The premier of KwaZulu-Natal Senzo Mchunu paid tribute to the Sharks team after they won the Currie Cup.

The Sharks beat defending champions and previously unbeaten Western Province 33-19 in the Currie Cup Final at Newlands at the weekend.

"We have been inspired by this beautiful display of talent and stamina," Mchunu said.

Mchunu said that the people of KwaZulu-Natal have been on an emotional roller-coaster throughout the Final.

"We have mobilised people of this province to go to the King Shaka International Airport to welcome our heroes in style."
