Lions vs Kings
August 10, 2012 in Uncategorized
Anybody that is everybody have written about the Currie Cup that starts tonight. Me personally need another 2-3 weeks off from rugby. The Super 15 just drained me mentally.
A lot of you already chose a winner and subsequently the team that will finish 6th . 6th Spot is a potential dangerous spot because that team would have to play the winner of the 1st division for a place in next year’s Currie Cup.
Never one to be without controversy I thought that instead of predicting who would win or lose, I would rather focus on who I would like to see playing in this “Final” come the end of the year. No surprises then when you see the two teams I would personally like to see contest that promotion/relegation match.
Why? It comes after the very comical year we had. Our beloved rugby administrators made us the laughing stock of World Rugby by not being able to determine who the 5 teams for next year’s Super 15 will be, definitely guarantying that the Kings would be playing and now also still not knowing what is happening themselves.
So what does this have to do with the Promotion/Relegation match? Simple really. The winner will have bragging rights. If it is the Lions, they will certainly then have shown that they belong in any competition more so than the Kings and if the Kings win, well then they will say that their inclusion into the Super 15 is justified because the Lions Currie Cup team is the same as their Super 15 team. That off course is also dependant of the Kings winning the 1st division, which looks likely.
At this stage any team could end 6th, Strength vs. Strength will see us having a very competitive Currie Cup.
Good Luck to the Sharks. Let go “rain” on the WEEPEE parade once again. Weather in Cape Town looks crap at the moment and its going to be even crapier tomorrow!
