Western Province are at home to the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup. A win is vital for both sides, as the loser will find it hard to stay in the top four this week.Will Province show that they have truly turned the corner and have the pack to live with the Lions?

Or will the Joburg boys improve on a performance that saw them win everything but the game against the Sharks last week?

  • Good win by WP but the Lions defense was pretty good.

    Peter Grant is not playing well at all… I wonder if he is really leaving cos it certainly seems as if his mind is somewhere else.
