The weekend of rugby action kicks off a bit later with a minnow battle of epic proportions. Both teams will have targeted this match in the preseason as a must win, and as it stands, both teams can quite easily walk away with the spoils.

As Rob mentioned in the preview and predictions article, both teams have not won a match so far, even though both came extremely close in the first round, and the Pumas even running the Sharks close last week to complete an impressive start to the season.

I would not put any money on this game, but being forced to make a prediction does make me look towards the men in pink to steal this match. Either way, we can expect a close game.

Pumas: 15 MJ Mentz, 14 Deon Scholtz, 13 JW Jonker, 12 Tiaan Marx, 11 Shandré Frolick, 10 Coenie van Wyk, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Christo le Roux, 7 Jaco Bouwer, 6 Corné Steenkamp (captain), 5 Marius Coetzer, 4 Willem Serfontein, 3 Ashley Buys, 2 Pellow van der Westhuizen, 1 Dawie Steyn.

Replacements: 16 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 17 De-Jay Terblanche, 18 Eduan van der Walt, 19 RW Kember, 20 Tian Meyer, 21 Johan Jackson, 22 Carl Bezuidenhout.

Griquas: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Richard Lawson, 13. Jean Stemmet, 12. Barry Geel, 11. Dusty Noble, 10. Earl Rose, 9. Marnus Hugo, 8. Jonathan Mokuena (Captain), 7. Davon Raubenheimer, 6. Justin Downey, 5. Martin Muller, 4. Hendrik Roodt, 3. Lourens Adriaanse, 2. Ryno Barnes, 1. Steph Roberts

Replacements: 16. Matthew Dobson, 17. Jean Botha, 18. Frederik Albertus Spies, 19. Burger Schoeman, 20. Warren Malgas, 21. Matthew Rosslee, 22. Rudi Vogt

  • i reckon the Pumas will take this one by 10+, simply because they have good physical pack with a very fast and creative backline.

  • Sorry, about the miss understanding about the drop goals, The stadium score had the second drop as over and from where i was i couldn’t see if it went over, i know for a fact the first one was missed thou. Anywayz seems all cleared up now. I was surprised by Rose actually, he played really well apart from his kicking. His distribution led to two of the Griquas tries to kudos to him for playing some good rugby again.
