Western Province have made a late announcement of their team to take on the Blue Bulls at Newlands on Saturday, with Stephan Coetzee the only change to the starting line-up.

Coetzee takes the place of the injured Tiaan Liebenburg in the front row..

However, coach Alister Coetzee have made 5 more changes on his bench with the return of prop Brok Harris (shoulder), lock Ruan Botha (ankle), flank Rynhardt Elstadt (shoulder) and flyhalf Kurt Coleman (knee) and Jaco Taute who is back from compassionate leave.

Coetzee didn’t want to rush his Super Rugby experience player back into the team ans spoke about rather sticking with the players that did a good job for them against the Kings in the first game of the season

‘Like I said earlier this week, we needed to marry continuity with players coming back,’ said Coetzee. ‘I am comfortable with the selections we have made this week and I have full confidence in each and every player in the team.’

Western Province – 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Juan de Jongh (c), 12 Michael van der Spuy, 11 Seabelo Senatla, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Michael Rhodes, 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Manuel Carizza, 4 Jean Kleyn, 3 Pat Cilliers, 2 Stephan Coetzee, 1 Alistair Vermaak.

Subs: 16 Neil Rautenbach, 17 Brok Harris, 18 Ruan Botha, 19 Rynhardt Elstadt, 20 Louis Schreuder, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Jaco Taute.
