Currie Cup best tries mix - Round 9

Currie Cup best tries mix - Round 9

We've got some highlights from the Currie Cup for you now, with the best action from three of the matches that took place in Round 9 of South Africa's fiercely contested domestic competition.

Western Province produced a great 25-19 win over the Blue Bulls at Newlands. Fullback Joe Pietersen scored 20 of their points, with captain Luke Watson scoring an impressive pushover try from the back of the scrum.

One of the games of the weekend was in Potch on Friday night as the Griquas narrowly defeated the Leopards 34-33. Lying third on the log currently, Griquas scored 4 tries through Trompie Nontshinga, Ryno Barnes, Barry Geel and Bjorn Basson.

A player that caught the eye once again this weekend though, was Leopards winger Bom Samaai, who looked dangerous whenever he touched the ball, and finished a great try after a storming run by lock Rudi Mathee.

With three minutes left in the match, the Leopards had a great chance to sneak the win after another great run by Samaai and some slick handling. Unfortunately the last pass didn't stick though, for what would have been a brilliant try.

The Cheetahs continued their good run of form as they picked up their fifth consecutive win by beating the Lions 20-16 in Bloemfontein.

They scored a great try through Frans Viljoen that was set up by a quality chip and chase, then some trademark Cheetahs handling, including Jongi Nokwe once again showing his class.
