A mouth-watering clash awaits in Kimberley this afternoon.

The table-topping Griquas will want to extend their miraculous unbeaten run to six games, in the process claiming their fourth “big five” scalp. They held on grittily to deny Province last week, but will be tested by a Bulls side strengthened by the return of several stars.

Will the men in peacock blue defy the odds and consign the Bulls to their third away defeat of the season?

Or will the return of players such as Dewald Potgieter, Chilliboy Rallepele and Zane Kirchner make the Bulls too strong to lose to the likes of Griquas?

Kick-off is at 15h00 SA Time.

Griquas: 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Egon Seconds, 13 Jaco Bekker, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Jonathan Mokuena (captain), 7 Davon Raubenheimer, 6 Rohan Kitshoff, 5 Jacques Lombard, 4 Nolan Clark, 3 Ruaan du Preez, 2 Simon Westraadt, 1 Steph Roberts.
Replacements: 16 Andries Kruger/Rayno Barnes, 17 Albertus Buckle/Zane Killian, 18 Brendon Snyman/Heinrich Stride, 19 Sean Plaatjies, 20 Dougie Helmuth, 21 Trompie Nontshinga, 22 Gavin Passens.

Blue Bulls: 15 Tiger Mangweni; 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Marius Delport; 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Francois Hougaard; 8 Dewald Potgieter, 7 Jacques Burger, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (captain), 1 Gurthrö Steenkamp.
Replacements: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Fudge Mabeta, 19 Pedrie Wannenburg, 20 Ruan Snyman, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Zane Kirchner.

Referee: Willie Roos
Assistant referees: Matt Kemp, Marc van Zyl

  • @JarsonX (Insomniac) (Comment 20) : Not good for the Sharks. The Kwasse beating all the big sides is good for us cos it will keep us second. When all the Boks are back then we drill them.
