ARDENT rugby fans who want to watch the spectacle promised by the Currie Cup Final this coming Saturday don’t need to scratch their heads with indecision about where to watch the game. Rather opt for a win-win solution and watch it on big screens at the Good Food & Wine Show so that you can max out on all the fun of enjoying some fabulous food and delicious craft beers or estate wines at the same time.
And when the game’s not taking their full attention, here’s a rundown of some other exciting spectacles:

flavours. Again, seating is limited so early booking is encouraged.
