The Free State Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské and Griquas fullback Rudi Vogt received the Currie Cup Coach and Player of the Month awards for October.
The Free State Cheetahs did not lose a single match in the second round of the Currie Cup, and as in previous years, Drotské managed to coach his team to the knock-out phase of the competition, where they came up short against the Sharks last weekend.
With regards to Player of the Month, Griquas points machine Vogt received the majority of the votes.
The panel, consisting of all eight Currie Cup Premier Division coaches, felt he played a major part in Griquas' victory over the Blue Bulls in Kimberly, effectively knocking the 2009 champions out of the competition.
Vogt finished the league phase of the season in third place on the list of total points' scorers on 144 points.
Other players such as Elton Jantjies (Golden Lions), Ashley Johnson (FS Cheetahs), Jaco Bouwer (Pumas) and coaches Abré Minnie (Griquas) and John Plumtree (the Sharks) were also nominated for their fantastic performances in October.
The Currie Cup Coach of the Month competition is designed to acknowledge and reward coaches for their outstanding leadership.
Players, who are consistent and significantly contribute to the overall performance of the team, come into the reckoning for the Player of the Month award.
A media panel, consisting of respected journalists and commentators, were unanimous in their choice of Drotské as the coach of the month of October.
