Here we go, guys. All the Currie Cup round 3 team announcements summarised in one place, just in case you might need the information!

We’ve covered the Sharks, of course. The highlights here are Dumond in at flyhalf, while Rhodes and Olivier come onto the bench. Nikolai Blignaut and Guy Cronjé are both out this week.

Sharks – 15. Stefan Terblanche (capt), 14. Odwa Ndungane, 13. Andries Strauss, 12. Riaan Swanepoel, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Monty Dumond, 9. Rory Kockott, 8. Keegan Daniel, 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Jacques Botes, 5. Albert van den Berg, 4. Steven Sykes, 3. Patric Cilliers, 2. Craig Burden, 1. Deon Carstens
Subs: 16. Skipper Badenhorst, 17. Wiehahn Herbst, 18. Michael Rhodes, 19. Justin Downey, 20. Ross Cronje, 21. Len Olivier, 22. Luzuko Vulindlu

The Bulls have also kept the changes to a minimum, with young Stefan Watermeyer coming in at inside centre for Wynand Olivier, who’s with the Boks. A further change on the bench sees Marnitz Boshoff in for young JC Roos.

Bulls – 15 Tiger Mangewni, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Heini Adams, 8 Dries van Schalkwyk, 7 Dewald Potgieter, 6 Jacques Burger, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (capt), 1 Gurtrhö Steenkamp.
Subs: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Jaco Engels, 19 Fudge Mabeta, 20 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 21 Marius Delport, 22 Marnitz Boshoff.

Western Province have made a fair few change to their side, with Francois Louw coming into the pack at the expense of Pieter Myburgh and Juan de Jongh and Tondie Chavanga replacing Morgan Newman and Frikkie Welsh respectively in the back line. Hanyani Shimange is out altogether this week, with Deon Fourie moving back into the number 16 jersey, having been in 19 for the last two rounds.

WP – 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Tonderai Chavhanga, 13 Juan De Jongh, 12 Peter Grant, 11 Sireli Naqelevuki, 10 Willem De Waal, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Luke Watson (capt), 7 Pieter Louw, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Anton Van Zyl, 4 Chris Jack, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Subs: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 JD Moller, 18 Hilton Lobberts, 19 Pieter Myburgh, 20 Conrad Hoffmann, 21 Morgan Newman, 22 Frikkie Welsh.

The Cheetahs have once again dumped Bok winger Jongi Nokwe and his place on the left wing goes to young speedster Lionel Mapoe. In the only other change to the 22, former Bulls scrumhalf JP Joubert is named on the bench in place of Gerrie Odendaal, who has been sent off into the wilderness to play for the Griffons this week.

Cheetahs – 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Danwel Demas, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Corné Uys, 11 Lionel Mapoe, 10 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 9 Tertius Carse, 8 Francois Uys, 7 Hendro Scholtz (capt), 6 Johan Wessels, 5 David de Villiers, 4 Nico Breedt, 3 WP Nel, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez.
Subs: 16 Richardt Strauss, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Frans Viljoen, 19 Kabamba Floors, 20 JP Joubert, 21 Louis Strydom, 22 JW Jonker.

Boland have made some sweeping changes to their team for Saturday’s match against Griquas, with regular captain Conrad Burke joining openside flanker Zolani Mofu on the bench after some average performances. Centre Dewey Swartbooi takes over as captain, while former Lions and Sharks utility back Mark Harris replaces Justin Peach at fullback.

Boland Kavaliers – 15 Mark Harris, 14 Deon Scholtz, 13 Cornal Hendricks, 12 Dewey Swartbooi (capt), 11 Alvin Hugo, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Carel Hoffman, 7 Wendall Wehr, 6 Angelo Brinkhuys, 5 Rito Hlungwane. 4 Grant le Roux, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Clemen Lewis, 1 Janro Van Niekerk
Subs: 16 Conrad Burke, 17 Jane du Toit, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 Nico Esterhuyse, 20 Zolani Mofu, 21 Hein Myburgh, 22 Justin Peach

Griquas have a pretty settled-looking side. Watch out for yet another Sharks XV player, Nolan Clark, in the number 18 jersey.

Griquas – 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Dewald Pretorius, 13 Wilmaure Louw, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Jonathan Mokuena (capt), 7 Davon Raubenheimer, 6 Rohan Kitchoff, 5 Jacques Lombaard, 4 Brendon Snyman, 3 Ruaan du Preez, 2 Ryno Barnes, 1 Albertus Buckle.
Replacements: 16 Simon Westraadt, 17 Steph Roberts, 18 Nolan Clarke, 19 Sean Plaatjies, 20 Dougie Hellmuth, 21 Hanno Coetzee, 22 Gavin Passens.

The Leopards have named a side featuring a fair few players to have represented their opponents, the Lions, at some level of the game. 8 of the 22 have donned the red and white at some stage in their careers. The big news is the return of star lock Rudi Mathee from injury. A further four players in the 22 have been involved with the Sharks at some stage.

Leopards – 15 Jean Tiedt, 14 Jovan Bowles, 13 Deon van Rensburg, 12 Japie Nel, 11 Jan van Zyl, 10 Clayton Durand, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 RW Kember, 7 Bennie Adams, 6 Wilhelm Koch (capt), 5 Anthonie Gronum, 4 Rynard Landman, 3 Philip Lemmer, 2 Gavin Williamson, 1 Nardus Lombard.
Replacements: 16 Pellow van der Westhuizen, 17 Os van der Walt, 18 Rudi Mathee, 19 Christo van Niekerk, 20 Berndt Theissinger, 21 Muhammed Samaai, 22 Danie Dames.

The Lions have made sweeping changes, with big Willem Alberts set to captain the side from number 8 as regular skipper Baywatch Grobbelaar is rested. Earl Rose will be at flyhalf this week, with former Sharks lock Joe Snyman starting his first game for the Lions. Another former Sharks second rower, Wouter Moore, will be on the bench, having failed to crack the senior squad in Pretoria, where he’s been for the past 3 seasons. American skipper Todd Clever has returned from international duty and will play off the bench.

Lions – 15 Alwyn Hollenbach, 14 Dusty Noble, 13 Rouan Cloete, 12 Walter Venter, 11 Henno Mentz, 10 Earl Rose, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem Alberts (capt), 7 Franco van der Merwe, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Willem Stoltz, 4 Johan Snyman, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Hans van Dyk, 1 Wayne Swart.
Subs: 16 Torrie Meyer, 17 Ross Geldenhuys, 18 Wouter Moore, 19 Todd Clever, 20 Chris Jonck, 21 Herkie Kruger, 22 Johan Jackson.
