Op Nuweland (i.e. In Newlands Stadium) for Capetonian Rugby lovers has a special connotation understood only with a beer, friends, family, braai and biltong on match days.
This match day Cape Town can boast a Currie Cup Final, and a deserved one I might add, for the first time in 12 years. It will also be the 12th time since 1939 that this illustriuos stadium hosts the Currie Cup Final, with only Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria hosting more (17). It has also been dominated by these two teams for the last 4 years with Western Province(WP) taking part in three of the last four finals. The Sharks can boast being in their fourth Currie Cup Final in as many years, each winning the title just once in that time.
I wouldn't be serious about rugby if I never brought up the "Bismarckgate" affair so here is my two cents. The boy is undoubtably, most definately, undeniably, unquestionably, most probably, definatatly very luck and if I'm honest the more I look at the incident the luckier I tend to think he gets. It boardering on "The Hand of God -Maradona" status because I do think the Sharks dodged a bullet there. Not that rugby is losing anything with Bismarck running out in the final, he will definately add to the spectacle.
My prediction will be short "Black and White & Nothing Else".
