WP, Sharks advance to the Absa Currie Cup final

DHL Western Province and The Sharks on Saturday booked their places in the Absa Currie Cup final in Cape Town next week following well-deserved victories in their semifinals against the MTN Golden Lions and Toyota Free State Cheetahs respectively.

Defending champions, Western Province, automatically earned a home final with their 33-16 victory against the Lions at DHL Newlands after finishing the round-robin stages as the top team, while the Sharks defeated the Cheetahs 33-22 at Growthpoint Kings Park in Durban.

Next week’s match-up will mark the second successive showdown between the teams in the Absa Currie Cup final, while it will also mark the Sharks’ fourth successive final appearance.

In the other big match this weekend, GWK Griquas pipped the Steval Pumas 21-19 in their first Absa Currie Cup promotion-relegation clash in Kimberley on Friday. The teams will meet again in Nelspruit next week to determine which side will participate in the Premier Division next year.

In the Absa Junior Provincial Championships, the Vodacom Blue Bulls and DHL Western Province Under-21 teams and the MTN Golden Lions and Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-19 teams booked their places in their respective finals next week. These matches will be played in the build-up to the Absa Currie Cup final at DHL Newlands.
