Injuries sustained during last weekend’s narrow loss to the Sharks have forced changes to the Griquas team that takes on Western Province on Friday.

Gouws Prinsloo comes in at fullback for PJ Vermeulen, who suffered a horror leg-break early in the game, while the timely return of Jaco Nepgen (at 5 lock) makes up for the loss of victor Kruger, who also broke his leg. Leon Karemaker comes in at number 8 to replace Carel Greeff, who decided to be odd man out by breaking his hand, rather than his leg. The final injury change sees Jean Stemmet start ahead of JP Nel, who hurt his knee.

The only unforced change sees Jacques Coetzee start ahead of Marnus Hugo at scrumhalf.

Griquas: 15. Gouws Prinsloo, 14. Nico Scheepers, 13. Jean Stemmet, 12. Howard Mnisi, 11. Rocco Jansen, 10. Francois Brummer, 9. Jacques Coetzee, 8. Leon Karemaker, 7. Burger Schoeman, 6. Marnus Schoeman , 5. Jaco Nepgen, 4. Rory Arnold, 3. Nick Schonert, 2. Ryno Barnes (Captain), 1. Steph Roberts
Substitutes: 16. Matthew Dobson, 17. Brummer Badenhorst, 18. Patrick O’Brien, 19. RJ Liebenberg, 20. Marnus Hugo, 21. Du Randt Gerber, 22. Richard Lawson


  • Not to sound like a broken record but the Kwas need to find the money to fix up their field, I’m sure it would cut down on their injury rate.
