WP Coach Alister Coetzee is taking no chances in this weekends game against the Leopards.
WP started this seasons Currie Cup like a house on fire winning all their games bar the match against the Sharks, a result which set them on a path of 3 losses.After last weeks loss to a resurgent Lions team Coetzee stated there was no need to panic and that WP would get their campaign back on track.
Coetzee wasted no time in using his available Springboks and has added Gio Aplon, Jean de Villers, Juan De Jong and Francois Louw into his starting lineup.This game will be De Villiers first in the Blue and White hoops since returning from a stint in Ireland.
Naming a full strength team against the Leopards who languish at the bottom of the Currie Cup pile may seem like overkill but Coetzee would most likely prefer having team moral back up of a string of losses.
