CC Game 55 – Western Province (43) vs Pumas (18) F/T

Western Province have Bokked up for their match against the Pumas this afternoon/evening, with six returning Springboks selected in the match 22, as they attempt to qualify for the semi finals next weekend. It is a straight fight between the Bulls, Griquas and Western Province for fourth spot, and by the time this game kicks off, Province will know exactly what they need to do.

The Province backline is one of the most exciting I have seen all Currie Cup season and Demetri Catrakilis must be likcing his lips at the thought of having both Jean de Villiers and Juan de Jongh outside him.

The Pumas, after quite a season where they started very slowly, battling to close down matches, eventually got their first win in the second round of matches, and then built up a head of steam, even knocking over Griquas. We bid them farewell from Currie Cup action, and wish them all the best in the lower division.

WP: 15. Gio Aplon, 14. JJ Engelbrecht, 13. Juan de Jongh, 12. Jean de Villiers (Captain), 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Demetri Catrakilis, 9. Nick Groom, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Siya Kolisi, 6. Pieter Louw, 5. Adriaan Fondse, 4. Hilton Lobberts, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Deon Fourie, 1. JC Kritzinger

Replacements: 16. Tiaan Liebenberg, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. Tertius Daniller, 19. Schalk Burger, 20. Louis Schreuder, 21. Jaque Fourie, 22. Conrad Jantjes

Pumas: 15. MJ Mentz, 14. Deon Scholtz, 13. JW Jonker, 12. Dewald Pretorius, 11. Johan Jackson, 10. Carl Bezuidenhout, 9. Shaun Venter, 8. Christo le Roux, 7. Jaco Bouwer, 6. Corne Steenkamp (Captain), 5. Eduan Van Der Walt, 4. Willem Serfontein, 3. Ashley Buys, 2. Pellow van der Westhuizen, 1. Dawie Steyn

Replacements: 16. Torsten van Jaarsveld, 17. Brett Nel, 18. JP Mostert, 19. RW Kember, 20. Hendrik van der Nest, 21. Coenie van Wyk, 22. Siviwe Magaba

  • So it’s Lions vs Province and Sharks vs Cheetahs

    You really do have to feel sorry for the Lions supporters. All season they’ve been blowing their trumpets…top of the log…home semi and if they’re lucky a final. But all of that and to fall short at the finish line will be gut wrenching.
