South African rugby player’s soul is vanquished in earth shattering Currie Cup war hit
There were sickening scenes in today’s South African Currie Cup clash in the match between Western Province and the Sharks.
The disgusting hit spread like wildfire across Whatsapp groups and Twitter pages with many onlookers worried for the welfare of the Sharks player who was not expecting this emergency appointment with the chiropractor.
This game was made all the more noteworthy with this being the last time that we get to see teams play at Newlands which is currently the oldest rugby stadium on the planet.
The moment from today’s clash occurred in the 25th minute of the game with the Sharks leading the match by 0-9. Fans had been complaining on social media that the game had been a bit of slow burner – well if that was the case, then this hit poured gasoline all over the encounter.
