Griquas name weakened team

Griquas coach Dawie Theron has been forced to name a weakened team to face the Sharks in Durban on Friday night, as a result of injury. Lock Frikkie Spies and centre Matt Rosslee are just the latest in a growing list of casualties for the Kimberley team.

To add insult to injury (or is that injury to insult?), prop Jacobie Adriaanse, an off-season acquisition from Boland, injured his elbow against the Buuls last week and will at best play off the bench, with Jean Botha getting the nod at tight-head. Michael Passaportis comes into the second row for Spies, with Barry Geel taking over at inside centre from Rosslee.

The irony is that as early as next week, Theron is expected to have a host of Sharks players to call on, including loose forward Justin Downey and Luvuyiso Lusaseni, as well as a promising centre (who I can’t name right now). The Durbanites have agreed to send a number of their fringe players down to Kimberley to help out for the remainder of the season, but are obviously not keen on doing that until after Friday night’s game.

Griquas: 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Richard Lawson, 13 Wilmaure Louw, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Naas Olivier (captain), 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Burger Schoeman, 7 Rohan Kitshoff, 6 Davon Raubenheimer, 5 Cecil-John Kemp, 4 Michael Passaportis, 3 Jean Botha, 2 Ryno Barnes, 1 Steph Roberts.
Replacements: 16 Simon Westraadt, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse/Ivann Espag, 18 Johan van Deventer, 19 Gerhard Human, 20 Marnus Hugo, 21 Rocco Jansen, 22 Rudi Vogt.

  • @Original Log Leader (Comment 1) : it’s tough on the players, cos they are just super-keen to get out there and play.

    I see the point, though.

  • Is there a rule about loaned players not being able to play against the team they are contracted to?

    Wise choice from the Sharks management, we wouldn’t want it to come back and bite us in the bum. We don’t tend to play our good games against the teams we should easily beat.

  • Happens to Griquas every single year…

    Luckily the return leg is at home for both WP and Sharks and at least WP beat them in the away leg.

  • @Ice (Comment 8) : I already wrote a stinging email to supersport in this regard. I suggest all of you do the same.
    Maybe if they get the same complaint 100 times they`d think twice . . . :twisted:

  • @Original Log Leader (Comment 10) : I believe they are showing the womans world cup which would have even fewer viewers than the Sharks vs Griquas game.

    They can afford to air Top 14 and ITM Cup games but not all the Currie Cup games. Admittedly I wouldn’t really watch say Leopards vs Pumas but it would be nice to have the option.
