Three return for Province

There’s some good news in the Western Province camp, as three players return from injury this week. Bolla Conradie, Hilton Lobberts and Francois Louw will all come into the selection frame for this weekend’s game against the Cheetahs at Newlands.

The news is less good for Brian Mujati, Adriaan Fondse and Duanne Vermeulen, who all look set to be out for a while still. This is in addition to a pair of promising youngster unlikely to feature at all this season, Nick Koster and prop JC Kritzinger.

Coach Allister Coetzee must surely consider a number of changes to his 22 this week, with Lobberts and Flo a good bet to come onto the bench in place of De Kock Steenkamp and Shimmie Shimange respectively. Deon Fourie could then move into the number 16 jersey to cover hooker, rather than being pressed into service as a makeshift loose-forward reserve.

Conradie for Conrad Hoffman is another possibility, although the real priority for the Province coaching staff at this stage must surely be to find a competent replacement for the Fijian Flop, Sireli Naqelevuki. The fat, lazy retreaded prop cost his side at least two clear tries against the Bulls and it’s high time that Tonderai Chavanga, or virtually anyone else, was given a run in his place.

  • And to be honest, I don’t know if I’d mess with the loosie combo at the mo, as much as I like Flo, the loosies are doing damn well.

  • @molly (Comment 4) : yes – I agree. Stick Flo on the bench, if you must. I don’t really rate him all that highly. Frankenstein is much better.

  • @Rahul (Comment 6) : He played a game or 2 in the S14. I still think Rassie can bring out the best in him. Would be a waste if nothing came of him.

  • @Rahul (Comment 13) : I tried to pick non-Boks that will also not loose their places once the Boks return and then trade the Boks back in….that why I want to know how long Vermeulen will be out for.

  • Eish – anyone catch that peice in the times about Chris Jack? Typical Province – they say it was an inspired choice turns out he is just fulfilling a contract obligation to Saracens.

    Eish our administrators leave a lot to be desired

    I’m still hurting that KSA is ahead of me and he picked a team in 3 minutes! AND that was after I convinced Rob to reopen the game status before kick off. :sad: :mad: :evil:

    :?: How does he fulfill an obligation to Saracens by playing for Province? One of the commentators on TV said that he wasnt here for the full CC.

    In view of the above, even more reason to admire his efforts so far for Province.

  • @rekinek (Comment 31) :

    I actually got all the facts right – but I literally did my test like this:
    - Jan van Riebeeck kom in die Kaap
    -Jan trou met Maria
    -Hulle het drie kids

    So the guy sid I did not show ‘Insight” and for that he is gonna give me 0..- FFS – I mean WTF?? He was later fired if I remember correctly…he did have several screws lose…

    @Rahul (Comment 33) :

    Assumption still correct.. :wink:

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 32) : Sarecens and WP are linked by their parent company SAIL – so the exchange of players is an option – i cannot recall why he wasn’t playing for Saires anymore – might have been a dispute – so he has a contract until Sept to fulfil – so he got sent ot WP to meet his obligation.

    None the less, it still works for me !
