Western Province have named their team to take on Griquas at Newlands on Friday evening.

The one-week suspension handed to Michael Rhodes means a change at loose forward, with Rohan Kitshoff coming in to start in the number 6 jersey worn by Rynhardt Elstadt last week. The latter moves across to the blindside to replace Rhodes, who received a red acrd at Loftus last week for stamping on Bulls captain Jono Ross.

The other change to the starting lineup sees Nic Groom rotated in at scrumhalf, with Louis Schreuder dropping to the wood.

Mike Willemse continues as reserve hooker, after news this week that Tiaan Liebenberg is likely to be out for the remainder of the season.

Western Province: 15. Gio Aplon, 14. Gerhard van den Heever, 13. Juan de Jongh, 12. Damian de Allende, 11. Cheslin Kolbe, 10. Kurt Coleman, 9. Nic Groom, 8. Nizaam Carr, 7. Rynhardt Elstadt, 6. Rohan Kitshoff, 5. De Kock Steenkamp (captain), 4. Taz Fuzani, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Scarra Ntubeni, 1. Steven Kitshoff
Substitutes: 16. Michael Willemse, 17. Brok Harris, 18. Gerbrandt Grobler, 19. Rayn Smid, 20. Josh Katzen, 21. Louis Schreuder, 22. Demetri Catrakilis
