Griffons get Meyer, Daniller

The Griffons will have a heavyweight midfield when they meet the Leopards in Welkom in a make-or-break Absa Currie Cup First Division rugby match on Saturday, after they have called on the two highly rated Cheetahs centres, Hennie Daniller and Hendrik Meyer.

News 24 reports that the big frames of Daniller and Meyer, who both tip the scales at more than 100kg, will pose a physical threat to the Leopards and give the team another dimension. They replace the former winger Giscard Pieters, who dropped out of the 22, and Werner Griesel.

Cheetahs flyhalf Jacques-Louis Potgieter, has provisionally been picked to meet the Leopards. The blonde pivot may have to stand in for Chris Rossouw against the Boland on Saturday. Veteran Kennedy Tsimba will then take Potgieter’s place.

The Griffons have lost the services of Ashley Johnson, who has been drafted onto the Free State bench. Sevens Springbok Jonothan Mokuena moves to number eight and Albert Parsons starts at six.

The Leopards will remember Parsons, who scored a hat-trick against them for the Free State in the Vodacom competition in Hoopstad earlier this season.

Griffons: Cecil Afrika; Howard Noble, Hennie Daniller, Hendrik Meyer, Shane Hancke; Jacques-Louis Potgieter/Kennedy Tsimba, Jandre Blom; Jonothan Mokuena, Ockie van Zyl, Albert Parsons, Windpomp van Rooyen, Isak van der Westhuizen, Gert Greyling, Andries Kruger, Sarel Louw (capt).

Reserves: Tros Botha, Ronnie Uys, Nicky Steyn, Shaun Botha, Danny Theron, Kennedy Tsimba/Johann van Niekerk, Darryl Coeries.


  • I am all for players being given chances to pl;ay for smaller unions if they are not needed by their own union during the CC.

    I would even go as far as saying players can move back to their union if needed, but these guys seem to be virtually running the griffons as a Cheetah B side.

    Or should that be Sharks C side. 😉

  • This article finally answers my question as to why JL Potgieter is not getting any game time at the Cheetahs and therfore costing my FL team big time. 🙁

  • @robdylan (Comment 8) :

    You already have too many players you don’t know what to do with…after playing them out of position and sitting them on the bench they lose form and remain promising but often under deliver….
