The last round of Currie Cup action continues as we head down to Newlands, where Western Province host the Cheetahs, in a winner takes semi-final spot match.

WP coach Allister Coetzee has not held back with the selection of his returning Springboks, and who blames him with so much on the line. This team now sees a healthy mix of youth and experience, but one has to wonder what the effect of all the changes will be on the fluency of this team.

The Cheetahs have also selected all of their Springboks with both Coenie Oosthuizen and Adriaan Strauss featuring in the starting line-up, with Coenie selected on the tighthead side of the scrum, in his new preferred position.

Should be a cracker of a match, so hold onto your seats.

Western Province: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Don Armand, 6 Deon Fourie, 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Steven Kitshoff.

Replacements: 16 Scarra Ntubeni, 17 Brok Harris, 18 De Kock Steenkamp, 19 Jebb Sinclair, 20 Louis Schreuder, 21 Marcel Brache, 22 Gio Aplon.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Nico Scheepers, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Andries Strauss, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Francois Uys, 6 Hendro Scholtz, 5 Izak van der Westhuizen, 4 Carl Wegner, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Marcel van der Merwe.

Replacements: 16 Hercu Liebenberg, 17 Ross Geldenhuys, 18 Waltie Vermeulen, 19 Davon Raubenheimer, 20 Tewis de Bruyn, 21 Philip Snyman, 22 Ryno Benjamin.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 2) : Kings had 40% possession and played 62% of the game in their own half. Sadly, the Bulls are going to kill them.

  • John Mitchell made a good point on this week’s Reunion… Said that because Australia has too many teams in Super Rugby the mediocre players have lowered the benchmark for the good players (ie: the Wallabies)and made them mediocre too. It’s a well known fact that by playing better opponents mediocre players improve their game. This is why it is essential to have Springboks playing in the Currie Cup as much as possible. Otherwise the whole competition is going to go down the pan, and with it the unions who rely on it for their income. We are never going to consistently produce world-beating talent if we dumb our provincial competition down like this. Not only is it boring to watch but it’s slowly killing the game.
