This has to count as THE key deciding match in this year’s Currie Cup – deciding, that is, which of these woeful excuses for a Premier Division side will claim the wooden spoon.

The Leopards, having lost every game they’ve played and accumulated no points whatsoever, have one hand firmly on the ligneous ladle. Will Boland be able to snatch defeat from the jaws of, well, further defeat? They won the first round battle between these minnows – collecting their only points of the campaign in the process.

The more pertinent question, to my mind, is whether anybody will actually be watching and whether anybody actually cares. PLEASE can we get these losers out of the Currie Cup and revert to a six-team format?

Kick-off is at 19h10.

Leopards: 15 Russell Jeacocks, 14 Shuaib Samaai, 13 Jovan Bowles, 12 Basil de Doncker, 11 Danie Dames, 10 Cecil Dumont, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Christo van Niekerk, 7 Thabo Mamojele, 6 Wilhelm Koch (captain), 5 Edrich Linde, 4 Rynard Landman, 3 Philip Lemmer, 2 Marthinus van der Westhuizen, 1 Divan Kotze.
Replacements: 16 Gavin Williamson, 17 Nardus Lombard, 18 Rudi Mathee, 19 Riaan Swanepoel, 20 Theo van Wyk, 21 Clayton Durand, 21 Jean Tiedt.

Boland Cavaliers: 15 Justin Peach, 14 Deon Scholtz, 13 Cornal Hendricks, 12 Hein Myburgh, 11 Luvo Sogidashe, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Danie van der Merwe, 8 Carel Hoffman, 7 Wendal Wehr, 6 Zolani Mofu, 5 Rito Hlungwane, 4 Nico Esterhuyse, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Clemen Lewis (captain), 1 Janro van Niekerk.
Replacements: 16 Harry Vermaas, 17 Johan Roets, 18 George Earl, 19 Zandré Jordaan, 20 Denzil Willemse, 21 Ernie Kruger, 22 Llewellyn Adonis.

Referee: Jaco Peyper
Assistant referees: Ben Crouse, Mtheleni Msileni
TMO: Gerrie Coetzee
