The Pumas turned back the clock 34 years, when they defeated Western Province 22-12 in a Currie Cup game, in the Mbombela stadium on Friday night.
The Pumas, then names South Eastern Transvaal, scored their most famous win against a star-studded WP in a Lion Cup fixture back in 1983.
The Pumas added the Western Province scalp to that of the Lions and the Blue Bulls on their home turf with the spirited display which gave their Currie Cup hopes a massive boost.
Their little general Stefan Ungerer gave another sterling display at scrumhalf in the pink jersey and he must now be one of the top number nines in the country.
The Pumas’ shopping spree must be complimented with players like Ungerer, Tembelani Bholi, Stefan Willemse, Pieter Scholtz and Gerrit Smith turning their season around.

Die Pumas het die horlosie 34 jaar teruggedraai toe hulle die WP Vrydagaand in die Mbombela-stadion 22-12 in ‘n Curriebeker-wedstryd verslaan het.
Die Pumas, wat destyds bekend gestaan het as Suidoos-Transvaal, het hulle mees bekendste oorwinning teen ‘n sterbelaaide WP-span in ‘n Lion-beker wedstryd in 1983 behaal.
Die Pumas het die WP se kop by die van die Leeus en die Blou Bulle gevoeg met een van hul blinkste vertonings vanjaar om hul Curriebeker-hoop ‘n groot hupstoot te gee.
Hul klein general Stefan Ungerer het nog ‘n blink vertoning op skrumskakel in die pienk trui gelewer en hy moet nou een van die vooste nommer neges in die land wees.
Die Pumas se aankope moet gekomplilmenteer word met spelers soos Ungerer, Tembelani Bholi, Stefan Willemse, Pieter Scholtz en Gerrit Smith wat gehelp het om hul seisoen om te draai.
