Paulse backs WP for Currie Cup
Breyton Paulse is confident Western Province will defend their Currie Cup title at Newlands.
CAPE TOWN - Former Western Province player Breyton Paulse says he will be doing backflips at Newlands as he predicts a win for the Cape-side.
The winger was part of the team that won the title at home in 2001.
"I'll do a backflip in my suit. I will be at Newlands. I can remember the last time I did it after the game."
Paulse says it's time the team brings pride back to Newlands.
"The Sharks won't be an easy side. They come with lots of experience and a lot of determination. They will try to make their fans proud. I'll be there shouting and let's hope the entire Western Cape will be holding thumbs for the boys."
The game kicks off at 5:30pm.
