Can you believe that we’re already at the end of the league phase of the 2009 Currie Cup? Like the best-scripted of movies, we won’t know the semifinal lineup until the conclusion of this game.No team has yet managed to leave Coca Cola Park with a four-try bonus point, yet that’s exactly what Western Province will need to do to ensure that they can’t be overtaken at the op of the log (unless, of course, the Sharks managed to beat Griquas by 100 points, which is unlikely). Should they fail in their quest, assuming the Sharks succeeded in scoring a bonus point, then Province don’t really even need to win the game, since they’ll end second in any case.

For the Lions, it’s all about pride and after doing a lot of talking during the week, I guess we’ll see exactly how much this game really means to them, since their own semi-final ambitions were ended last week.

Kick-off is at 17h05

Golden Lions: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Dusty Noble, 13 Jannie Boshoff, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Johan Jackson, 10 Herkie Kruger, 9 Chris Jonck, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Nico Luus, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Hans van Dyk, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: 16 Torrie Meyer, 17 Wayne Swart, 18 Willem Stoltz, 19 Todd Clever, 20 Ruan Boshoff, 21 Walter Venter, 22 Michael Killian.

Western Province: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Tonderai Chavhanga, 13 Frikkie Welsh, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Sireli Naqelevuki, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Ricky Januarie, 8 Luke Watson (captain), 7 Duane Vermeulen, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Anton van Zyl, 3 JC Kritzinger, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw.
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 JD Moller, 18 De Kock Steenkamp, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Dewaldt Duvenage, 21 Matt Toomua, 22 Gio Aplon

Referee: Marius Jonker
Assistant referees: Ben Crouse, Madel Herselman

  • Why are they going for points? They need 4 tries. They have even less risk than the Sharks did in terms of losing. Whether than win or lose it doesn’t make a difference. They need a win + 4 tries. I’ll never understand the logic of the Bergies. :roll:
