Sharks’ fever running high in KZN
Our blood is black and white ahead of tomorrow’s ultimate showdown between the Sharks and Chiefs in the Vodacom Super Rugby final.
While thousands of East Coasters will be glued to their TV-screens here, others fans have already made their way to New Zealand to give our local rugby stars their full support.
This is the fourth final for the Sharks players. They’ve never won the trophy before, which is why George Laas, a member of the Sharks’ Supporter’s Club, believes this is their year.
“My prediction is a tough game. I just hope that we can come back with one point. No final is a beautiful or a good game. It is going to be a one point win for us, the Sharks.
“My message to the Sharks forever is, ‘go boys go! Bring home the cup!’. KZN is watching – and waiting,” he said.
Meanwhile, former South African, Carolyn Cooke, who will be supporting the Chiefs says it was a mission getting hold of tickets for the game.
“It was really, really hard to get tickets. Online bookings opened at 8am on Wednesday morning, and if you wanted to phone it was 9am.
“So I went online at 8 o’clock on the dot, and I was put into a queue and I waited for more than a hour online. By 9.10am they were saying they were virtually no tickets left.”
The game is set to start at 9.35am SA time tomorrow morning.
