There will be a different name on the Currie Cup this year after the Blue Bulls beat the reigning champion Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

The Bulls scored three tries to the Cheetahs one, with Springbok wing Bryan Habana opening the try scoring on 17 minutes.

Further tries from John Mametsa and Victor Matfield followed, while the in-form Jongi Nokwe replied in scintillating fashion for the Cheetahs.

That try put the Cheetahs back in touch as the game 28-19 as the game moved into its closing stages, but the experienced Bulls outfit was able to close out the win

It was a scrappy game, but the result sets up a mouth-watering final, which is a repeat of the 2007 Super 14 final, in which the Bulls snatched an injury time victory with a try from that man Habana.
