Sharks bank on Curwin to punish Bulls in Final
CURRIE CUP SPOTLIGHT: Flyhalf Curwin Bosch will once again be a key figure for the Sharks when they face the Bulls in Saturday’s Currie Cup Final at Loftus Versfeld.
The Springbok has been in excellent form recently and his teammates will be looking to him to steer them to victory in Pretoria like he did in Cape Town last weekend.
In the semifinal against Western Province, Bosch showed how deadly he is with the boot after landing a few long-range penalties and a drop goal to help his team to a 19-9 victory.
“The Bulls will probably not want to give penalties around about that 60-metre mark,” said Sharks No.8 Sikhumbuzo Notshe.
“We are happy to have him in our team. I think he is probably the best striker of the ball in the country at the moment because of what he has done at sea level.
“I’m glad he is in my team because if there are any penalties around that [60-metre] mark, they are going in.”
Sharks wing Sibusiso Nkosi echoed Notshe’s sentiments about Bosch’s performances.
“I can see the sparkle in his eyes again. He is on fire right now and everything that he puts his boot to seems to work out and I love that,” said Nkosi.
“As a teammate, I am looking to give him as much confidence as possible and we are looking to give him opportunities to have a crack at goal because right now he is scoring everything that he is hitting.”
