The Sharks will host the Currie Cup Final!

23 Oct 17 10:00 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 38 Comments

Scarcely believable, isn’t it, after the doom and gloom of the last few years (and missing out altogether on Currie Cup semi-finals in 2015 and 2016)… but the 2017 Currie Cup final will take place at Kings Park this Saturday, kicking off at 16:00. [...]

Province hand Sharks food for thought ahead of semi-final

15 Oct 17 11:08 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 27 Comments

The Sharks appeared to have matter under control, with a handy 13-3 lead against Western Province by half time in Saturday’s final Currie Cup pool match in Durban. Some lacklustre play in the second period allowed their desperate visitors in for four tries, however, and they surrendered their proud undefeated home record in going down 20-31. [...]

All eyes on Joburg humdinger

11 Oct 17 09:44 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 22 Comments

It’s last-chance saloon in the Currie Cup and for those teams that have not yet done enough to secure semi-final participation (everyone who’s not the Sharks, stick up your hand) the stakes could not be higher. With only Griquas now completely out of the running, all of the Pumas, Bulls, Lions, Cheetahs and Western Province have work to do in this final round of games in order to make sure of their places. Problem is, there are only three up for grabs and five teams gunning for them. [...]

Enkosi, Ta Odwa!

Bok balancing act

9 Oct 17 11:38 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 23 Comments

After the unexpected excitement of Saturday’s Rugby Championship finale, all eyes are back on the Currie Cup with an absolutely crucial weekend of clashes lined up. Adding further spice is the fact that a number of non-contracted Springbok squad members will be available to their respective provincial coaches, leading to much soul-searching and anguish as those wise men attempt to find the ideal balance between picking a full strength side and disrupting whatever continuity they’ve built to date. [...]
