 20 minutes just taking everything in, the atmosphere was something I had never experienced before, WP and Bulls fans having mock sword fights with their fans,scrumming sessions, Bulls fans with rings through their noses, WP fans breakdancing, you name it and it was going down.

I had read somewhere this week that Newlands was expecting a crowd of around 30 000 people, well 43 042 WP and Bulls supporters rocked up for this encounter, the biggest attendance for a Currie Cup league match in 10 years.

The game in itself wasn’t one for the greatest ever packages and was marred by ill discipline and poor refereeing but nobody really cared that much as it was more about being there and part of the event.

In the first 20 minutes WP were nowhere in the game but the crowd got behind them and they lifted their game, Wicus Blaauw, Francois Louw and Joe Pieterson seeming to be inspired to a comepletely different level and each of them having standout games.WP went into the halftime break behind 16-12 but ended up eventual 25-19 winners.

After the match coach Allistair Coetzee and  captain Luke Watson were at pains to praise the team and especially the “fat boys” for their work ethic and attitude in training and would also not be lead into talking about  1st 2nd 3rd or 4th place finishes, instead they are concentrating on the Cheetahs game first and then the game after that etc etc.

Frans Ludeke praised the WP forwards for the way they played gave credit to an amazing Newlands crowd.Derrick Kuun seemed slightly bitter IMO and mumbled a couple of words that I don’t care to rattle my brains to remember.Press conferences are usually quiet affairs because the stadium has usually emptied out by then but not on Saturday, shouts of Proooooovince Prooooovince Prooooovince were still ringing out  loud and proud outside.

The one worrying thing about Saturday was all the damned hugging going on, this was a North South derby dammit, Frans and Allistair hugging each other, the players hugging each other(off camera, I watched the recording)for two teams that supposedly hate each other there was a lot of love.Not cool, but other than that, what a night!

  • I honestly can’t believe that Pro never carded a Bulls player. I was eventually screaming at him! I mean, they committed about 1000 successive fouls in the red zone, yet he was content to keep on warning until the cows came home.

  • Pro was terrible, I only had one eye on the game, but in the first half he was consistant in penalising both teams with poor decisions.

  • And, I say this begrudgingly, but Pietersen is playing quite well. His kicking was great he did alright under the highball.

    Loving Chanvanga’s attitude, he runs hard at the line.

  • Morning All! Would have loved Boeta C’s view on this game…suppose that is if he made it to half-time!! :lol:

    Was it Aplon who nearly soccered that one okes head?? Shit! If he kicked that guy on the ground – I am sure he would not have left that field alive!! :shock: He missed his head by mm’s..

    I am rather stoked – in all three my Pools on SB – I am currently in second place!! :grin:

    Well these two team might as well change strips soon with the amount of WP okes the Bulls bought before and the amount WP is now looking to buy back!!!

  • @provincejoulekkading (Comment 13) : It’s amazing how well Aus do in sport considering all the louts that play for them. I’m thinking Sailor, Tuqiri, Symonds. Only guy I think of in the same mold in SA is Hersch.

  • @klempie (Comment 21) : what do you mean, last alone jimmy cowan was arrested for being drunk & disorderly, thrashing a club he went to after boozin! The NZRU has him on a AA program!

    Lauaki was also arrested twice last year for a DUI and boozing the trashing a hotel room & bashing his girlfriend!

    David smith got arrested for DUI after the canes lost this year’s semi to the saders.

    I don’t know what news headlines you want…

    That said, why the hell is that Mbanje dude from the Zimbabwe 7s team wasting his time at the Valke, surely he can get a contract elsewhere.
