No clear Currie Cup favourite

2011-10-26 11:24

Cape Town - Bookmakers are struggling to separate the Lions and Sharks ahead of their 2011 Absa Currie Cup final clash in Johannesburg on Saturday. Kick-off is at 17:00.

According to bookies Bet.co.za, the defending champion Sharks are listed at 9/10, but will be up against a determined Lions side in front of a title-starved sold-out Coca-Cola Park crowd.

The Lions, also installed at 9/10, shocked Western Province and their returning Springboks in the semi-finals last weekend and coach John Mitchell will leave no stone unturned in an effort to end a title drought spanning 12 years.

The match is bound to be a tightly-fought game of attrition, with the draw after 80 minutes an attractive looking proposition at 18/1.

Anyone fancy a flutter?

    Sharks , Beat them good. Take the Currie Cup up to show them what it looks like as most of their supporters have never seen it . Then bring it back to where it belongs. Sharks by 20

    Probably a very close game, but I fancy the Lions because of their absolute 'guts'. It will also be cool to see them achieve something again after a loooong loooong drought. Anyway - let's hope it's a great and close game, and played in great spirit, and I hope both teams rise to their potential.

    The Sharks will take it, they have way too much power up front.
