The second game of the weekend, the second in a bumper Friday night in Currie Cup, sees Western Province tackle the Lions at Newlands, a game that should be a very close encounter indeed.

Western Province has lost Nick Koster in a late change, with Nick Fenton-Wells starting in a shuffled loose trio. Province will be hoping the Bulls can pick up a win at Loftus so that they have the opportunity of taking third spot on the log.

The Lions on the other hand, have a healthy 4 point gap at the top of the log and are still unbeaten this season, and have looked at their best with young Elton Jantjies back at pivot. They have had their fair share of injury troubles, especially in the centres where they have resorted to winger Mapoe to play in the 13 jersey.

Kick-off is at 19h00, and I fancy a strong Western Province showing will dethrone the Lions at the top of the log.

Western Province: 15. Conrad Jantjes, 14. Danie Poolman, 13. Johann Sadie, 12. Tim Whitehead, 11. JJ Engelbrecht, 10. Demetri Catrakilis, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Pieter Louw, 7. Siya Kolisi, 6. Nick Fenton-Wells, 5. De Kock Steenkamp, 4. Hilton Lobberts, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Deon Fourie (Capt) , 1. Steven Kitshoff

Replacements: 16. Tiaan Liebenberg, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. Quinn Roux, 19. Nizaam Carr, 20. Nic Groom, 21. Juan De Jongh, 22. Gio Aplon

Lions: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Michael Killian, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Joshua Strauss (capt), 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Wikus van Heerden, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.

Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse, 18 Michael Rhodes, 19 Warren Whiteley, 20 Rudy Paige, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Jannie Boshoff.

  • Great field from the kick off from Engelbrecht…
    Great kick from the scrummy and Engelbrecht driving van rensburg over the Lions tryline for a 5 meter scrum…
    Solid scrum by WP…passing down the backline…Mapoe intercept, step and runs 90 meters to score…almost diving over the dead ball line in the show off…

  • WP juniors made far too many mistakes and gifted the Lions at least one try.

    Lions gave it their all, but WP juniors still come away victorious. Well done. :mrgreen:
