The last game of the weekend, and we see two teams that are expected to be at the top of the log, meandering along in mid table after a draw for Province and a loss for the Bulls in the first round. Both teams picked up wins in the second round, but were still far from convincing.

The home team obviously has some advantage going into this game, and if the “away” Bulls that played the Sharks in the opening round play in similar fashion, the Province team should walk this game.

The packs are both pretty ordinary with the Western Province backline filled with young stars overshadowing an ordinary looking Bulls backline, and I think this is where the difference in this match will be.

Western Province: 15. Conrad Jantjes, 14. Danie Poolman, 13. Johann Sadie, 12. Tim Whitehead, 11. JJ Engelbrecht, 10. Demetri Catrakilis, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Siya Kolisi, 6. Rohan Kitshoff, 5. De Kock Steenkamp, 4. Hilton Lobberts, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg (Captain), 1. Wicus Blaauw

Replacements: 16. Deon Fourie, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. Adriaan Fondse, 19. Nicholas Sean Fenton-Wells, 20. Louis Schreuder, 21. Isma-eel Dollie, 22. Marcel Brache

Blue Bulls: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Stephan Dippenaar, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Gerhard van den Heever, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Dustin Jinka, 8 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 7 Dewald Potgieter, 6 Derick Kuün, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Fudge Mabeta, 3 Rossouw de Klerk, 2 Gary Botha (captain), 1 Corné Fourie.

Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Warwick Tecklenburg, 19 CJ Stander, 20 Lohan Jacobs, 21 Marnitz Boshoff, 22 Francois Venter.

  • Really stoked to see Warwick Tecklenburg on the Bulls bench. Some good memories of the Tecklenburg farm outside of Barberton when I was growing up.
