Currie Cup best tries mix - Rounds 12, 13 & 14

The Currie Cup has now reached the Semi Final stage, with the top four sides in South African provincial rugby going head to head this weekend for a place in the final of the longest running domestic rugby competition in the world.

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve posted highlights from the tournament, so today we’ve got a compilation of some of the best tries scored over the last three rounds.

After 14 matches each, the top four are the Natal Sharks, Western Province, the Blue Bulls, and Freestate, who squeezed in ahead of the Griquas, who were the early front runners, despite being a traditionally smaller union.

So the Sharks will host the Cheetahs in Durban on Saturday, and the Blue Bulls will travel to Newlands in Cape Town to face Western Province.

This selection of tries features a bit of the best from all sides involved in the Semis, and others. We start with that classic try from Fabian Juries, and also include another two great moments from the Sevens flyer.

Another stand out is a superb try by runaway train Tiaan Liebenberg for Western Province against Boland. Anyone who’s seen him play (he was at Toulon last season incidentally) will know that he’s one of the hardest running hookers in the game. Great stuff from the big guy.

The table topping Sharks scored a few great tries too, with Ruan Pienaar, hooker Craig Burden, and number eight Ryan Kankowski all finishing off neat team efforts. The last try for Kankowski was made by the unstoppable Jean Deysel, who as usual, swats off tacklers like flies.

One of the best tries though was scored by Griquas centre Barry Geel, who got on the end of a brilliant move, fumbled, but then regathered brilliantly.

Enjoy the tries, and the Semis this weekend.
