The teams for the crunch Vodacom match between the Lions and Western Province at Ellis Park this weekend have been announced.

Isma-eel Dollie and Francois van der Merwe have both been released by the Stormers selectors for the Crusaders game, and therefore start for the WP side. WP have a formidable look about them, fresh after their 51-7 defeat of the Griffons last weekend and with Wylie Human, Justin Melck, David Hendricks, Francois van der Merwe and captain Hanyani Shimange all having Super 14 experience.

The Lions lost 36-42 to the Cheetahs in their first game, and have made several changes to that line-up. The most notable changes are experienced flanker Roland Bernard dropping out through injury, former EP pivot Michael Killian dropping to the bench with Arno Coetzee taking over the 10 jumper, Alten Hulme starting at lock in place of Willem Scholtz, and Walter Venter replacing the highly regarded Thabang Molefe at inside centre.

The teams are:

Lions: Pagina de Klerk; Wigan Pekeur, Justin St. Jerry, Walter Venter, Trekker van Tonder; Arno Coetzee, Straatkat van Zyl; RW Kember, Francois Uys, Wilhem Koch ©, Varkhond Grobler, Alten Hulme, Eugene Maqwelana, Gavin Williamson, Clint van Niekerk. Reserwes: Torrie Meyer, Gert Muller, Dewald Senekal, Biscuit van Deventer, Jody Rose, Michael Killian. Thabang Molefe

WP: Wylie Human; Terry Jacobs, PJ Vermeulen, Morgan Newman, Zhahier Ryland; Isma-eel Dollie, Alastair Siegelaar; Justin Melck, David Hendricks, Conraad Britz, Rito Hlungwani, Francois van der Merwe, Ruaan du Preez, Hanyani Shimange ©, JC Kritzinger. Reserwes: Deon Fourie, WP Nel, George Earle, Tyrone Holmes, Charlie King, Dabeon Draghoender, Richard Lawson

  • Quite a impressive WP team. Jacobs, Vermeulen, Newman, Kakkerlakkie, Dollie & Siegelaar quite a backline.

  • You see I even paid WP a compliment:
    “WP have a formidable look about them”
    :mrgreen:

    Terry Jacobs scored a hat-trick last weekend…

    What’s happened to that Titus chap who played ARL?

  • Well lets just see how Dollie goes.

    We’re all chorusing for him to get gametime so now he has it.

    Ball is in his hands now.

  • lmao – there are indeed some fantastic names in the Lions squad, only Isma-eel (Bladen has to say it slowly) is a banana skin in the WP team…the commentary on this game would be fantastic to listen to :)

    thanks for the info on Titus, PB

  • Three years back, Monnas had a fantastic schoolboy team, ending unbeaten in SA. Think there is a few of them in the Valie team trying to break through to the big time. Should be a good match.

    Tobie is coloured and from the Cape. Luke is a pakeha from Aus.

  • oh? So maybe there is more to this. I’m also really assuming that Luke Titus is a whitey cos I thought he was a native Ossie (is there such a thing?)

  • rob
    Luke Titus’ parents left during the 80′s. They are from the Cape Flats.

    They might be related to Oom Tobie.

    How did Rassie find this guy? He was playing Aussie League in the lower divisions in AUS.

  • yeah can’t find any info on him playing ARU, so I guess it must have been lower leagues as wes says… I’m also grasping straws & guessing that he IS related to Tobie Titus, hence his signing on the basis of zippo union experience. Yes I know he’s supposed to be talented. BUT doesn’t the eau de nepotism flow through the corridors of most SA rugby unions ;) ?

  • Rassie actually did not find him, he wants to come back to his roots and the land of milk and honey, that is Slaapstad.

  • howsit guys, i’m new here but use to hang out on the other sites a while back, why dont they just give Dollie a chance at S14, he has faster distribution than Grant and has bulked up for defence, o well so it goes in SA rugby
