Cape Town - The Sharks will win the 2012 Absa Currie Cup title in Durban on Saturday, if Sport24 users are to be believed...

In a poll currently featured on the Sport24 website asking readers to "Pick a winner" in Saturday's final (kick-off at 17:00), some 65% of the nearly 6 000 respondents believe the Keegan Daniel-led home side will triumph over their Western Province opponents.
