Cape Town - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee and hooker Scarra Ntubeni were named as the respective Currie Cup Coach and Player of Month for September.

Coetzee’s team have been the epitome of consistency and are unbeaten after nine rounds as they aim to defend their title.

Golden Lions coach Johan Ackermann was in a close second place behind Coetzee with his side featuring among the front-runners in the competition.

Ntubeni has been one of the standout players this season with his relentless work-ethic making him an important part in the Western Province machinery. The 22-year-old hooker is growing in stature and is continuing to make an impression in the competition.

Both winners walked away with R10 000 each, courtesy of the tournament sponsor Absa.

Golden Lions flank Jaco Kriel and utility back Marnitz Boshoff were tied for second place. It is the second time Boshoff has been nominated for the Currie Cup Player of the Month award, while Kriel has increasingly caught the eye in the competition making valuable contributions for the Lions.

The Currie Cup Coach and Player of the Month competitions are designed to acknowledge and reward coaches for their outstanding leadership and players for their consistency and for notably contributing to the overall performance of their teams.

The monthly winners were chosen by a media panel consisting of respected journalists and commentators.
