Fans predict Sharks v WP final

2012-10-19 11:46

Cape Town - The Sharks will play Western Province in the 2012 Absa Currie Cup final - if Sport24 readers are to be believed...

In a poll currently featured on the Sport24 website, when asked "Who will contest the final?", some 40% of the over 4 000 votes cast believed the table-topping Sharks will host WP in Durban in the Saturday, October 27 final - which would be a repeat of the 2010 final won 30-10 by the Sharks.

For that to be a reality, the Sharks will have to beat the Blue Bulls in this weekend's first semi-final in Durban (kick-off 16:30), while WP will have to triumph against the defending champion Golden Lions at Coca-Cola Park in Saturday's second semi-final (kick-off 19:00).

A Sharks v Lions final - which would be a repeat of last year's final won 42-16 by the Lions - gathered 25% of the vote, while a WP v Blue Bulls final was favoured by 18% of the respondents, with the final 17% opting for a Lions v Blue Bulls climax to the season.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Who do you predict will contest this year's Currie Cup final following this weekend's semi-finals? Send your thoughts to Sport24.

    Not The Bulls Fans

      kosie.fires - 2012-10-19 12:59

      Only those that know their rugby.

      liesure.larry - 2012-10-19 14:01

      90% van di lesers op weepee24 is immm, weepee sitbokke?? verder is 90% van di lesers op weepee24, immm bietjie starrig, so di gevolgtrekking wat ons kan maak na di on-intellektuele berigie is- di voorspelling wat di "waaiers" op weepee24 gemaak het immm, net storm p03p&wind was, van daar onder??

      Fans kan maar praat. Die beker sal gewen word deur die span wat die beste is op die dag en wat honger is om die beker te wen. Wen eers die semis dan die finaal. Moet nie eiers uit broei as dit nog nie gele is.

      Nick Mallet was right - about South African fans . . . .

  • bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 11:52

    Tha fans are full of SH#T. Bulls VS Lions!!!!

      donavan.boshoff - 2012-10-19 18:01

      Garrin LAMBley - Sport24 Editor, What do you expect

  • wesley.rousseau.58 - 2012-10-19 11:56

    bulls supporters can but dream

  • MarkSchrade1980 - 2012-10-19 11:57

    Pretty much spot on I'd reckon

  • sam.swanpoel - 2012-10-19 12:03

    Will be an all north final. lions - Bulls

  • deon.louw.7505 - 2012-10-19 12:05

    The Lions and Sharks at home will be difficult to beat, but you never know with WP and Blue Bulls. Lions vs Sharks is my bet, but a WP Bulls final will also be great.

  • tshepiso.molete - 2012-10-19 12:07

    They musnt under estimate die bulle bcoz @ this stage is were they are dangerous

      acdcdclm - 2012-10-19 14:04

      @Kevin. As useless as your comment.

  • leonard.bulle - 2012-10-19 12:08

    Ek dink die fans moet eers kyk of hulle choker span die Leeus kan wen!

      MarkSchrade1980 - 2012-10-19 12:18

      I'm no province fan but even that jibe is getting pretty boring

      paul.sdoow - 2012-10-19 12:33

      i very much doubt 40 percent are wp fans so it was rugby fans that voted. . so it not only us wp fans that predict a shark wp final.

      jaco.schalkwyk.752 - 2012-10-19 16:40

      @dnar paul Make sure you here on Sunday

  • willy.vanniekerk.9 - 2012-10-19 12:10

    Based on form and a real F U for S.A.R.U it should be a Sharks Lions final, with the latter retaining their title.

  • kingswing69 - 2012-10-19 12:29

    Lions vs Sharks people !!!!!!!

      clive.wannenburg - 2012-10-19 14:45

      You bet and I see history repeating it's self. GO LIONS let show up SARU and the other clowns.

  • paul.sdoow - 2012-10-19 12:29

    and the way blowjony and fake doc talk you would swear its a bulls verses bulls final with one team having Niknak at fullback and the other team having some idiot called the Kirshinater at fullback

      blou.johnny - 2012-10-19 14:55

      ....Bulls = Super Champs X3..!! ...next please...

      jaco.schalkwyk.752 - 2012-10-19 16:40

      @dnar And neither of the two has ever gone 11yr cupless

  • denis.dendrinos - 2012-10-19 12:33

    and lets not forget the game tonight between he kings and the cheetahs, in what I rekon is going to be a preview of next years super 15. Oh - and gooooo sharks - won;t be drawn into who gong to win because anything can happen. Sadly the bulls love this tactic, fly under the radar all season, play crap then surge into semi's and finals.

  • deon.booysen - 2012-10-19 12:35

    Bulls had one lucky game that helped them into the semi's. I don't see them having any more.

  • Sammy Willow - 2012-10-19 12:44

    go sharks, playing a great brand of rugby at the minute

  • Sammy Willow - 2012-10-19 12:56

    what great semis

  • terry.burne - 2012-10-19 12:56

    The Sharks - Bulls game will be determined by the Ref !!! Sharks will want to win quick ball at the rucks and spread it wide quickly, thus negating the Bulls pack. The Bulls will try and slow the Sharks ball down to prevent that. Depending on how Mark Lawrence blows this area of the game - will determine who wins it, but it will probably be close either way. Both games are too close to call - and any one of the 4 semi-finalists can win the Currie Cup this year.

  • hc12345 - 2012-10-19 13:18

    Ha Ha !!!!

  • bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 13:23

    Dis eintlik perfek dat ons die underdogs is, nou kan die Sharkies dink hulle het klaar gewen!!!

  • theunis.botha.96 - 2012-10-19 13:31

    Regardless.Any which way you look at it,there can only be one.Sharks cc champs 2012.Any observer in his/her right/sound/sober mind and sences won't be able to say anything else.At this stage it is a struggle between the Lions and WP to determine who will feature second in the pecking order.

      andre.terblanche.5 - 2012-10-19 13:41

      So het die slim wp al vir 11j gedink........en wat het gebeur?

      bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 13:46

      There is a big difference between ignorance and confidence, yours however is the former!!! Bakkies’s best English!!!

      theunis.botha.96 - 2012-10-19 14:36

      Whenever you make a statement,you exhibition to the whole wide world where you fit in.Lightyears from "right/sound/sober mind and sences". It is strongly recommended you get some trauma counseling after Saturdays match event...for your own sake and the sake of one,maybe two people who might hold you dear to them.

      bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 15:15

      Dankie Penis, maar dit was nou te groot ingils, ek het nie n woord verstaan nie!!!
