Sharks rugby fans have been given the opportunity to take pictures of themselves with the 2018 Currie Cup at the ABSA stadium in Durban.

This follows their team’s 17-12 victory over the Western Province in last month’s Currie Cup finals at Newlands in Cape Town.

Some emotional fans shed a tear as they held the coveted Cup, while others could not contain their excitement as they took selfies in the Shark Cage.

“I’ve waited 40 years to actually visually see the Currie Cup and it’s emotional for me to be part of the Sharks. I don’t get emotional very often but I can promise you I shed a tear when I touched the cup,” says one of the fans.

Another fan says;”  I seriously feel speechless I never thought I’d get that opportunity if there weren’t people in here I’d scream because I’m very excited about it.  It’s actually quite nostalgic because I’ve always watched it as a little boy and never got to see it.  I think this is the first time they’ve ever let the public come and have a look at it. It’s nice to see it in person. It was amazing, I was shocked that we won because Province is a really hard team to beat.”
