THE Toyota Free State Cheetahs will host the Xerox Golden Lions and the Vodacom Blue Bulls will meet DHL Western Province in the Currie Cup Premier Division semi-finals.

The semi-finals will be hosted in Bloemfontein and Pretoria on Saturday, 15 October.

These pulsating fixtures in the Currie Cup were confirmed following a gripping final round of pool matches.

It saw the Cell C Sharks drop out of the competition following their do-or-die encounter against the Xerox Golden Lions, while DHL Western Province slotted over a late penalty goal in a nail-biting clash against Boland to book their place in the semi-finals.

The Cheetahs were rampant against the Northern Cape’s Griquas in the final pool match of the season as they cruised to a 63-26 victory after running in an impressive nine tries.

The Free State side finished top of the log, still undefeated after pool round matches played home and away.
