There aren’t enough words right now, so I’ll keep this short.

The Sharks are the 2010 Currie Cup champions after beating Western Province 30-10 in the final.

I am SO, SO proud of everyone involved in the Sharks Union and team. Well done, enjoy the massive celebrations and we will dissect this massive game – and wonderful season – in the days and weeks to come.

  • LIKE YOU SAID ROB… WORDS CANNOT EXPLAIN HOW WE FEEL!!! WELL DONE TO THE BOYS and congrats to WP for making the final and making it tough for us. Well done to Lambie, Mvovo and Daniel (without the s) for making the Springbok team.

    And to the rest of nay sayers… you can all SUCK IT!!!!!!

    We beat the Mighty BULLS team with all their boks and experience and a WP team with a backline that will but most international sides to shame. In other words, you are WELL DESERVED CURRIE CUP CHAMPS.

    Watched the game with three Bull’s fans who were very impressed to say the least. Great feeling.

  • Andries Strauss – you were the consumate professional and the ultimate team player. Thank you for your amazing service to the Black and White. You’ll be missed, MOTM performance tonight – you, along with Charl McLeod, allowed Pat Lambie to shine this season. Cheers Dries!

  • My voice is shot. Woke up this mornin with butterflies that refused to leave me. Went to my local, watched Strauss have the game of his life, Bismarck being his old self (and controlled), Mvovo making metres for the Sharks, and the rest of the team making the WP players look absolute lost. The players got up after a tackle to put in that xtra effort. Like sykes stopping the drive, but pressurising Aplon into a fumble and Lambie scoring his second. ShArks’s got talent. Absolute ….FANTASTIC

  • What a magnificent performance from The Sharks, possibly the best seen in Durban for many a year. The commitment from every player was outstanding and they deserve all the plaudits that will come their way, even from those who had written them off.
    Thank you boys from the depth of my heart for a game that will be remembered for decades. And now, after rest and recuperation, the super 15 looks like it could be a dream about to come true.

  • Would like to agree with the comments about Andries Strauss. What a game he had today; those tackles were crunching and amazing. Good fortune for the rest of your career, Andries.

  • I have added Keegen to the squad in the rugbypedia app. I have put in brackets after his name the words “At Last”. I think I will leave it like that until I see him run onto the field and touch the ball. Well done Sharks, I am might mighty proud! This was the greatest Currie Cup year in a long time. WE DID IT!

  • Comment 36, posted at 31.10.10 05:45:07 by rugbypedia Reply

  • Unbelievable performance, the severity of some of those tackles reverberated watching live i can tell you! Personally am gutted Andries is leaving, he is the perfect type of player outside of McCleod and Lambie! Don’t think I’ve seen a harder tackling centre since Pieter Muller in the Black and White. Can’t we pull a rabbit out the hat and tell Cheetahs they can keep Bosman?!

  • The Sharks players have all done incredibly well, no debate on that.

    But what an unbelievably good coach John Plumbtree has turned out to be for the Sharks. Top of the log 3 years in a row and winning 2 of the last 3 finals…. well done John, you are a legend.

    Now just imagine how well the Boks would do with Plum at the helm.

  • I need to add my congrats to the Sharks-Fantastic achievement now on to the S15 IT is hard to single out one player in the team for special accolades however Dries you have really stood up and you are the main reason for our success You shut down JDV so the WP back-line could not play
    You will be sorely missed and it is a true saying that only when a person leaves do you realise how valuable they are
    All the best for your future career and if it doesn’t work out there I’m sure the Sharks will welcome you back with open arms

  • Breaking news- Stefan Terblanche is staying for another season as a player. The coaches rate him as an outside centre. I, for one, thought it would be the perfect time for him to retire but he’s never let us down and he’s a great captain. Well done Turbo- sharks legend.
