There are several warm-up matches with the air of unreality that goes with them but there is a match in Bloemfontein that is thoroughly real – the final of the 2019 Currie Cup in a competition which has run since 1889.


The man to referee the Currie Cup final this year is Marius van der Westhuizen of the Western Province Referees’ Society. It is his first Currie Cup final and a huge honour. All referees will want to wish him well.
