Premier Helen Zille Hails Western Province Currie Cup Victory

29 October 2012

Premier Helen Zille was among crowds that awaited the arrival of the triumphant Western Province rugby team at the Cape Town International Airport.

Western Province overcame the Sharks in a tightly contested 2012 Absa Currie Cup final to end an 11-year major trophy drought. The 25 -18 final score was a true reflection of a game played at a great temperament that had all the makings of a Currie Cup final.

The Premier had to break away from the 110% Green - Better Together Cycle Tour to meet the team. Premier Zille said the team’s achievement was a glorious occasion for the people of the province. “It’s a great day of celebration for everyone in the Western Cape,” she said.
