Currie Cup latest (Fri) brings you the news from the Currie Cup.

Boks won’t fire up Currie Cup

Bulls conditioning coach Bazil Carzis believes the results of the Boks’ conditioning programme will only be seen next year.

Carzis said the conditioning programme will benefit the players in the long term but it is not expected to have positive results when they come back to the Currie Cup for the final round of the competition.

‘Time on the field is something they will not have,’ Carzis told Sport24. ‘While they may look rested and refreshed, it does not mean the rhythm will be there from the start. Every player is different. Some guys will take longer than others to get back to their usual form.

‘We will see the results next year. The body is now getting the chance to recover and the brain time to relax. It will mean a lot for many of the players in the long term.’
