WP Call on three of their Boks

Western Province have called up three of the four returning Springboks for Saturday’s pressure Absa Currie Cup rugby derby clash against neighbours Boland Kavaliers at Newlands.

Superrugby reports that Scrumhalf Bolla Conradie, hooker Schalk Brits and prop Brian Mujati, were all named in the WP side which coach Allister Coetzee admitted were under enormous pressure after shock defeats at the hands of minnow sides Griquas and Falcons in recent weeks.

The pressure has seemingly also caused Coetzee to be undecided about who will be his flyhalf on Saturday and he has named both Willem de Waal and returning Springbok Peter Grant in his starting lineup.

Coetzee will make his final decision on the flyhalf berth known on the day of the match.

Earlier on Wednesday, WP decided to close their morning training session to the media out of fear that some of Coetzee’s plans will be made known to Boland, their Super 14 partners.

“Boland is part of our Stormers franchise, so they are familiar with many of our calls,” said Coetzee. “We’ve had to change a few things and I just want it to be kept secret at this stage.”

The WP team: Gio Aplon; Wylie Human, Dylan des Fountain, Gcobani Bobo (captain), Joe Pietersen; Willem de Waal/Peter Grant, Bolla Conradie; Justin Melck , AJ Venter, Francois Louw, Ross Skeate, Adriaan Fondse, Brian Mujati, Schalk Brits and Wicus Blaauw.
Replacements: Deon Fourie, Schalk Ferreira, Brok Harris, Nick Koster, Dewaldt Duvenhage, Peter Grant/Willem de Waal and Morgan Newman.

  • By my reckoning they have recalled all(4)of their released Boks or am I misunderstanding the article?
    When I initially didnt see Peter Grants name I was quiete happy – I was hoping that he was left out so that he could throw his toys and log a call to his agent to get his transfer to the Sharks sorted out.

    I think it is because the 4th one is still a maybe. but nowadays it is very seldom that the whole bench doesn’t get used so you are right in a sense.

    Watch how quickly that changes when he warms the bench ala Dollie, not even getting a run as a replacement in 4 games. :twisted:
