CAPE TOWN – It’s time to roll up the proverbial sleeves.
While you’d be forgiven for feeling the 2019 Currie Cup season is still young, the single-round competition hits the halfway mark in terms of the regular-season schedule this weekend.
Saturday's game against the Golden Lions will be Western Province’s third of the season, followed by a bye, before they face the Pumas at Newlands and Griquas and the Free State Cheetahs away.
Province got their campaign off to a decent start with a 20-5 win over the Blue Bulls at Newlands, but a 32-27 loss to the Sharks last weekend means that WP will have to capitalise on their home-ground advantage on Saturday to continue chasing a home semi-final.
Centre Dan Kriel, though he admitted that they were their own worst enemy at times in Durban, said one positive is that they know what to fix, while he also praised the attitude in the camp.
