WP coach Allister Coetzee has made three changes to his side for their clash against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this Saturday evening.

Nic Groom and Damian de Allende replace the injured duo of Dewaldt Duvenage (broken leg) and Ederies Arendse (shoulder) respectively. Some may see this as a blessing considering the performances of these two young starlets when they came on as substitutes during last week’s annihilation of the Bulls at Newlands. WP supporters have been crying out for a scrumhalf with a quick pass as well as the ability to take sniping runs which is exactly what Groom did to good effect last week.

The final change to the starting XV sees Brok Harris replace Frans Malherbe at tighthead.

WP team:

15. Gio Aplon
14. Gerhard van den Heever
13. JP du Plessis
12. Marcel Brache
11. Damian de Allende**
10. Demetri Catrakilis
9. Nic Groom
8. Jebb Sinclair
7. Rynhardt Elstadt
6. Deon Fourie (captain)
5. De Kock Steenkamp
4. Don Armand
3. Brok Harris
2. Siyabonga Ntubeni
1. Deon Carstens

16. Steven Kitshoff
17. Frans Malherbe
18. Wilhelm van der Sluys
19. Helmut Lehmann
20. Louis Schreuder
21. Patrick Howard*
22. Kurt Coleman
