LISTEN: Former Stormers captain Corné Krige makes URC final call

It's the big final at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday and giving us his thoughts on Talking Point is former Stormers skipper Corne Krige.

All roads lead to the Cape Town Stadium this week. It’s the United Rugby Championship (URC) Grand Final between the Stormers and Munster.

Joining host Trevor Cramer on this week’s instalment of Talking Point to share their take on the final, are former tough-as-teak Springbok and Stormers captain Corné Krige and Head of Citizen Sport, Jacques van der Westhuyzen.

Against all expectations, the Stormers find themselves defending their URC title in front of their home fans. But by the same token, Munster have become hardened road warriors.

They beat Glasgow and Leinster away from home in the quarter-finals and semis. It is their sixth away game on the bounce, so home ground advantage may count for nought. It is a final after all.
