A super Saturday of rugby continues, with the first Currie Cup match for the day seeing Western Province travel to Kimberley to tackle a fresh faced Griquas outfit.

Griquas have been forced into a shuffle in the backline, following the loss of three players, two to injury and another to suspension, with pivot Francois Brummer moving to fullback and Marnitz Boshoff getting a run at flyhalf.

Western Province were forced into a late shuffle of their own, with Tiaan Liebenberg getting the call up to the national side and Deon Fourie going to his ‘other’ preferred position of hooker. The backline also sees a host of changes, with Dewaldt Duvenhage rested, Burton Francis injured and replaced by the Kings-bound Demetri Catrakilis and rookie Ederies Arendse getting a spot on the wing.

All in all, both teams will be desperate for their first win of the season, but I fancy Western Province will be just too strong for the men from Kimberley. But don’t rule out an upset!

Griquas: 15 Francois Brummer, 14 Wilmaure Louw, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Jacques Coetzee, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Wesley Wilkins, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Ligtoring Landman, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes (captain), 1 Steph Roberts.

Replacements: 16 Matt Dobson, 17 Janro van Niekerk, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 Jaco Nepgen, 20 Marnus Hugo, 21 Walter Venter, 22 Richard Lawson.

Western Province: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Ederies Arendse, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Jebb Sinclair, 6 Tyrone Holmes, 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Don Armand, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Deon Fourie (captain), 1 Steven Kitshoff.

Replacements: 16 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17 Brok Harris, 18 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 19 Yaya Hartzenberg, 20 Nic Groom, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Damian de Allende.

  • Kimberley’s pitch is always awful, but that is what makes it so difficult to win there. I hope Griquas win this. Maybe, just maybe, they will be able to finish 5th this season.
