Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province

Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province

Despite an early start to the Currie Cup, Western Province have now lost two on the trot, first to the Sharks , and then this past weekend going down 29-24 to the Cheetahs. It was a good win for the visitors, with this try being the best from the match at Newlands in Cape Town.

This week there wont be a best tries mix from the Currie Cup as in all honesty, there werent that many amazing tries scored. I figured this was the best from this particular match though, as it had some wonderful handling and support play from all the guys involved.

The Cheetahs put pressure on WP all night with their rush defence, and as you can see here, the policy of staying in their faces reaped rewards.

"It was special, especially because it was at Newlands," said coach Naka Drotske.

"Weve lost matches this season this season that we could have won so Im very glad were pulled this one through. Discipline was important, and it was something we knew because they have a kicker like Willem de Waal."

A Frikkie Welsh fumble allowed Sevens star Robert Ebersohn to draw in a couple of tacklers and free up Meyer Bosman, who combined nicely with Kabamba Floors (pictured above) before the support arrived, eventually allowing rapid winger Jongi Nokwe to stroll over for a neatly taken try.

If you have any other specific Currie Cup requests, please post them here .

Great hands by the number 7, and also nice inter-linking play between Bosman (12) and Kabama Floors.

Gio Aplon tackled the inside center and then got up to tackle Nokwe in goal. Another good prospect. It's good to see him getting his chance at the test level.

Wrong photo of Floors is being used for Nokwe's try.

Question September 03, 2010 1:14 am

Why don't the Bok use Nokwe on the wing?? Seems like a great finisher, why would PDV use De Villiers on the wing instead of him...?

Can someone shed some light on this for me?

Nokwe hasn't proved himself at international level, and despite being a good attacking winger, his defence aint the greatest.
But he probly wouldn't look too out of place for the Boks.

@ Anonymous, yep, I'm aware of that. Floors played a good part in the try, and there wasn't a pic of Nokwe available from that match. Apologies if it's misleading.

Nokwe has had so many chances to prove himself for the boks. His defence is poor, he doesn't tackle above his weight (like Aplon). He is also continually injured, very bad hamstring problems hampered him at WP.
