The 2014 Currie Cup qualification was a tournament organised by the South African Rugby Union. It featured seven teams and was played in June and July 2014, with the winner qualifying for the 2014 Currie Cup Premier Division. The remaining six teams played in the 2014 Currie Cup First Division.

Competition[edit]

On 13 February 2014, SARU announced that the Currie Cup Premier Division would be expanded from six to eight teams. The top five teams from 2013 – the Sharks, Western Province, Free State Cheetahs, Golden Lions and Blue Bulls – were guaranteed participation in the 2014 edition, as were the top two teams from the 2013 Currie Cup First Division, the Pumas and Eastern Province Kings.

The bottom side in 2013, the Griquas, as well as the remaining teams from the First Division – the Leopards, SWD Eagles, Boland Cavaliers, Griffons, Border Bulldogs and Falcons – played in a qualification tournament, with the winner also qualifying to the 2014 Currie Cup Premier Division.[1]

The seven teams played each other once over the course of the qualification tournament, either at home or away. Teams received four points for a win and two points for a draw. Bonus points were awarded to teams that scored 4 or more tries in a game, as well as to teams that lost a match by 7 points or less. Teams were ranked by log points, then points difference (points scored less points conceded).

The top team qualified for the 2014 Currie Cup Premier Division, while the other six teams qualified for the 2014 Currie Cup First Division.
