Province name their team

Western Province coach Alistair Coetzee has named a full-strength line-up to take on the Lions in a do-or-die match at Newlands this weekend.

Flyhalf Peter Grant has been named to start, despite coming off injured against Boland in Wellington last week. Also in the team is regular skipper Jean de Villiers, forced to pull out at the eleventh hour last week after a bout of illness. Morgan Newman makes way for de Villiers at inside centre and joins veteran Percy Montgomery on the bench.

Ricky Januarie is back at scrumhalf this week, after been given the week off to get married. Bolla Conradie will be on the bench, whilst the unlucky Dewald Duvenage drops out of the squad entirely.

In the pack, regular tight-fivers Brian Mujati and Adriaan Fondse are both fit and take over from JC Kritzinger and AJ Venter respectively, with the latter named players on the bench. Schalk Brits gets a start at hooker, with Deon Fourie one of three front-row reserves on the bench. With AJ Venter named as the only second and back row reserve, we should probably expect Schalk Brits to spend some time amongst the loose forwards in the second half.

WP team to face the Lions:

15. Conrad Jantjes
14. Joe Pietersen
13. Sireli Naqelevuki
12. Jean De Villiers (Capt)
11. Wylie Human
10. Peter Grant
9. Ricky Januarie
8. Luke Watson
7. Francois Louw
6. Schalk Burger
5. Andries Bekker
4. Adriaan Fondse
3. Brian Mujati
2. Schalk Brits
1. Wicus Blaauw


16. Deon Fourie
17. JC Kritzinger
18. Schalk Ferreira
19. AJ Venter
20. Bolla Conradie
21. Percy Montgomery
22. Morgan Newman

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 3) :
    Only one original Valie, the others you lot poached anyway, 1 from Zim Mujatsi, 1 rolling stone Wylie but at least he is closer to his roots now, Schalk & Januarie is as Kaaps as can be.

    You do have quite a few Bolanders roots in your current team. 🙄

  • Would have kept Fourie at 2

  • @PJLD (Comment 5) : Agree he is hot at the moment.

    Also will pick Duvenhage on the bench (OK I am biased) and what happen to Chavangha?

  • Comment 6, posted at 01.10.08 15:40:00 by PaarlBok Reply

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 6) : That is actually a very good question boet.

    Fourie is the biz at the moment man ,and he is still a laaitie.

  • @PJLD (Comment 7) : Think he wins us the games against the brutes on newlands and was the only one standing up to Boland on the weekend.

    Schalk Brits beter sy gat in rat kry.

  • At least Schalk and JDV will getn extra two weeks rest before the EOYT… let’s hope the Bok conditioning coaches work with them (do we have any?)…

  • I’m nervous about this and it’s only because it actually is possible.

    With those backs anything can happen.

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 4) :

    Im fairly sure I didn’t say they are from the ‘Lions’ areas but they were given a chance there and also made their names playing for the Lions.Which is a indicment of Province being fairly oblvious to the talent that they had.

    If last weekend is anything to go by then I have to agree with you…
    Especially in the scrums…

    Schalk will keep us busy in th eloose though (like he does every team)…

    So you should be..its also laughable that you Problem supporters actually think you can score 4 tries and win by 19 after the last weeks debacle.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 16) : Long time no see. Get positive! 😆

    @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 17) : Trust me WeePee have the most schoolboy talent over the years and some have to move to make a break. Was like that in the past and will be like that in the future.

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 19) : Bru Boooeland & WeeePeee comes a long long way. From the time I can remember about rugby and that go to the day of Mike Jennings, WitKop Dawie and HO de Villiers. Never easy for WeePee to klap Boland, lets call it the small vs big syndrome and it always deliver a beauty between the two of them. Give credit to Boooeland.

    The Welpies on Newlands, something totally different for our lot. The Valies struggle with the SuidOoster.

    Yeh but you don’t havce anything out wide…
    But Jantjies did look good with ball in hand for the first time since the away Ausie test…

    His dumb goose steps that actually ONLY solows him down and makes it easier for the oppo to stop him…

  • On current form I’ll back Ludik…except for kicking out of hand…there Jantjes is better…

  • Did you guys see the tackle Ludik made on a full paced Kankopwski…stop him dead and took him back…Ludik is by far SA’s best defensive fullback and has been for over a year…
    He just needs to work on his kicking out of hand…else he will never make it into the Bokke side…

    Who is planning on kicking?????
    YOu score tries with ball in hand…and the SuidOoster is not gonna help you there….

  • @Hmmm (Comment 26) :

    You better be worried on Bru Earls kicking. Vokket he cant even kick at altetude and with the amount of boooeing he’ll receive from the stands, think it will be a safer bet to try and kick outta hand. 💡

  • @PaarlBok (Comment 32) :

    Yip…Kankow did that and in his 24th or 25th gained he got tackled right back to 21/22 by Ludik…

    And I was not talking about when Killian went for the intercept and Kanko ran down the touchline with the ball…or when Fourie went inside and the ball went to Kankow and only was able to catch him when he was a good few meters across the gain line and passed to JPP to score….

    No he DID play really well…

    But he was quiet for a while after that tackle…

    My point I was trying to make was Ludik’s defense…was not about Kanko…paarl made it about Kanko…

    If the Sharks, Cheetahs and Lions win big this weekend then I’ll have another good round. Too bad the Bulle can like to pick a B team 😐 …I’ll lose a lot of points there.

    @klempie (Comment 53) : Yeah…that was a wake up call for them…but they came back nicely to blast Porto by 4-0.

    Go Liverpool!

  • WP should thrash Lions at Newlands — but sadly WP only have 6 forwards. Watson & Brits always hanging around at fullback or wing.
    I think WP will win but won’t get the bonus point.
