Province is focused on playing own brand of attacking rugby in the Final - Van Zyl

Western Province captain Chris Van Zyl says they are not feeling any extra pressure with Saturday’s Currie Cup final against the Sharks being played at Newlands. In fact Van Zyl says they are looking forward to playing in front of their home crowd, and had been targeting a home semi and final all season. He says with the shorter format this season, they actually have not had too many opportunities to play at home this season, and they are looking forward to play in front of a packed Newlands Stadium on Saturday. Van Zyl says seeing a few ex Province players in the Sharks line-up, like Rob Du Preez, may add some extra spice to the game, but their focus remains on playing their brand of attacking rugby, no matter the opposition. While the Sharks’ line-out has been excellent this season, Van Zyl says they have been working on this this week as he feels it could be a key part of the game. Last week in their 35-32 win in the semi-finals against the Blue Bulls, SP Marais scored 30 of the points, 25 from his boot, and Van Zyl says it is great having Marais to turn to. Van Zyl further added he is happy to have Jaco Peyper as refereee, and says Peyper does not take any nonsense.
