The Vodacom Blue Bulls, as well as the under-21 team will try to emulate the under-19 side when they run onto Loftus Versfeld on Saturday in an attempt to keep all three professional tropies in Pretoria.
With regards to the amateur sides, the women’s team has already won its competition, while the men lost to WP in the final.
The Blue Bulls are all set to win the Currie Cup for the fourth successive time in its history for the first time and with their 6-0 record against the Cheetahs in finals, they will be brimming with confidence. Anton Leonard’s presence will also make a big difference.
The under-21’s are also on the verge of glory and with eleven members of the victorious World Cup under-21 squad in their ranks, they would dearly love to come out on top. They have, however, already lost to the Lions this year. They would love to turn the tables on Saturday, and justify their status as the favourites.
