CAPE TOWN – The sound of a piano isn’t the kind of music you’d hear on a Saturday afternoon at Kings Park or Newlands, nor does the classical and refined feel of the instrument remind you of the tough contact sport.
But on Saturday, when Western Province take on the Sharks in Durban, the piano will feature.
Not literally, but if things go Corne Fourie’s way, WP’s forwards will “move the piano” when they meet the defending Currie Cup champions in Round Two.
“Like Danie Craven always said - a win is made by the tight five. And when I was at the Lions coach Swys (de Bruin) always said the tight five moves the piano and the backline plays the piano,” the loosehead prop said.
“So we need to go out there and be physical and the win will come.”
