Western Province have claimed both Currie Cup awards for September.

Coach Allister Coetzee and hooker Siyabonga 'Scarra' Ntubeni were named as the respective Currie Cup Coach and Player of the Month for September.

Coetzee's team has been the epitome of consistency and he has led his side to an unbeaten run after nine rounds and keeping them focused on defending their Currie Cup title.

Golden Lions coach Johan Ackermann was in a close second place behind Coetzee with his side featuring among the front-runners in the competition.

Ntubeni has been one of the standout players this season with his relentless work ethic making him an important part in the Western Province machinery. The 22-year-old hooker is growing in stature and is continuing to make an impression in the competition.

Golden Lions flank Jaco Kriel and utility back Marnitz Boshoff were tied for second place. It is the second time Boshoff has been nominated for Currie Cup Player of the Month award, while Kriel has increasingly caught the eye in the competition making valuable contributions for the Lions.
