Naas Botha has been making bold predictions - and getting them right - for years
Natal defeated Northern Transvaal in the 1990 Currie Cup final but it was the prediction of Naas Botha following that defeat that paved the way for him to make many more bold predictions for years to come.
Botha’s bold prediction came true in what has been described as one of the most bizarre Currie Cup competitions to date.
This is the story of the 1991 Currie Cup season.
Their Trans-Jukskei rivals, Transvaal, started the competition like a house on fire to establish themselves as a firm contender for the title, heading into the second half of the season unbeaten.
Northern Transvaal started the competition with a good win over Free State before defending champions Natal handed them a defeat, their first of four in the regular season.
