The 2010 Currie Cup Rugby tournament is nearing completion. Since July 2010 8 teams have been playing against each other in the competition. The competition has been intense over the last few months. And there have been a few upsets along the way. The Blue Bulls lost narrowly against the Cheetahs (at Loftus Versfeld) and the Pumas (in Nelspruit) and the Sharks lost their opening match against the Griquas by 6 points. The Leopards also nearly beat the Lions in one of the matches as well.
The Griquas, Lions, Leopards and Pumas have been knocked out of the competition. This coming weekend the 4 remaining teams in the 2010 Currie Cup will face each other in the semi final stage of the tournament. Tomorrow the Sharks will take on the Blue Bulls at the ABSA Stadium in Durban (kickoff at 14:30) and Western Province will take on the Free State at Newlands stadium in Cape Town (kickoff at 17:00). The teams will be battling for a spot in the 2010 Currie Cup final (which is scheduled to be played on the 30th of October 2010). Both these matches promise to be brilliant displays of rugby.
Only time will tell who the 2 teams will be that make it into the 2010 Currie Cup final. I’m sure that rugby supporters all around South Africa will be shouting their lungs out and supporting their teams in tomorrow’s matches.
