Currie Cup season's top stats performers

Currie Cup season's top stats performers

The Blue Bulls hoisted the Currie Cup for the second time in a calendar year after they brushed aside the Sharks in Pretoria to take the 2021 title.  

 


The Sharks were able to string many phases together but were ultimately sterile with ball in hand in the face of solid Bulls defence. The final score of 44-10 was a fair reflection on the game which was characterised by Bulls domination. The men of Loftus will be confident going into the new United Rugby Championship competition.
