A super Saturday of rugby continues, with the first Currie Cup match for the day seeing Western Province travel to Kimberley to tackle a fresh faced Griquas outfit.

Griquas have been forced into a shuffle in the backline, following the loss of three players, two to injury and another to suspension, with pivot Francois Brummer moving to fullback and Marnitz Boshoff getting a run at flyhalf.

Western Province were forced into a late shuffle of their own, with Tiaan Liebenberg getting the call up to the national side and Deon Fourie going to his β€˜other’ preferred position of hooker. The backline also sees a host of changes, with Dewaldt Duvenhage rested, Burton Francis injured and replaced by the Kings-bound Demetri Catrakilis and rookie Ederies Arendse getting a spot on the wing.

All in all, both teams will be desperate for their first win of the season, but I fancy Western Province will be just too strong for the men from Kimberley. But don’t rule out an upset!

Griquas: 15 Francois Brummer, 14 Wilmaure Louw, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Jacques Coetzee, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Wesley Wilkins, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Ligtoring Landman, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes (captain), 1 Steph Roberts.

Replacements: 16 Matt Dobson, 17 Janro van Niekerk, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 Jaco Nepgen, 20 Marnus Hugo, 21 Walter Venter, 22 Richard Lawson.

Western Province: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Ederies Arendse, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Jebb Sinclair, 6 Tyrone Holmes, 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Don Armand, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Deon Fourie (captain), 1 Steven Kitshoff.

Replacements: 16 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17 Brok Harris, 18 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 19 Yaya Hartzenberg, 20 Nic Groom, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Damian de Allende.

  • Kimberley’s pitch is always awful, but that is what makes it so difficult to win there. I hope Griquas win this. Maybe, just maybe, they will be able to finish 5th this season.
