WP crowned champions

2012-10-27 18:43

Durban - Western Province ended their 11-year wait for a major trophy when they were crowned Currie Cup champions on Saturday night with a battling 25-18 victory over the Sharks in Durban.

In a thrilling exhibition at Kings Park, the home side largely dominated the first half until centre Juan de Jongh’s late try - the only one of the game - enabled the visitors to take a 16-12 advantage at the break.

That appeared to shift the momentum, and after flyhalf Patrick Lambie, who kicked all the points for the home side, briefly put his team back in front, the outstanding Demetri Catrakilis slotted over two drop goals that sealed a thrilling win.

Province claimed their first title since 2001 when they beat the Sharks in the domestic final in Cape Town.

It was also the third straight final loss for the home side, who were beaten in last year’s domestic showpiece and the Super Rugby decider earlier this year.

Province took the lead inside the opening three minutes when Springbok flanker Willem Alberts was penalised for side entry, allowing number 10 Catrakilis to pop over the first points.

Lambie hit back for his side moments later when the visitors were punished for an accidental offside.

The frantic early pace continued and it took a superb last ditch tackle from Bryan Habana to deny JP Pietersen from scoring after Paul Jordaan cut through and passed inside.

The hosts went ahead after 13 minutes via another Lambie penalty, awarded when a struggling Habana, who subsequently went off injured, slowed the ball down.

Province then got on the front foot for the first time in the game, but Pietersen intercepted and booted forward as the Sharks won another penalty.

Lambie extended the lead to six points midway through the opening period, before adding another straight after a fierce scrum by his forwards.

A Jannie du Plessis shoulder charge offered Province a chance to stay in touch and Joe Pietersen, who replaced Habana, knocked over a tricky kick from near the halfway line.

That sparked some life into the Capetonians and they went ahead through a converted try, scored by De Jongh after he escaped a few half-tackles, side-stepped Lwazi Mvovo and ran in under the posts.

Catrakilis added his second penalty after the hooter had sounded to give Province a four-point advantage at the interval.

That was cut to one point straight after the break, thanks to another powerful scrum by the Sharks forwards and a fifth successful Lambie penalty.

Plumtree’s men threw everything forward for the next 10 minutes, but failed to come away with a try in the face of a dogged visiting defence.

They did take the lead when Province failed to roll away and Lambie sent over a penalty, although another Catrakilis effort shifted the advantage once again.

The young Province flyhalf then sealed the win with two drop goals as the visitors were crowned worthy winners.

      WP don't play pretty, we don't score tries? we choke? & have the little guys but we have GUTS & a never say die attitude, congrats WP. Now please can the Blue Trolls find some other nasty hateful comments to say about the CURRIE CUP CHAMPIONS 2012

      Priesterb - 2012-10-27 18:56

      gerhard.nel - 2012-10-27 19:00

      Bulls 3 years no finals, no currie cup.

      gerhard.nel - 2012-10-27 19:02

      Well played Sharks. You have a classy team that can win on any given day. I have to say though Catrakilis owned Lambie tonight.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-27 19:04

      chris.nel, thanks. You're the kind of guy I'd be happy to share a beer and a braai with. lean.sadie: "SHarks are the biggest chokers in world rugby, FACT." What a totally pathetic comment. And you don't have the facts to be back it up. You're the kind of "supporter" that make other people hate WP. Get a life, jerk.

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-27 19:05

      Priester you lost, so it seems like sour grapes. We won, so I am allowed too. Haha, j/k. Refs have been shocking all over the place. Something has to change. This was stupid. Where are all the damn trolls hiding??????

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-10-27 19:09

      Congratulations WP and AC, apologies. You CAN coach a team to win a knock out competition.

      richard.jeremy.79 - 2012-10-27 19:11

      Province are worthy winners for sure.Superb individual class by Juan de Jongh and Catrakilis' two drop goals were priceless.Joe Pietersen & Catrakilis superb tackles on McLeod and Lambie were telling.Allister Coetzee a future Bok coach???

It's called the Republic of Cape Town if you must know.Even our police and other civil servants looks much fitter and leaner than the lazy fatties and crooks that's anywhere else in South Africa if you please.

En diep dink oor 'n opvolg vir sy 11 year cupless refreintjie. So die liegstories raak nou lank in die tand, en die refreintjie is weg. Maar bietjie moeiliker om die kommingeit af te skud - so darem nie alles verlore nie ou Dofter... Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha...

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-27 20:15

      @dono, I think the ANC 'cursed' the Sharks with their uncalled 'political blessing' - urghhh!

      pieter.thefuture - 2012-10-27 20:18

      Wp : cc champs Conference cup champs Vodacom cup champs Under 19 cc champs Under 21 - lost that final, but can be fogiven, most of the under 21 players were busy winning the currie cup

      smellarat.smith - 2012-10-27 20:36

      I must say I am impressed by the generosity of the BB supporters on this website today. Were many of you guys just faking being idiots until now? Used to the Shark supporters generally being gracious. Oh but it feels good being a WP supporter tonight.

      Michael - 2012-10-27 20:38

      oh and thats just the start

      joneethling - 2012-10-27 21:41

      Throughout the match I had the feeling that Pyper was the most fearsome Shark on the pitch? Am I the only one? The comentators picked up some errors but apear to be opperating under some sort of gag order?

      joneethling - 2012-10-27 21:58

      Rated Pyper as the best before today, so a bit disapointed.

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-27 22:42

      Peyper was way bad today. Can we get any games these days that are fair an consistent? Not too much too ask. Just be consistent in what you do, eish!!!!

      omge.klits - 2012-10-27 23:59

      Yeez - but there was a lot of kick and chase in the game today - would love to see the kicking stats.

      Well done WP. @lean.sadie - the only thing worse than a "sore loser" is a "sore winner". Do you have no grace whatsoever? Someone commented above that you are the type od supporter that makes opposition supporters hate a team. I agree.

      I Just said it, to be like one of these fake profile supporters. See how it feels? It's stupid to think they choked, just like the other times WP lost, that was not choking either. It was simply the other teams were better on the day.

      ludick.media - 2012-10-28 03:12

      @Lean ... Im not a sharks or province fan....but dude...Province choked more in the last decade than an old lady in a strip club...Sharks at least won some Currie Cups...if i recall, against province itself...Leave the papsak at the door next time you make a comment....

      ludick.media - 2012-10-28 03:13

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-28 03:33

      One thing a lot of people don't seem to understand. When he does his copy and pasting he is basically calling every team losers. The Sharks, cheetahs and lions haven't won the Supercup either. Well i Think the Lions won the first one, but that was long ago as well. So one guy, is talking crap to 80%+ of the nation. Then there are people that agree with that too? Lol, that is funny.

    Jaco peyper did however try his best to help the sharks. Duplessis klap should have at least been a penalty , if Etzebeth fake headbut earned him a week of suspention. Not to mention the kick from pieterse that was ruled a knock.

      Ludick, Ettienne chill dude. We are making fun of blou.jobby copy and pasting all his crap. Did it hurt? Why don't you get on his ass too if it hurts? Or does it only matter when it is against your team?

  • nick.vuletic - 2012-10-27 18:51

    Congrats to WP, on the day you brought ur A gme. To my team, 3 finals in a row and 3 lst, terrible habit we are picking up. Superrugby for us next yr. Shark signing out. Nw my bok jersey takes centre stage.

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-27 19:09

      If they don't think they won it, before the game starts, maybe then they will actually win a game. Gotta learn sometime.

      Now this is what we all should be about. GREAT STUFFF!!!!!

      gungets.tuft - 2012-10-28 11:14

      Agree. It was WP against Sharks. The right team won, nothing to do with the Bulls, the ref, just one team better than the other on the day. I hoped for a different result but WP have been playing "finals rugby" all year, out standing defence and a blinder by De Jonge won it on the day.

  • marcello.plaatjies.5 - 2012-10-27 18:53

  • Louise Whittingstall Barnard - 2012-10-27 18:54

    Sharks are chokers?

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-27 19:31

      Hate to say it, but we use it, because everybody else calls WP that. That word should be dropped period. There is no such thing. A loss is a loss, simple as that.

      blou.johnny - 2012-10-27 20:06

      ....zero Super cups.. ..17 years.. ..Bulls X3.. ...Bhwa ha ha ha ha..!!

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-27 22:58

      Lekker, ou blou joppie. Sou jy sê die bulls het laas naweek teen die Sharks gechoke? Of was die 42-6 (twee en veertig punte teenoor ses!) vernedering op Nuweland die eintlike choke? Komaan man, wys ons dat jy meer as net 'n cut & paste artist is en trakteer ons op jou "insigte". Asb.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-28 00:49

      bj, my outie, ek wag nog op jou antw,. my ou wieletjie. Is jy meer as net 'n cut & paste artisit? Hahaha, ons almal ken daai antwoord, nè, wiltrillempie?

      ludick.media - 2012-10-28 03:19

      @MArk... Bulls het gechoke ja...maar province vergeet gou van die superfinal choke teen die bulls lyk my . . . Big time play off chokers vir 11 seisoene ...Bulls het 4 gewen , 1 geshare, 3 super titles gewen (1 teen WP nogal ek se) . . . Urg...

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-28 03:39

      When did the stormers choke? Do you even know what it means? Do you like being stupid and calling other people out, but not your own people who make fun of others? Typical. You all get sensitive when people do it to your own team, because of trolls like blou.jobbie, but then you can't handle it. Why not call him out too? What is your reasoning sine you are so smart.

      gungets.tuft - 2012-10-28 11:19

      Louise - by saying that all you imply is that the Sharks lost the match, not that WP won it. Best you choose your point of view because if the Sharks choked then WP were not good enough to win if the Sharks played well ... yes? WP won the match, enjoy, celebrate, but give your team some credit.

  • blou.johnny - 2012-10-27 18:55

    ...Patric Lambie had bad game... ..he played like a paloooooka...

      Ou Blou Johnny, jy's darem lekker suur vanaand. Vat maar nog 'n Wellington en Coke ou maat, dalk skud dit jou breinselletjies bietjie wakker. En dankie vir die geskiedenis lessie, hoor. Dis nou lankal iets van die verlede as jy dit nog nie agtergekom het nie.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-27 23:00

      kobusray, nee swaer, blou joppie vat nie Wellington en Coke nie. Daar's nie geld vir sulke luxuries op welsyn nie. Nee, blou joppie is 'n man wat die blou trein ry - spirits en wit brood. Dis sy poison.
