The 1991 Currie Cup Rural D was the fifth division of the Currie Cup competition, the premier domestic rugby union competition in South Africa. This was the 53rd season since the competition started in 1889.
The 1990 season was the last edition of the Santam Bank Trophy. Instead, these teams were included in a Currie Cup Rural Division, which had a four-team Division C and a five-team Division D.
Lowveld, North Western Cape, South African Rugby Association, South Western Districts and Winelands moved to the 1991 Currie Cup Rural D.
Following the merger of all rugby governing bodies in South Africa, South African Rugby Association and Winelands were dissolved. Currie Cup Rural D was reduced to three teams for 1992.
The Currie Cup Rural D was renamed Currie Cup Rural B for 1992.
