Already weakened by the continued absence of star playmaker Sarel Pretorius, Griquas coach Abrie Minnie has been dealt a further blow ahead of his side’s round 2 Currie Cup clash against the Lions.

Former Bulls age-group winger Rocco Jansen – one of the stars in the 26-all draw at Newlands in round 1, scoring a brace of tries – has been ruled out after breaking a bone in his hand. Jansen’s place in the starting lineup goes to Sevens star Fabian Juries, while Sharks Academy recruit Shannon Rick continues in the number 9 jersey.

Loose forward Justin Downey and flyhalf Monty Dumond are the other former Sharks players in the lineup.

Griquas – 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Richard Lawson, 13 Wilmaure Louw, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Fabian Juries, 10 Monty Dumond, 9 Shannon Rick, 8 Jonathan Mokuena (capt), 7 Davon Raubenheimer, 6 Justin Downey, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes, 1 Steph Roberts.
Subs: 16 Matthew Dobson, 17 Jean Botha, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 Jaco Nepgen, 20 Matthew Rosslee, 21 Logan Basson, 22 Rudi Vogt.

  • Just as I thought!! 😕

    Richard Lawson was on WP’s books for quite a few years.

    He seems to have developed nicely. I can’t believe we didn’t really give him a shot while he was with us. 👿

  • @wpw (Comment 5) : i`m not a huge fan of lawson, he lacks pace for a wing. he did well with the try Jansen scored, but should have scored it himself if he had better pace. what other positions can he play?

  • @VanWilder (Comment 6) :

    If I’m not mistaken he started out as a fullback.

    he was pretty skinny back then but he has certainly bulked up – weighs a hefty 94kgs at the moment!!

  • @wpw (Comment 7) : i think he would make a brilliant 13. his a good player with good skills, but i think wing is not his position. maybe fullback would suit him aswell, if he`s got a healthy boot.
