Actually not at all uncommon for them to win the CC. They are actually defending champions. The main reason being they have their full strength squad ready for CC whereas the other teams usually contribute anything from 6 to 9 test players to the national side and have to use the CC as a development tournament for their youngsters as our squads aren't that deep (because we compete for our players against the Euro, Pound and Yen).And it would be poetic justice if the Cheetahs were to win it. I know it's not likely, but I'd love to see it happen.
Would it be better if it were the Sharks to get the boot?Do you not already consider it poetic injustice that the defending Currie cup champions are being kicked out?
5 just does not fit into 4 and every which way you cut it someone gets a raw deal. For the bigger picture and looking long term (which is SARU's mandate after all) it HAS to be the Cheetahs.
