The South African Rugby Board was founded in 1889 with a twofold task - to standardise the laws within South Africa and to establish a provincial competition for South Africa.

The first competition was in 1890. The trophy was presented by the SA Rugby Board and Western Province were the winners. Then came the British in 1891 with the Currie Cup. The first time it was in provincial competition was in 1892.

Before 1939 and in 1957-59, 1964 and 1966 the Currie Cup was decided at a tournament or by way of logs. In 1939 there was a final, as there has been every year since 1968.
