People who are passionate about a sports team are known to suffer extreme disappointment when a loss occurs and extreme elation when they’re winning. General reactions to winning include swearing and singing boisterously, breaking furniture and crying tears of joy in the shower. Reactions to loss are surprisingly similar – except the tears aren’t joyful. Get in on the action with today’s Groupon: Pay R35 for one ticket or pay R60 for two tickets or pay R80 for three tickets to the Golden Lions VS Free State Cheetahs Currie Cup match.
Every serious rugby connoisseur will say that there’s nothing better than experiencing the raucous roar of the crowd as their team wallops the competition and scores the winning try. So while match-day braais in the sun are fun, there’s nothing quite like sitting on the stands surrounded by like-minded rugby renegades while the scent of boerewors and beer permeates the air with the aromatic promise of a good time.
Experience a day in the stands celebrating the cornerstone of South Africa’s rugby heritage and one of the world’s oldest rugby competitions – the annual Currie Cup. Started as far back as 1889, the Currie Cup is first and foremost the most exciting rugby spectacle of the year; hold your breath as teams of beefy Adonis’s in shorty shorts sprint, attack and defend their way to the Holy Grail of South African Rugby – the coveted and very shiny gold Currie Cup trophy.
With two such worthy opponents as the Golden Lion’s and four-time Currie Cup champions, the Free State Cheetahs, it will be a game to remember. Watch as they engage in a ferocious cat-fight to the final in order to secure their territory in South African rugby history – and you’ll be able to say “I was there!”
Golden Lions VS Free State Cheetahs
Kick off 19:10
Sports fact: It’s been suggested the first game of rugby broke out because of a blind-date-gone-wrong between the Duke of Knoffknoff and the Princess of Hullabaloo. Because of awful table manners the Princess was so enraged with the Duke that she made her brother and his friends challenge the Duke in a game of ‘throw-ball’ with abandoned bee hives.
