New Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer is making all the right noises early in his new job, after being quoted in the Beeld that he would not prevent his Springboks from participating in the Currie Cup.
Meyer has spoken openly about his thoughts on oversees players and wanting all the local unions to adopt a similar game plan to further the common goal, which is Springbok rugby domination, and has now further commented on his appreciation for the Currie Cup.
With the continued extentions in the Super Rugby campaign, the Currie Cup is taking a back seat in terms of interest, both from a players perspective as well as from the fans point of view.
With even more rugby being played this year, with three tests against England as well as an extended Four Nations trophy against two of the top nations in rugby and Argentina, the players will eventually have to say enough is enough.
I personally love the Currie Cup, and would hate for it to not be the premier rugby competition in the country, but all signs point to this trophy becoming less important and more of a training ground for the stars of tomorrow.Tweet
