Do not support Western Problems

26 October 2012, 15:29
Tomorrow sees the Currie Cup final between the Sharks and Western Province.  Not quite the Bulls vs Kings spectacular we’ll be watching in the years ahead, but for now, it’ll do.

To be honest, I’m not a fan of either side and the jury’s still out on whether or not I’ll be watching these two teams dish up their usual schlock for 80 minutes.  However, the thought of passing up a chance to veg on the couch with a cold one and a bowl of biltong (and by that I don’t mean the wife and that dry stew she made the other night – in case she’s reading this), might just be enough convince me to sit and watch it anyway.

Even though the Bulls have won more Currie Cup Finals - since the inception of the playoffs were introduced – WeePee could one day catch their record.  Western Province Rugby Union hasn’t seen any silverware of any kind in their trophy cupboard for near-millennia now, and by Jove let’s keep it that way!

Danger men for the Sharks, there are a few:  Woolly Lambie, Mvovo, the loosies and of course, Be-e-e-e-e-east!

Danger men for Western Problems:  (no one).

So some tips then for the Durban boys, lest they self-implode again with another classic choke in the Shark Tank:

Avoid prolonged eye contact with the Province players.  Just trust me on this.

“Play the ball and not the man”, means something completely different in Cape Town.  Just so you know.

And finally, when Western Province are about to get down in the scrum, and you hear those fatal words, “Crouch, Touch, Pause, Embrace”, run like the wind!

Dumbwin’s Prediction – Sharks by 6
