WP win first Currie Cup title since 2001

Western Province ended more than a decade of Currie Cup disappointment as they upset the Natal Sharks 25-18 in Saturday's final.
The Cape Town side had not won South Africa's domestic rugby crown since 2001, and twice found itself trailing the Sharks before flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis landed a penalty and two dropped goals to give Western Province the victory.
Western Province center Juan de Jongh scored the only try of the game, while Sharks flyhalf Patrick Lambie scored all the points for the home side as he kicked six penalties.
