Star loose forward Duane Vermeulen, who recently excelled for the Emerging Springboks against the touring British & Irish Lions, has not been included in the Western Province Currie Cup side to play the Sharks at Newlands on Saturday afternoon.

Sport24 reports that Vermeulen was one of the few players to have performed consistently well during the past Super 14, but he is battling with a hand injury which he sustained in the match against the Lions at Newlands a fortnight ago.

An interesting inclusion in the WP side is the seasoned All Black Chris Jack, who will lock the side’s scrum alongside Anton van Zyl, the former Lions lock.

Former Bulls three-quarter Frikkie Welsh, who has spent several seasons in Europe, makes a welcome return to the domestic game and has been picked on the wing in the WP side.

In a strange development WP have named two hookers, Hanyani Shimange and Deon, Fourie on the bench.

WP: Joe Pietersen; Frikkie Welsh, Morgan Newman, Peter Grant, Sireli Naqelevuki; Willem de Waal, Ricky Januarie; Luke Watson (captain), Pieter Myburgh, Pieter Louw, Anton van Zyl, Chris Jack, Brock Harris, Tiaan Liebenberg and Wicus Blaauw. Replacements: Hanyani Shimange, JD Moller, De Kock Steenkamp, Deon Fourie, Dewaldt Duvenage, Juan de Jongh and Tonderai Chavhanga.

  • Kockott v Januarie should be a great tussle.

    I hae my doubts whether Kockott’e legs are long enough to step around the Supersize Januarie though.

    (Maybe there is actually method behind januarie being so large now)

    Rassie said: Ricky you must cover more ground.
    And Januarie thought Rassie was refering to Rickie’s shadow.

    I didn’t know it either but he suddenly appeared in a DVD I have called “big hits” or something like that hosted by James Dalton. (Hits as in punches and not tackles)

  • @robdylan (Comment 11) :

    Nope. It was an u/21 game, in the fight he was on the field in his Number 1′s helping John Smit who was being clubbed. (So he was part of the team but not the 22 man squad)

    Coming onto the field to get involved in a fight when you aren’t even in the Match 22 is typical bulls behavior though :wink:
