A local man has just won big and converted his home into a Currie Cup museum.
Meet Tim Jenkins, a lifelong rugby fan and proud Durbanite. So when he won big on a sports betting site, he knew exactly what he wanted to do with the money – create a Currie Cup museum in his own home!
Tim’s home, which was once a humble abode, has now been transformed into a rugby lover’s dream. The living room is now filled with memorabilia from the Sharks, including signed jerseys, rugby balls, and even the iconic Currie Cup trophy itself.
The kitchen has been turned into a replica of a rugby stadium, complete with stadium seating and a giant screen to watch rugby matches. And the bedrooms? Well, they’ve been converted into mini-halls of fame, showcasing the greatest moments in Sharks and South African rugby history.
But it’s not just the interior that’s been transformed. Tim has also painted his home in Sharks’ colors, with the logo proudly displayed on the front door. And he’s even installed a giant scoreboard on the roof, which can be seen from blocks away.
Of course, not everyone is thrilled about Tim’s new museum. Some of his neighbors have complained about the noise and the constant stream of rugby fans coming to visit. But Tim is unfazed. He’s proud of his museum and believes that it will become a must-see attraction for rugby fans around the world.
And the best part? Tim is already planning to expand his museum. He’s reached out to former Sharks players and coaches to donate their memorabilia, and he’s even considering opening up his home as a B&B for rugby fans.
So if you’re a rugby lover looking for a unique place to stay in Durban, be sure to check out Tim’s Currie Cup museum. And who knows, you might even get a chance to meet some of the Sharks legends who’ve already stopped by to check out the collection.
