Unbeaten DHL WP surge to the top

September 7, 2013

DHL Western Province moved to the top of the Absa Currie Cup log with an impressive 25-19 win over the Sharks at DHL Newlands on Saturday night.


DHL WP scored three tries in front of a lively crowd of 18,497 to finish the first half of the 2013 Currie Cup season in first place with three wins – and two draws – from five starts.

Province's tries were scored by outside centre Juan de Jongh, new crowd favourite Cheslin Kolbe and fullback Gio Aplon, with the Sharks answering back through second-half tries by Lwazi Mvovo, Jacques Botes and Kyle Cooper.

The home side led by 15-0 at half-time, thanks to De Jongh and Kolbe's first-half tries and the accurate boot of Kurt Coleman, with Aplon's wonderful individual effort on the 60-minute mark effectively sealing the victory for WP who bossed the match in every facet of play.

The only question in the final twenty minutes was whether or not DHL Western Province would get the four-try bonus point. And although they never achieved that fourth try, the hosts were well-deserved winners.

In the end, the try-count was three each – after a try on the stroke of full-time by replacement Sharks hooker Cooper – which gave the visitors a losing bonus point, but Province can be well satisfied with their night's work at DHL Newlands.

Fullback Aplon, who scored a cracking second-half try, walked off with the official Man of the Match honours, but he will be the first to thank those around him – in particular hooker Scarra Ntubeni, lock Michael Rhodes, captain Deon Fourie and fellow speedster Kolbe.
