CURRIE CUP SPOTLIGHT: Sharks wing Sibusiso Nkosi is not paying too much attention to the underdog tag his team has been given ahead of Saturday’s Currie Cup Final against the Bulls in Pretoria.

The Bulls are enjoying a resurgence under Jake White and many believe they will secure their second trophy of the season after they were crowned Super Rugby Unlocked champions in November.

“I think we are playing in a very interesting Currie Cup right now,” said Nkosi.

“Teams have had the underdog tag and have gone on to win games, and there have been teams that have been favourites and they have gone on to lose. I don’t think the underdog tag is something we focus a lot on.

“With the Bulls having world-class coaches and having world-class players in the team they will give us all the respect we deserve because they know that we are on the other side of the country giving them the respect they deserve in our preparation.”

The Bulls have developed a dangerous back three under White and Nkosi knows he must bring his best when he comes up against Stravino Jacobs and Kurt-Lee Arendse out wide.

“I think they are both very good players otherwise they wouldn’t be selected by Jake White,” Nkosi added.

“I think we all have a lot to learn and I am a bit further down the journey than they are, so there is a couple of things that I picked up that they are yet to pick up.

“But other than that, I think they are very exciting players and I am expecting them to bring the energy that newcomers usually do have when they come onto the scene.

“I am going to pay them all the respect that I need to and I am going to play my game as if I was playing the best wing in the world.”
