The White and Black are at Newlands this afternoon for the first serious test of their Vodacom Cup campaign.Sean Everitt has been forced into a change at flyhalf, with Monty Dumond out injured. Barring a rotational change in the loose forwards, the team looks settled and will look to build on a promising first outing against Border last week.
Province, on the other hand, suffered a disappointing loss to neighbours Boland. Their team, featuring a good few players with Super 14 experience in the backline, is far better than last week’s performance would suggest and they’ll be keen to put in a good performance in front of their home crowd.
Kick-off at Newlands is at 3pm.
