Griquas have named their team to take on the Kings in a Super Rugby warm up game on Wednesday evening, with a fair amount of well-known names popping up. This game could be another humdinger, with the Griquas team having a point to prove.

You don’t get much more experienced than Steph Roberts in the front row, and he is sure to give the Kings front row a hard time, and with Cheetahs Super Rugby places up for grabs, the likes of Justin Downey and Leon Karemaker are sure to put a bit of effort in.

The backline will be run by Burton Francis, with speedsters Rocco Jansen and Luzuko Vulindlu on the wings and Richard Lawson at the back. In midfield we see captain PJ Vermeulen join up with ex-Shark boy Jean Stemmet.

The bench also sees a few recognisable names in Marnus Schoeman and Walter Venter.

The match takes place at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Wednesday night at 19h00.

  • that’s a solid line up and makes me think the Cheetahs may not battle for depth quite as badly this year as they usually do.

  • Since 2009 I think Burton Francis has played for Bulls, Lions, Wp, SWD and now Griquas
