Picking Province

There will be more misery for the baby Bulls in the Currie Cup this weekend. But there will be plenty of smiles for Capetonians at Newlands.

The Bulls, on what I have seen, are the worst in the competition. They may struggle to get another win this season.

Western Province have been the best, with the Lions not far behind and the Sharks improving with each weekend.

The Sharks have selected a decent side for this weekend’s premier match against Province in Cape Town.

The experience of Butch James is a good starting option but it won’t be decisive to the outcome.

Province, at home, have the edge. They won’t win easily but they will win.

The Lions have too much pace to their game to stumble in Kimberley and as stated my beloved young Bulls just aren’t good enough at the moment. The Cheetahs will crunch them.
