To much of the same results in boring matches
October 12, 2012, 14:22:00

We are coming to the final part of a very long and exhausting season for both players and fans. Springbok fans had to endure a tough international season the boks sputtered and splotched to try and get into gear to take on the likes of the top Southern Hemisphere teams. Well if your national team isn’t doing that well then at least we can look forward to the currie cup games. Not really, I’m not sure if anybody else feels the same, but I really don’t care for the current games to be played in the currie cup and who is going to win it. We had to put up with weaker teams all season playing sub standard rugby and at the same time having to sit on this see saw between the same 5 teams, although I have been actually supporting Griquas rather than my own WP team as the play one inconsistent game after another. For me watching pretty much the same 5 teams play all season has become extremely boring to watch. I would rather enjoy seeing the currie cup play all of the provinces then having to watch another dull affair. With all of these excessive derbies I feel that it has lost its value.

King corn one wonders if they should extend the Currie cup and make it for all Provinces. But play it while the Super 15 is on. The Currie Cup has become a third tier comp.

 I remembered that it used to all 14 provinces but then they got rid of it because our Super rugby teams didn't seem to be doing that well, so they decided to only include the strongest teams to prepare our boys and make them more competetive. But now that the Super 15 has expanded with additional games it seems almost pointless. The other bug bear is to see all the empty stadiums, nobody seems to care about going to these games anymore. Jo publick is being fleeced to go to Super games that is charged double than currie cup games, so when it comes to the CC the fans just simply have no interest. 

I would like SA to protect and preserve its local rugby heritage.
