Griquas coach Dawie Theron has selected on-loan Sharks forwards Justin Downey and Luvo Lusaseni in his starting lineup to face the Cheetahs in Kimberley this weekend.

Both players only joined the Griquas squad at the beginning of the week, but their impact has been such (and Griquas’ injury list so long) that they’ve been thrown straight into the cauldron for this vital game – a clear step up from the Murray Cup semi-final they played in for Rovers last weekend. Griquas have dropped out of the top four for the first time this season as a result of their loss against the Sharks, but a good win against the old foe will see them right back in play-off contention.

Another former Shark, centre Jean Stemmet, has been bracketed on the bench with Richard Lawson.

Griquas: 15 Riaan Viljoen; 14 Rocco Jansen, 13 Wilmaure Louw, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Bjorn Basson; 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Sarel Pretorius; 8 Burger Schoeman, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Rohan Kitshoff, 5 Cecil Kemp, 4 Luvuyiso Lusaseni, 3 Jean Botha, 2 Rayno Barnes, 1 Steph Roberts.
Reserves: 16 Simon Westraadt, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse/Zane Killian/Ivan Espag, 18 Edwin Hewitt, 19 Biscuit van Deventer, 20 Marnus Hugo, 21 Richard Lawson/Jean Stemmet, 22 Rudi Vogt.
