Western Province will travel to France next week for a two-match tour as part of the preparations for their Currie Cup title defence.

Coach John Dobson's team will face French teams RC Narbonne and Montpellier in the space of five days, in order to get some crucial game-time together as a unit before their domestic campaign kicks off on August 25.

The defending Currie Cup champions were invited by Montpellier, for a trip which is seen as the beginning of a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship, with potential commercial opportunities and projects between the two teams anticipated in the future.

A 29-man squad will depart Cape Town on Tuesday, August 7 and face Narbonne on Saturday, August 11 before taking on Top 14 side Montpellier on Thursday, August 16.

They will be based in the town of Millau, which is 100km outside of Montpellier.

I hope Montpellier is footing the bill otherwise the team might be stuck in France washing dishes to pay their bills

It is a good thing for SA teams to sample Europe. We have neglected our ties with Europe/UK.

I suppose that the Lions lose most of their team to Japan.
Any other teams likely to be "under strength"?

The Cheetahs have been playing some of the best club sides in Europe in competitive fixtures for the last year already. They held their own and took a few scalps too. :nod:

The Cheetahs are modern pioneers.

When I was young(ish) we had clubs like Llanelli touring South Africa. Modern travel can make that happen more often.

The five players to watch in this year's Currie Cup

The Currie Cup kicks off next weekend with some familiar and a few new faces likely to make an impact.

1) Juarno Augustus (No8‚ Western Province)
The burly No8 made quite an impact at age group level‚ but he’s now playing with the big boys. His 118m‚ 111kg frame makes him a handful‚ especially when charging off the base of the scrum.

Injury had sidelined the former World u20 player of the year for the bulk of the season before he returned for the Stormers’ last Super Rugby match.

He’s had a taste of Super Rugby with a few appearances for the Stormers but it is in the Currie Cup where defences are more likely to yield to his advances.

2) Duncan Matthews (Utility back‚ Blue Bulls)
His career soared after he joined the Blue Bulls from Boland in 2013 and he delivered some memorable Varsity Cup performances for Tukkies.

He met immediate success when he featured in the Blue Bulls u19 side that won the Provincial Championship in 2013.

Things however have levelled out a bit for Matthews the last few seasons. He has described his career as stressful given the number of injuries that have held him back.

Should he remain injury free Matthews’ trickery may prove a real treat in this Currie Cup.

3) Jacques Vermeulen (loose forward‚ Sharks)
The former SA u20 and Western Province flank has barged his way through a tough Super Rugby season with the Sharks.

He even copped a two-match ban for dangerous play‚ but now he’s ready to be part of a campaign with the Sharks who will be desperate to go one better than their defeat in the final last year.

In Vermeulen they have an able ball carrier who also gets through a mountain of work on defence.

4) Wandisile Simelane (centre‚ Golden Lions)
Simelane‚ who was supposed to trial with Kaizer Chiefs‚ only started playing rugby at u11 level.

Such was his killer side step and turn of speed‚ however‚ that his talents were soon recognised and he was called up to the Golden Lions u13 side.

He shone for the Junior Boks in the World Rugby u20 World Championships this year which has more than convince the Lions he should be unleashed in the Currie Cup.

5) Manie Libbok (flyhalf‚ Blue Bulls)
Having represented the SA u20 team in 2016 and 2017‚ great things are expected of Libbok.

Senior rugby however is less forgiving and Libbok was part of a Bulls team that spent too much time under their poles in Super Rugby.

The Currie Cup‚ however‚ presents the elusive flyhalf the platform on which to shine.

With more time and space at his disposal in the Currie Cup‚ Libbok is likely to tease and torment defences.

Nick Easter to play for the Sharks in the Currie Cup :shock:

https://www.rugbypass.com/news/exclusiv ... -adventure

Quote:
Nick Easter is set to be the first of the Harlequins coaches let go this summer to return to professional rugby, with the defence coach set to join the Cell C Sharks in South Africa for the upcoming Currie Cup season.

Easter, 39, left the south-west London club this summer following the arrival of Paul Gustard as Head of Rugby and had been out in South Africa in recent weeks, upskilling as a coach.

He is due to join up with the team in Durban next week, ahead of their season opener against the Vodacom Blue Bulls on August 25th.

Mixed feelings about Chilliboy. He's obviously got leadership credentials in him which make his selection natural, but I wonder if this is an opportunity to give a younger player a chance.

Also means that Akker is going to spend a lot of time on the bench behind Marx and Chilliboy.

On Nick Easter - looks like he'll be coaching with the Sharks, not playing. But the report is quite ambiguous.

Joseph Dweba is an absolute monster. I was surprised the he did not feature allot last season but then we had Torstan there.

He's only 22 years old and standing at 1.75m and a 105KG. Apparently he’s also very dynamic with a low centre of gravity. I think if the rumours about him are true he and Ox will do very well together.

They played together 2014 South Africa Under-20 if I'm not mistaken. Think Jason Jenkins and the Du Preez brothers were in that team as well.

I don't get to watch the juniors, their matches are seldom on tv. The problem though was that we had Marx, Robbie and Akker at the time, whic I assume is partly why he left

Rolling substitutions will be used in this year’s Currie Cup tournament and Blue Bulls head coach Pote Human is not a happy man.

The rule was introduced earlier this year in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge. Teams will be allowed to use 12 rolling substitutions during each match, of which four must be reserved for players in the front row.

Quote:
There is also the rule that when a team causes uncontested scrums, they will be reduced to 14 players on the field until the end of the match.

Why does the Currie Cup still only play with 22? All 7 teams are capable of fielding 23

Bigger unions will not be too happy, they command all the player depth which will now be negated somewhat.

I thought those ridiculous law trials were for the Varsity Cup?

Then again, Currie Cup is probably less watched these days.

Currie Cup is a joke.

Time was it was one of the strongest competitions in the world. Now a joke.
