first_imgWednesday Oct 31, 2012 Western Province beat the Sharks to win dramatic 2012 Currie Cup Final Western Province upset the Sharks with a well deserved 25-18 victory in a dramatic Currie Cup Final at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday. It was their first title since 2001, and came about through some gutsy play and well taken opportunities. Earlier in the week you saw Juan De Jongh’s fantastic effort, the only try of the game, so here is a look at some of the other moments of what was a great final, that went right down to the wire.The Sharks got off to a good start as Patrick Lambie kicked the points on offer, giving them a 12-3 lead before Western Province came back through De Jongh.Late in the second half young Province flyhalf came into his own as he slotted two drop goals, one shortly after another. The second was an unbelievable effort that was taken with his wrong foot, and only just scraped over the uprights. With time almost up the Sharks managed to win a penalty 95m out and launch an attack from deep that almost paid off, if it were not for a superb bit of defending from fullback Joe Pietersen.The Sharks created a 2-on-1 for Louis Ludik and with Charl McLeod ranging up in support, he chose to make the pass. Fullback Joe Pietersen read it beautifully though and pounced on McLeod, snuffing out the opportunity. The ball got knocked on a dramatic late try was prevented.The Sharks had another opportunity to attack well into extra time, but after many phases of play and some great defence from Western Province, they coughed up the ball.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
