The Currie Cup highlights have been scarce the last two weeks as for one reason or another, they weren't top of the list and other tournaments got featured. If anything major happened, it would have been shown though. To make up for it anyway, here's full highlights of three games from the weekend, Round 11.
The three games featured are the Sharks against the Free State Cheetahs, Pumas vs Western Province, and the Blue Bulls against the Golden Lions.
The Sharks continue to look like tournament favourites as they showed their strength against the Cheetahs in Durban with a convincing 30-16 win. Springbok Ryan Kankowski made a difference as he was involved in setting up tries, first for Odwa Ndungane, then later for Rory Kockott. Willem Alberts and Charl McLeod also crossed for well taken tries.
Western Province, now second on the table behind the Sharks, travelled to the impressive Mbombela Stadium on Friday night as they took on hosts the Pumas. They proved too strong as they crushed them 62-10 in what was eventually a one sided contest.
The Jukskei derby between the Blue Bulls and the Lions was a far closer affair, with the revitalised Lions fighting back from being 24-9 but eventually going down to their neighbours, who won 24-21 at their home ground of Loftus Versfeld.
Please note that the three clips are presented as a playlist, so you can easily skip to the match you'd like to see (click the second button), or just sit back and watch all three as they'll start automatically once hitting play.
