2011 Currie Cup: Round 11 preview and predictions

With only four rounds of Currie Cup action left, things are starting to hot up for sure. The Lions will look to all but seal top spot if they can do the double over the Bulls, while there’s a real logjam further down the table with five other team still only a few points apart and scrapping furiously for the other three play-off spots.

Pumas v Leopards

The clash of the minnows is the only game this round that isn’t of any real interest in terms of the knock-out permutations, with both sides assured of finishing well outside of the top 4. It’s quite easy to call, for me. The Pumas are at home, they have their tails up after a good win against Griquas and the Leopards have plenty of injuries. Those three factors together should see the Pumas win by 10.

Pumas: 15. MJ Mentz, 14. Wilhelm Hendrik Loock, 13. JW Jonker, 12. Siviwe Magaba, 11. Johan Jackson, 10. Coenie van Wyk, 9. Shaun Venter, 8. Christo le Roux, 7. Jaco Bouwer, 6. Corne Steenkamp (Captain), 5. Marius Coetzer, 4. Willem Serfontein, 3. Brett Nel, 2. Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1. Dawie Steyn
Replacements: 16. Pellow van der Westhuizen, 17. Michael de Neuilly-Rice, 18. Eduan Van Der Walt, 19. JP Mostert, 20. Hendrik van der Nest, 21. Dewald Pretorius, 22. Carl Bezuidenhout

Leopards: 15. George Tossel, 14. Hoffman Maritz, 13. Charl Weideman, 12. Joubert Engelbrecht (Captain), 11. Jovan Bowles, 10. Wesley Dunlop, 9. Johann Laker, 8. Robert Kruger, 7. Luvuyiso Lusaseni, 6. Philip de Wet, 5. Bradley Mockford, 4. Brendon Snyman, 3. Bêrend Botha, 2. Gavin Williamson, 1. Jéan Jacques Rossouw
Replacements: 16. Marius Fourie, 17. Dewald Coetzee, 18. Juan Pretorius, 19. Dries van Schalkwyk, 20. Liam Slatem, 21. Vainon Willis, 22. Clayton Durand

Sharks v Griquas

Both sides need to win this game very badly, which should make for entertaining viewing. Having lost badly against the Cheetahs, the home side need a full house here to try and get their noses ahead of Province on the log and to keep some semblance of pressure on the Lions, who are now racing away at the top of the table. Griquas, on the other hand, will know that their loss to the Pumas has dealt an almost-fatal blow to their own semi-final hopes and that they really can’t afford to lose again. The Sharks will need to make a huge improvement in all aspect of play, lest they repeat the shocking result that saw Griquas annihilate them in Kimberley earlier in the year. I see home ground advantage and a somewhat stronger team, at least on paper, giving the Sharks a win by 8 points.

Sharks: 15. Stefan Terblanche, 14. Sibusiso Sithole, 13. Marius Joubert, 12. Meyer Bosman, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Frederic Michalak, 9. Ross Cronje, 8. Keegan Daniel (Captain), 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Jacques Botes, 5. Alistair Hargreaves, 4. Anton Bresler, 3. Eugene van Staden, 2. Kyle Cooper, 1. Dale Chadwick
Replacements: 16. Monde Hadebe, 17. Wiehahn Herbst, 18. Ross Skeate, 19. Marcell Coetzee, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Adrian Jacobs, 22. Louis Ludik

Griquas: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Dusty Noble, 13. Wilmaure Louw, 12. Matthew Rosslee, 11. Rocco Jansen, 10. Earl Rose, 9. Marnus Hugo, 8. Jonathan Mokuena (Captain), 7. Davon Raubenheimer, 6. Justin Downey, 5. Frikkie Spies, 4. Hendrik Roodt, 3. Lourens Adriaanse, 2. Ryno Barnes, 1. Ivann Espag
Replacements: 16. Simon Westraadt, 17. Steph Roberts, 18. Leon Karemaker, 19. Marnus Schoeman, 20. Hanno Coetzee, 21. Monty Dumond, 22. Rudi Vogt

Lions v Blue Bulls

This could be intriguing. The Lions won the first match between these sides at a canter, but the Bulls were better against Western Province, despite almost losing it in the second half. The smart money, though, says that this Lions team is now on too much of a role and too composed to lose a match at home to a side as limited as the Blue Bulls class of 2011. The Pretoria boys will throw everything they have into the game, but the Lions will emerge with the spoils, by about 12 points.

Lions: 15. Jaco Taute, 14. Deon van Rensburg, 13. Doppies la Grange, 12. Alwyn Hollenbach, 11. Michael Killian, 10. Elton Jantjies, 9. Michael Bondesio, 8. Joshua Strauss (Captain), 7. Derick Minnie, 6. Cobus Grobbelaar, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Michael Rhodes, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Bandise Maku, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg
Replacements: 16. Martin Bezuidenhout, 17. Jacobie Adriaanse, 18. David Bulbring, 19. Warren Whiteley, 20. Rudy Paige, 21. Burton Francis, 22. James Kamana

Bulls: Zane Kirchner, Born Basson, Wynand Olivier, Francois Venter, Gerhard van den Heever, Louis Fouché/Francois Brummer, Jano Vermaak, CJ Stander, Jacques Potgieter, Dewald Potgieter, Juandré Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Werner Kruger, Gary Botha (captain), Dean Greyling.
Replacements: Willie Wepener, Rossouw de Klerk, Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Arno Botha, Dustin Jinka, Francois Brummer/Marnitz Boshoff, Jurgen Visser.

Western Province v Cheetahs

This is the game that could cause the biggest shake-up on the log, with Western Province holding onto second spot by their fingertips, with the Cheetahs also agonisingly close to home semi-final territory. The Sharks will move ahead of Province should they beat Griquas, but both teams will know that by winning here, they can position themselves most favourably in no worse than third spot, a scant point or two behind the Durbanites. Province have a nightmare injury toll which I feel will outweigh their home ground advantage and with the Cheetahs looking settled and menacing, I see the Bloem boys taking it. Cheetahs by 6 points.

WP: TBA

Cheetahs: 15. Hennie Daniller, 14. Rayno Benjamin, 13. Robert Ebersohn, 12. Philip Snyman, 11. Cameron Jacobs, 10. Johan Goosen, 9. Piet van Zyl, 8. Ashley Johnson, 7. Boom Prinsloo, 6. Pieter Labuschagne, 5. Izak van der Westhuizen, 4. Wilhelm Steenkamp, 3. Coenie Oosthuizen, 2. Adriaan Strauss (Captain), 1. Marcel Van Der Merwe
Replacements: 16. Hercu Liebenberg, 17. Trevor Nyakane, 18. Francois (FS) Uys, 19. Johan Wessels, 20. Tewis de Bruyn, 21. Sias Ebersohn, 22. Andries Strauss

  • Hendrik Roodt. I know there’s a blogger from NZ who’ll tell you how far below avg he is but personally I think he’s done really well this season to date. With us having only 4 recognised locks on the books at the moment + Alberts can fill the roll like he did for the Boks if necessary, this game is an opportunity to have a closer look at this physical type lock and decide if he’d be a good backup addition to the SR squad, if the selectors don’t feel Peet Marais is ready to step up yet.

  • Lionel Cronje getting a rare start for WP. JD Moller also getting his first game in a very long time (fallen well out of favour).

    WP to get crushed by Cheetahs IMO. Starting to resemble a club side now in that forward pack, so can’t see the backs getting near enough good ball.

    Must be. Probably not the right time to introduce Etzebeth so can’t say I’m unhappy about it.

    But at the same time think AC should stop blaming injuries. If you have a look they aren’t really missing that many players to injuries. Mostly it’s Springbok duty, something they should’ve been prepared for.

  • Also, I’d be pissed if I were the U21 coach. Has to pick new players each week. Now they’re left with no starting scrumhalf either :shock:

    6 of his players there, and another 2 out injured while playing for senior side (Kitshoff & Groom).

  • @hendrikp (Comment 28) : I’d still back the WP u21 to beat VS. Despite all the missing players, the 2 possies that they will hurt in the most are 8 and 9. Not having Scheuder or Groom means turning to an inexperienced starter in Fred Muller. At 8, Nizaam has been huge for them. He’s an 80min threat and a really good ball player. Otherwise it’s a good starting pack that should dominate VS and the line from 10-15 looks awesome on paper. I haven’t seen JP play in about 3 yrs but I can vouch for the rest of the guys. They are talented, quick and creative.
    Interesting to see that Sam Lane is preferred to Coleman and JP to Ryan Nell.

  • Agree, but it won’t hurt looking somewhat into the future. Freddie will not be around much longer, Lambie should have an adequate replacement. I also get the feeling that this kid may well slot nicely into either fullback or centre. His boot alone is worth having for you rather than against.

    And then Ludik imo have never reached his potential after leaving the Lions. I blame that devastating injury, and now this hand…..

    Anyway, I always say the Sharks must buy everything that looks half promising :mrgreen:
