    I am actually torn between the two sides. I wish that both could be added to the Currie Cup Premiere League.

    My heart say Pumas just to compliment Jimmy Stonehouse for what he achieved with this team the past three years.

    But my brain say we need the Griquas in the Currie Cup.

    Go full throttle boys!!
