CAPE TOWN – X-factor and physicality. That’s what Western Province coach John Dobson wants to see going into their remaining Currie Cup games.
Province have lost their last two games, against the Sharks and Golden Lions, and are fresh off a bye in Round Three. They next face the Pumas at Newlands, before concluding their regular-season campaign with two tough ones against Griquas and the Free State Cheetahs.
The Pumas secured their first win of the Currie Cup season against the Sharks at the weekend, and they’ll be keen to cause another upset at Newlands on Friday.
Until now, WP have looked rather different to the team that steamrolled through last year’s competition.
