DHL Western Province coach has named his squad that will travel to Profert Olen Park  Potchefstroom to face the Leopards on Friday night.

Western Provinces flyhalf curse seems to be fit as a fiddle as young Gary van Aswegen was ruled out for 8 weeks with yet another knee injury, the pivot was last week praised for playing some creative rugga, stepping and jinking long last seen in a hooped jumper. His injury opens the door for young Ikey flyhalf Dimitri  Catrakilis to get a starting berth while Isma-eel Dollie warms the bench.

The pack remains relatively unchanged with only Rohan Kitshoff getting a start ahead of Wimpie vd Walt who drops out of the 22. Nick Fenton-Wells, another Ikey(their captain) also gets a well deserved callup on the back of consistent Varsity Cup form.

Louis Schroeder falls to the bench for the experienced Dewaldt Duvenage who has returned from an ankle injury, Duvenage is also the teams vice captain.

Coetzees squad looks to tie in with what he has been preaching about developing the WP youngsters, after last weeks draw against Griquas he stated that he had handed out 8 ties after the fixture, the ties being handed out to players making their first Currie Cup appearance.

The DHL Western Province team is :

Team: Jantjes, Poolman, Sadie, Whitehead, Engelbrecht, Catrakilis, Duvenage, Koster, Kolisi, R Kitshoff, Steenkamp, Lobberts, Harris, Fourie (C) , Blaauw

Reserves: Liebenberg, Malherbe, Fondse, Nic Fenton-Wells, Schreuder, Dollie, Brache

  • Fenton-Wells? Is he mates with Dawson-Squibb? :)

    What about Caruthers-Whetherbottom and Furley-Blunderson?

  • Really wish they had dropped Brok. He needs to be taught his priorities again.

  • @robdylan (Comment 7) : Malherbe/Kitschoff, I don’t know which one usually plays which side. Even JD Moller would be acceptable. I’m that desperate for Brok to learn that centre and flyhalf are NOT positions he should be standing in.

  • @molly (Comment 8) : poor boy isn’t a very good prop, is he?

    Something funny going on with him,though, because for just 3-4 weeks during the Super 15 he actually started to look like something. I’m afraid he regressed at an alarming rate, though.

    Can’t wait to see Chadwick have him for breakfast!

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : Yeah, for a while I liked him too, but then the big games come and he just reminds us that maybe we still have the “light 5″ label firmly attached.

  • @molly (Comment 10) : you have a better forwards coach now, at least, but a great workman can also only do so much with substandard materials…

    Schreuder wasn’t too bad. And Groom kept on kicking away possession when we needed to hold onto the ball.

    Ek mis vir Ricky! :shock:

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : agree Rob. At one point in the Super 15 I was starting to think that he was a lot better than I had previously given him credit for. Suddenly thought we had a decent tighthead around. Now though, he’s got the rollerskates on. Strange one
