Sharks to host WP in Currie Cup final

Sharks to host WP in Currie Cup final

The Sharks held off a late onslaught from the defending champion Blue Bulls to host the Currie Cup final against Western Province.
The Sharks won Saturday's first semifinal 16-12 at their ABSA Stadium in Durban _ a drama-filled game that was delayed by a swarm of bees on the pitch and ended in a tense, close quarters battle as heavy rain fell for the last 20 minutes.
Sharks flanker Keegan Daniel scored the only try and Patrick Lambie kicked 11 points to keep a Blue Bulls team full of South Africa internationals at bay.
In Cape Town, Bryan Habana scored his first Currie Cup try for Western Province as it powered into its first final since 2001 with a 31-7 win over 2009 finalists the Free State Cheetahs.
