dbo:abstract
  • La Western Province est une équipe sud-africaine de rugby à XV qui participe chaque année à la Currie Cup, compétition qu’elle a remporté à 32 reprises et dont elle est la doyenne (fondée en 1883). Elle joue avec un maillot cerclé bleu et blanc et évolue au stade de Newlands au Cap. Le club ne doit pas être confondu avec les Stormers qui évoluent dans le Super 14, auxquels il fournit toutefois l’essentiel de ses joueurs ainsi que les infrastructures (siège, administration, stade) et l’encadrement sportif. Un rapprochement plus fort entre les deux entités a été décidé l’été 2006, notamment pour des raisons commerciales et publicitaires. (fr)
  • Western Province Rugby (auch: WP Rugby; offiziell: Western Province Rugby Football Union; afrikaans: Westelike Provinsie Rugbyunie) ist der Rugby-Union-Dachverband von rund 90 Amateur-Rugbyvereinen mit 12.000 Mitgliedern im Ballungsraum Kapstadt. Er wurde am 30. Mai 1883 gegründet und ist Mitglied der South African Rugby Union (SARU). Die seit 1996 in eine eigene Aktiengesellschaft ausgegliederte Profiabteilung der Auswahlmannschaft des Provinzverbandes ist südafrikanischer Rekordmeister. Aus Sponsoringgründen wird sie offiziell DHL Western Province genannt. Ihre Spitznamen sind WP (Wipi ausgesprochen), Province und Die Streeptruie (dt.: Die gestreiften Hemden). Western Province bildet außerdem seit 1998 zusammen mit den zwei anderen Rugbyprovinzverbänden am Westkap und ihren jeweiligen Auswahlmannschaften, Boland Rugby Union (Boland Cavaliers) und South Western Districts Rugby Football Union (SWD Eagles) eine professionelle Franchise namens Stormers, die in der internationalen Super-Rugby-Meisterschaft spielt.

  • Western Province es un equipo profesional de rugby fundado en 1883 en Ciudad del Cabo, y que compite anualmente en el campeonato sudafricano, la Currie Cup. El club está dirigido por la Western Province Rugby Football Union, que también dirige al equipo de los Stormers que compiten en el Super 15. Creada en 1883, la nueva Union comenzó a competir en la Currie Cup desde su primera edición en 1889, conquistándola ese año y hasta 1898 sin excepciones, demostrando que era la Union más potente del país. Este dominio fue aplastante durante décadas, de tal modo que conquistó 22 de las 30 ediciones de la Currie Cup hasta finales de los años 60, cuando Northern Transvaal tomó su relevo como equipo dominador de la competición. En las filas de Western Province militan actualmente grandes estrellas del rugby mundial como Bryan Habana, Schalk Burger, Jaque Fourie o Jean de Villiers, componentes indispensables de la selección sudafricana de rugby que ganó el mundial del 2007, y ha terminado la temporada 2010 como subcampeón al perder en la final por 30 a 10 frente a Natal Sharks. Desde la llegada del profesionalismo al rugby y la creación del torneo Super 12 (hoy Super 15), el club ha sido la base sobre la que está formado el equipo de los Stormers, uno de los 5 equipos sudafricanos que compiten en el torneo Super 15 contra equipos neocelandeses y australianos por el cetro del rugby en el Hemisferio Sur. El Western Province juega sus partidos como local en el Newlands Stadium de Ciudad del Cabo, conocido en Sudáfrica como la casa del rugby sudafricano, y que tiene una capacidad para 50.900 espectadores.

  • DHL Western Province is a South African rugby union team, based in Newlands, Cape Town, that participates in the annual Currie Cup and Vodacom Cup tournaments. Founded in 1883, the team has won multiple titles, a record of 34 Currie Cup titles including the inaugural competition, the Vodacom Cup, the Absa Nite Series, and the Lion Cup. The club has the most supporters of any Currie Cup team. The Club is nicknamed Die Streeptruie ("The Striped Jerseys" in Afrikaans) in reference to their legendary blue and white hooped jerseys. These Striped Jerseys were the colours of Malmesbury Rugby Football Club, established in 1881. They are also known simply as "Province" by all South African rugby lovers, while Afrikaans-speaking supporters also refer to the team by its abbreviation, W.P. (pronounced: "vee pee" ["ee" as in "beer"]). Western Province were the 2012 Vodacom Cup Champions, having defeated the Griquas in 2012 by 20 points to 18. They also are the 2014 Currie cup champions, having defeated the Lions 19–16 in the final. Western Province is the only South African Team besides the Blue Bulls to have appeared in every final of every competition in South African rugby: the Vodacom Cup, the Lion Cup, the Absa Nite Series, the Currie Cup and the Super Rugby Competitions (as the DHL Stormers). Another accomplishment of Western Province, which no South African team has ever been able to match is the double victories over the All Blacks the first being (10–3) played on 15 August 1928 and again (12–11) on 16 July 1976, while several countries have never been able to beat the All Black team, Province managed this feat. In 2010 province again did a remarkable victory over all of New Zealand's five super unions, this was the first and only time such an accomplishment has been achieved. Province has also beaten the Wallabies 17–6 in a thrilling encounter in 1963. Province has also drawn to other countries including England in 1984 with a score of 15 all, however province has beaten the British and Irish Lions numerous times, including three times in 1903 and won another match in 1924, the match then had been regarded as "test" status. The only two teams to have beaten overseas countries as well as combination teams (Lions) are yet again the Blue Bulls and Western Province. Province was literally unstoppable by any other opposition in the 1980s except for Northern Transvaal. Among the ten Currie Cup trophies in the 1980s 5 went to Province 4 went to Northern Transvaal and 1 was shared, this shows the dominance between the two teams and the constant intense rivalry between the unions. Since 1983 Western Province has been sponsored by Adidas, in 2013 this will mark the 30th Anniversary of the sponsorship and the 130th anniversary of the team itself. In 1983 Province launched their centenary jersey of which 50 only ever came into existence, but this is not the rarest province top, the rarest being a complete maroon kit of which only 15 were ever made, this team played under the WP Presidents XV. The maroon jersey along with the centenary jersey as well as the original Stormers orange tops are the three most sought after Province and or Stormers tops. Team sponsor DHL has officially renewed their sponsorship with Western Province until 2016, following an emphatic 2012 season. Western Province currently combines with Boland Cavaliers to compete as the DHL Stormers in the Super Rugby competition. (en)
