Fantastic weekend in sport

South Africa faces a super sporting weekend with the Currie Cup final being played in Pretoria and Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs clashing at Orlando Stadium.

Tickets for both matches are completely sold out.

The Blue Bulls are reportedly the hot favourites to take the Currie Cup.

Featuring match winners like Morné Steyn, Fourie du Preez, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha and Bryan Habana, many world teams would be quacking in their boots to have the Bulls as opponents.

But, if any team can upset a game plan, it is the Free State Cheetahs - as the Sharks learnt in the semi-finals. Kick-off is at half-past-five.

In Soweto, Pirates will be under enormous pressure in the Soweto derby against Chiefs.

Pirates have lost three successive matches against Santos, Supersport United and Amazulu.

Bucs at one stage led the Premier League, but have now moved to the 5th spot on the table.

Pirates will be without Benson Mhlongo who broke a knee and will be out for most of the season. The match kicks off at a quarter-past-three.
