Rassie Erasmus the SA Rugby Director, was the head coach of the Free Stater’s in 2005 when they came out victories over the Vodacom Blue Bulls in Versfeld.
“Outside of Bloemfontein, virtually no-one gave Rassie and his team any chance to win that final in 2005, but they did – and that is the magic of the Currie Cup,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby.
“As the seven teams in the Premier Division gear up for what promises a blockbuster season, with no room for error, we decided it would be great to relive wonderful Currie Cup moments through the people who were there and experienced first-hand what this competition means.
“But it’s not only the ‘old guard’ who feature we’ve also spoken to a number of up-and-coming youngsters to get their idea of what it means representing their unions in the oldest provincial competition in the world.”
