DHL Western Province will be giving their supporters an opportunity to have their photo taken with the Absa Currie Cup trophy on Wednesday, November 14 at DHL Newlands – for free.
The Golden Lions Rugby Union announced the MTN Golden Lions team to play DHL Western Province on Saturday, 20 October 2012 in the second semi-final match of the 2012 Absa Currie Cup competition, this afternoon.
The Blue Bulls go into this weekend’s matches sitting bottom of the log, but amazingly they can still sneak in for a semi-final today.
Both teams can still qualify for the semi’s but both could also face the relegation play-off match which makes this a mouthwatering encounter with all the Boks back.
Games between these two teams are always unpredictable, but it’s one the Cheetahs need to win to stay in the run for a top 4 finish.
It is do or die for the boys from ‘Die Gat’ as they host the current Currie Cup champions and log leaders, the Lions.
