Currie Cup

Our customers say that rugby is the sport at which they want their children to excel. By partnering with SA Rugby, we are actively able to work towards creating opportunities for new players as well as uplifting families touched by the game.

What better way for us to make our mark in rugby than through partnering with the world’s oldest and most prestigious rugby tournament, The Currie Cup. For 130 years, The Currie Cup trophy has been held aloft by players on their way to Springbok glory. It’s a symbol of sportsmanship and excellence in sport.

The Currie Cup has earned its place in rugby history because it’s special.
It’s not just that it has endured for 130 years, but more than that, it’s the keystone of South African rugby. The Currie Cup is where talent is identified, displayed and nurtured.

The Future of Rugby

Meet some of the interesting characters who make the world of rugby such a special place. 

Meet the Teams

As a child, you probably had hundreds of big dreams. As you got older, you may have let some of these dreams go. Perhaps someone told you it was impossible. Perhaps you were distracted by the ups and downs of your life. Perhaps that critical first step towards the life you wanted required money you just didn’t have. Perhaps all you needed was to be reminded that you already had everything you needed.

Just as DirectAxis gives ordinary South Africans the opportunity to make their dreams come alive, each Currie Cup player got to where he is by having the right people at his side and the right attitude to keep him on track. We wanted to know more about their dreams and what has helped them reach for and achieve the seemingly impossible. And who better to find out than the most prolific dreamers of all: our kids.
