WP vs The Bulls: Semi Final


As we kick off the weekend all I can think about is the Semi finals at Newlands tomorrow. WP vs The Bulls in a North vs South derby. Between the Bulls and Province, they have both won the Currie Cup more times then any other teams put together, 54 times. (WP 32 & Bulls 22)Western+Province+v+Bulls+Z7AyDLDacx4l
This match is going to go down to the wire I think, the Bulls with a full strength side again due to all their Boks returning could prove tough for this under-rated Province side. I do feel that WP have showed a character and determination to get them where they are and I don’t think they will lie down and let the Bulls run over them. I predict Province by 5 points (hoping that the Sharks lose to the Cheetahs so that we get a home final)

Keep a close eye on young Juan De Jongh in the mid field (future bok???) and our loose trio (D.Vermulen, F.Louw & Luke Watson) who have played so well not even Schalk can make the starting line up!

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
