NELSPRUIT — The Steval Pumas clinched the Absa Currie Cup First Division title in fine style with a 53-30 (half-time 19-9) win over the EP Kings in the final at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit yesterday.

The Pumas were full value for their win as they ran in six tries to three as they continued their wonderful form to end the Currie Cup season unbeaten after winning all their matches during the league phase of the competition.

The hosts pocketed R1 million for winning the First Division while they also secured their place in the promotion/relegation series for a chance to play in the Premier Division next season.

Fullback Coenie van Wyk ran in a hat-trick of tries for the home team while flyhalf Carl Bezuidenhout kicked 19 points courtesy of two conversions and five penalties.
