Western Province are not doing any Springbok rugby any favours by not fielding Ricky Januarie and Andries Bekker in their side to play Boland in Wellington on Saturday.

Sapa/www.iol.co.za

Scrumhalf Ricky Januarie and lock Andries Bekker were made available by the Springboks and could both have added great value to the Province side which failed so dismally in Kimberley last weekend.

Adriaan Fondse returns to the starting line-up at the expense of Anton van Zyl in the side to play the Wellington derby against Boland on Saturday.

On paper, Province are fielding a side capable of burying Boland in the Wellington swamps, but after defeats there in recent years the ‘Streeptruie’ will be treading lightly, more so as the current side’s limitations were so cruelly exposed in Kimberley.

WP: Joe Pietersen; Tonderai Chavhanga, Juan De Jongh, Morgan Newman, Gio Aplon; Peter Grant, Dewaldt Duvenage; Luke Watson (capt), Duane Vermeulen, Francois Louw, Adriaan Fondse, Chris Jack, Brok Harris, Tiaan Liebenberg, Wicus Blaauw. Replacements – Deon Fourie, JD Moller, Anton Van Zyl, Pieter Louw, Bolla Conradie, Paul Bosch, JJ Engelbrecht

  • On a completely serious note, it would have been good for bekker to play, he needs game time, on that note I was disappointed that chilliboy is not starting for the bulls, is kuun still captain?

  • This is the first I’ve heard about Bekker being available. Are some writers being selective in their reporting again?

  • @McLovin (Comment 19) : I suppose it depends on what you want from your lock…..do you want someone that can take lineout ball: Bekker +1 . Do you want a physical player: Bekker -2. Do you need an extra centre of wing: Bekker +2. Do you need a extra loosie around rucks and mauls:Bekker -2
