It’s gonna be a great game (if only we knew where it was)

The Sharks head down to take on the Pumas this weekend in Witbank… no wait, Nelspruit! Or is it Witbank? I’m not really sure.

You see, the thing is, nobody really knows where this weekend’s game is going to take place! That’s a little bit sad, isn’t it? I mean, it’s one thing for Jimmy Stonehouse to mount a passionate defence of the participation of smaller unions like the Pumas in the Currie Cup Premier Division, but when we can’t even get a straight answer 4 days before their first home game about where it’s actually going to take place, you start to wonder whether they actually deserve to be considered a Currie Cup union.

So where is it, guys? All the official websites say Witbank and yet everybody “in the know” seems assured that it’s in Nelspruit, because that’s what they’ve been told. Given that it’s not going to be televised either way, it’s probably quite important to know the exact location… or are the Pumas worried that if the secret gets out, Sharks fans will descend on the unfortunate stadium in their hordes and turn this encounter into a pseudo home game for the man in black and white?

Your move, Pumas… tell us where the game will be.

  • Im really pissed off about this!!! 👿 They never advertise if games are being played here! But according to everybody i know around here and computicket the game is here! Of course i am very excited about it since i will be there right in the front shouting like a true fan but i can’t see a half full stadium since they don’t bother to advertise it a bit.

  • @Ice (Comment 22) : @robdylan (Comment 26) :
    I received a text message last night at 19:52 saying “Hallo rugby fan, Sharks vs Pumas – Mbombela Stadium, 22 July 2011, kick-off at 19:10. Tickets at computicket, parking tickets at stadium”

    So i guess that confirms that the game will be played here in Nelspruit. 😛
