Province look to take Currie Cup at home
The team is looking to win their first home final since 2001.
CAPE TOWN – It’s just over 24 hours to go before the Currie Cup final kicks off between Western Province and the Lions.
Province will be looking to win their first home final since 2001.
Captain Juan de Jongh says despite some injury niggles heading into the final, the team is ready to go.
“It’s important that we don’t focus too much on the off-field stuff; that we focus on our structures and focus on making sure that we build slowly and surely.”
Former Western Province wing Carel du Plessis believes this year’s team can emulate the class of 1986 by beating the Lions to win the Currie Cup.
Du Plessis captained the 1986 Province side to a 22-9 victory over the Lions at Newlands.
On Saturday, de Jongh will lead Province out at a packed Newlands Stadium as Province chase their second title in three years.
Du Plessis says Province has special players that can win them the final.
