The Lions broke a 12 year Currie Cup drought when they demolished the Sharks 42-16 in the final on Saturday but De Klerk - who played a key role in their revival since he became president two years ago - says they need to keep their feet on the ground.
"To win the Cup is absolutely wonderful for my young guys. It is also wonderful for my management, my committees and for the people of Gauteng for whom we were finally able to bring the Cup home again. But we must stay humble and know where this thing comes from," De Klerk told the Beeld
Their 26 point victory margin was also the biggest victory margin in a Currie Cup final since the then Northern Transvaal (now Blue Bulls) smashed Western Province 39-9 in 1980.
