The Lions received a timely boost with the news that captain Cobus Grobbelaar has been cleared and will lead the team in their decisive Currie Cup encounter with Western Province at Newlands on Saturday.

Grobbelaar took a knock to the calf in his team’s loss to the Sharks last week, but there was no serious damage and he will travel with the team to Cape Town.

Lions coach Eugene Eloff made just a few changes to his matchday squad.

Justin Wheeler replaces the injured Derick Minnie at flank, with Wilhelm Koch taking the place of Wheeler on the bench.

Springbok Sevens star Jaco Van Schalkwyk returns from injury and takes over in the No.22 jersey as a utility back on the bench from Rayno Benjamin.

The Lions, who need just one point from the game to secure their place in the play-offs, know that Province must win, score at least four tries and ensure the margin is 19 points or more.

Lions: 15 Louis Ludik, 14 Michael Killian, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Trompie Nontshinga, 10 Earl Rose, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Ernst Joubert, 7 Justin Wheeler, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Anton van Zyl, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Heinke van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Ethienne Reynecke, 17 Lawrence Sephaka, 18 Jannes Labuschagne, 19 Wilhelm Koch, 20 Chris Jonck, 21 Louis Strydom, 22 Jaco Van Schalkwyk.

Date: Saturday, October 4
Venue: Newlands, Cape Town
Kick-off: 17.05 (15.05 GMT)
Referee: Craig Joubert
Touch judges: Sindile Mayende, Marc van Zyl
TMO: Willie Roos

  • The Lions winning on Sat or securing a semi spot is just delaying the inevitable for said team…its time the union bucks up and spends some money and get some real players to the union instead of pretenders.

  • i can see in my crystal ball, schalk falling on the ruck to keep the ball warm. watson running around in circles trying to work out what to do and baywatch breaking province. actually you don’t need a crystal ball to see that.

  • We told Koch he is too short to get a Lions contract, but looks like he is tall enough for the bench!

  • South African flyhalf Derick Hougaard will make his injury-delayed debut for Leicester this weekend.

    The Cheetahs and Griffons have been found innocent of breaching the rule governing the use of illegal players.

    Cricketer Herschelle Gibbs will go on trial for drunk driving on December 3, a Cape Town magistrate has ordered.

    This concludes the News Highlights for this hour…..

  • Jannie en Sannie klap ‘n toon deur Pretoria Dieretuin toe Sannie snaakse goed begin sien: “Jannie, hoekom sit daai een hasie Bo-op die ander een?” Jannie stop vir so rukkie en sê? “Hulle is besig om sigarette te maak.” Hulle loop verby nog so paar diere wat heeltyd “sigarette” maak en na so ‘n rukkie vra Sannie: “Dit lyk my al die diere maak sigarette. Hoekom maak ek en jy nie ook sigarette nie?” Jannie nooi homself nie twee keer nie en hy en Sannie pomp virre vale agter die beerhokke. Na hulle klaar is stap hulle so entjie verder toe Sannie vra: “Jannie, nou watse soort sigarette het ek en jy gemaak?”. Jannie stop en dink so bietjie na: “Wel, as jy ‘n hobbel op jou maag kry, het ons Camel gemaak, en as daar nie een kom nie, was dit Lucky Strike.”

  • A truck driver is cruising along when he spots a little yellow man
    standing in the middle of the road, crying. He brings the truck to a
    standstill, rolls down the window, and asks the little man what’s

    “I’m yellow, I’m from Venus, I’m gay and I’m hungry,” sobs the
    little man.
    “Well,” says the trucker, “I can offer you a cheese sandwich, but
    that’s as much as I can do.”

    So he passes a sandwich to the little man and drives off.

    A bit later he has to stop again, because there’s a little red man
    in the middle of the road, crying. So he comes to a halt, rolls down
    the window and a bit more impatiently – asks the little man what the
    matter is.

    “I’m red, I’m from Mars, I’m gay and I’m thirsty,” the little man
    So the trucker says, “I can offer you a can of Coke, but that’s as
    much as can do.”

    He hands a tin of Coke down to the little man and drives off.

    A little further on, the trucker spots a little blue man in the
    middle of the road. Really annoyed now, he stops, rolls down the
    window and snaps,” Yes, you little blue moffie, what planet are you
    from and what the f…k do you want?”

    And the little man answers, “Your driver’s license, please…”

  • @McLovin (Comment 19) :

    I have it LIONS to win by 18…
    They looked real good on attack against the Sharks and this whole CC season they have been finishing off well (only second to the Bulls and tries scorers and not by much)…
    Their defence has been good conceding the second least tries second only to the Cheetahs I think(?)…but they had craze moments in games that cost them a few games…Cheetahs 2 intercept tries (one off the base of the scrum)…Sharks to “intercept” kicks (that’s the only way you can describe those…lol)…but they still managed to score tries in most games…I think 9 in total against the Bulls…5 or so against the Cheetahs…5 in the game vs. WP at Die Blik…and I don’t think they are going to score 4…but a combination of WP being to over eager to score and the LIONS defence (similar to last week)…Earl to save face…I think the LIONS are going to win by between 10 and 20….

  • On trompie…

    I donno if I am just happy cozz we actually have two wings that look like they actually have a chance of scoring a try or if Trompie is really looking good…
    He moves forward with drive and he covers his channel quite well in defence…

    He is actually looky one of the better wings in the comp over the last 3/4 weeks…only clear standout above him is Nokwe…

  • Een oggend kom Sannie uit die badkamer gohol en skreeu “Ma Ma ek kry hare op my koek”.
    Haar ma is geskok en se “Skaam jou om so te se. Se eerder ek kry hare op my apie.”
    Sannie loop heeldag trots rond en kan nie wag dat haar ousus van die werk af kom nie.
    Daai aand se sy aan ousus. “Sussie ek kry hare op my apie”.
    Nou toe nou antwoord Sannie se ouer suster.
    “Dis nog niks nie. Myne eet al piesangs”

  • ‘n Bejaarde Italianer gaan na die plaaslike kerk om te bieg.

    “Vader, toe ek ‘n jong man was, gedurende die Tweede Wêreldoorlog, het ‘n pragtige vrou aan my deur geklop en gevra dat ek haar vir die vyand wegsteek.”
    “Dit was ‘n wonderlike ding om te doen, my seun! En jy hoef nie daaroor te bieg nie.”
    “Sy het begin om my terug te betaal met seksuele gunste.”
    “As jy regtig jammer is oor jou dade, is jy inderdaad vergewe”.
    “Dankie, Vader. Moet ek vir haar sê die oorlog is verby?”

  • blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn.
    She rolled the dice and she landed on Science & Nature. Her question was:
    “If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?”
    She thought for a time and then asked, “Is it on or off?”
