South Africa CURRIE CUP FINAL: Cheetahs and Bulls share Cup

Via Rugby Planet:

Extra time can't bring a winner

The Cheetahs and the Blue Bulls will share the ABSA Currie Cup after playing to a pulsating 28-all draw after extra time in the Final at a packed Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein on Saturday. As disappointing as it may seem that there is no winner, ultimately it is a fair result in a game in which the teams were level 25-all after regular time. [...]

It was not a match of great innovation or creativity but it was a match of immense determination and tension. [...]

This Currie Cup Final was new - the first to produce extra time. There has been extra time in two World Cup finals. This was the first extra time in a Currie Cup Final, as two great sides played themselves to a standstill in the heat of Bloemfontein spring. [...]
