After an 11-year drought, WP beat the Sharks 25-18 in last Saturday's final in Durban, and paraded their new silverware through the city on Tuesday.

When the procession reached Khayelitsha, the team found their route lined by thousands of fans.

Players, including wing Bryan Habana, nearly caused a stampede when they threw money, including R50 notes, at the crowd.

As the money was thrown from the bus, fans jostled to get their hands on the cash. There were no reported injuries.
