The first of four very important rugby matches taking place today is in Kimberley, where the current bottom of the log Griquas hosts the top of the log Lions.

After the Bulls win over Western Province last night, Griquas are once again at the bottom of the Currie Cup log, and now require a win over the Lions to jump up the log and keep themselves out of the all-important relegation match.

The Lions are still top of the log, and only one team can overtake them at the top of the log, but will want to win and secure firstly a home semi-final, and potentially even a home final, a right that won them the Cup last season.

Griquas: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Jannie Boshoff, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 JP Nel, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Rynhardt Landman, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes (captain), 1 Steph Roberts.

Replacements: 16 Matt Dobson, 17 Ivann Espag, 18 Edwin Hewitt, 19 Jaco Nepgen, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Marnitz Boshoff, 22 Walter Venter.

Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Deon Van Rensburg, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Butch James, 9 Ross Cronje, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Jaco Kriel, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco Van der Merwe, 4 Michael Rhodes, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse Van Rensburg (captain).

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Caylib Oosthuizen, 18 Willie Britz, 19 Derick Minnie, 20 Guy Cronje, 21 Dylan Des Fountain, 22 James Kamana.

  • The Lions line out woes continue. TMO try for Griekwas. Looks like double movement to me, but the TMO awards the try for Lourens Adriaanse

  • Now we just need the Cheetahs to win then we are 1 step closer to the Bulls playing relegation / promotion…

    Strange that Currie Cup tourno is so much more advanced that there is a promotion / relegation match….hmmm
