The 2019 Currie Cup final will be contested between the Free State Cheetahs and the Golden Lions following their wins on Saturday.

The first semi-final saw the Lions host the Griquas in Johannesburg, with the visitors looking to make their first final since 1970. Unfortunately, there was no fairytale ending for the Griquas.

The Lions were too accurate for the men from Kimberly, running out 34-19 winners to book their place in next week's final.
