4. Sterkte aan die 0/19's en die 0/21's. Maak ons asb trots Saterdag. Die is hier waar die volgende Super Bul span se grondplate vasgeskiet word.

Ek kyk vanaand na Superrugby en besef toe weereens dat 'n Curriebeker finaal sonder die Blou Bulle as een van die spanne in die finaal, is maar net nie wat dit moet wees nie. Kobus Wiese doen sy bes om bietjie "gees" in die ding te kry, maar dit wil maar net nie aan die gang kom nie. Sy twee mede aanbieders sit ook maar net daar en wys wit tandjies. Die persone wat inskakel klink nie baie opgewonde of oortuigend nie. Daar is geen passie in die gesprekke of kommentaar nie, en elke tweede persoon wat inskakel praat meer oor die Blou Bulle as oor die Guppies of die Visvoete!
Ek is oortuig daarvan dat die anti Blou Bul ondersteuners het so 'n groot minderwaardigheids kompleks ontwikkel teenoor die Blou Bulle, dat indien die Blou Bulle nie speel nie, daar ook nie veel uit hul geledere kom nie. Daar is nie veel wat hulle oor hul eie spanne kan sê nie, want daar word net op die Blou Bulle gekonsentreer.

LANK LEWE DIE BUL! 'N BUL VIR ALTYD!

8. Hallo Nico en Paul,

Eerstens geluk met julle spanne wat die eindstryde gehaal het, ons is baie trots op julle.
Al kry julle nie altyd al die erkenning wat julle toekom nie, doen julle afrigters puik werk met die jong opkomende spelers.

Ek wil nie graag individue uitwys nie maar moet meld ek was veral beindruk met jong CJ Stander.
Ek volg sy loopbaan al van sa skole dae af, en dus lekker om te sien die jong man groei so in sy spel wat hy lewer.

Alle beste vir komende finaal , ek hou stuif duim vas vir beide ons spanne !

9. Ja,in die oue dae het karre n ckoke knoppie gehad wat jy moes uittrek op n ysige wintersdag om jou kar gestart te kry...en as daai choke knoppie nie gewerk het nie,het jy moeilikheid gehad!! Gelukkig het my ma se 1958 Studebaker n WP knoppie gehad wat sy moes uittrek....en as die ding nie ook wou werk nie,het ons kinders altyd geskree ."Weer Probere".Daai knoppie het altyd gewerk....dis die dat ek nou nog altyd "Weer Probere" skree!!!!.Groot LOL!!

A Golden Jubilee of Currie Cup Finals
Tue, 26 Oct 2010 11:05

The 2010 Final is the 50th Currie Cup Final since 1939, the year of the very first Final - the Golden Jubilee of the Golden Trophy. South Africa's provinces have competed for a trophy since 1889.

Since 1892 that trophy has been the Currie Cup. Playing Finals have been more recent and continuous since 1968. It is the big event of the domestic season.

The Blue Bulls, formerly Northern Transvaal, have won most of them but are out of it this year when the Sharks meet Western Province in Durban..

There have been Currie Cup Finals at ten different venues. Loftus Versfeld has played host to most – 16 in all, of which the Blue Bulls (Northern Transvaal) have won 13 and losing to Western Province in 1983, Natal in 1990 and Free State in 2005. Loftus Versfeld has been kind to them. Mind you it has not been as kind as Newlands has been to Western Province. Western Province have lost a Currie Cup final there only once and that was the first one, way back in 1939.

Natal, a.k.a the Sharks, have met Western Province four times in finals - twice at Newlands and twice in Durban. Western Province have won three times. When first they met in a Final - in 1984 - Natal were in the B Section but beat the Orange Free State in the semifinal.

Natal’s only victory over Western Province was in 1995. That afternoon it poured with rain, which was supposed to have suited Western Province from the winter-rain area. In fact Natal simply outplayed them. The weather conditions almost made it an away match for Natal.

Playing at home is an advantage, but not a remarkable one. Of the 49 Currie Cup Finals so far, the home teams have won 28, four have been drawn and the visitors have won 17. That’s OK, for it seems that the visitors have a chance.

The Currie Cup finals have all happened in my lifetime and everyone has been special. Saturday's in Durban will again be special. It will be one of those "Do you remember" matches

Currie Cup Final results

Before 1939 and in 1959, 1964 and 1966 the Currie Cup was decided at a tournament or on a league system.

The total number of times each province has won the Currie Cup is as follows:

Western Province: 32 (four times shared)
Blue Bulls: 23 (four times shared)
Golden Lions: 9 (once shared)
Natal: 5
Free State: 4 (once shared)
Griqualand West: 3
Border: 2 (twice shared)

Moenie dat die laaste kolom indrukwekkend klink nie, net voordat die Bergbokke tussen ons begin grootbek raak nie. Ag shame die WP het vir 46 jaar lank die Curriebeker gespeel voordat die Bulle oftewel Noord Transvaal eers tot stand gekom het.

19. Ja,Bergie, wys jou hoe het Tvl ons verswak... maar hoekom sukkel julle so sedert ons tot stand gekom het ? En wat betref die oproep van spelers vir Weermag-opleiding, het julle nie maar dieselfde gedoen na die vloot toe nie ?Sedert 1990 was die Bulle in 10 finale waarvan hulle 6 gewen het, 3verloor het en 1 gelykop, WP het 5 gehaal, 3 gewen en 2 verloor,Saterdag se uitslag nog nie bekend en nie getel nie. Dis nou as jy iets wil bewys met geskiedenis...
