5 Boks start against the Kwas

JP Pietersen has selected a strong team containing 5 capped Boks (Mchunu, Nyakane, Mapimpi, Esterhuizen and Fassi) to start against the Griquas in Kimberley. Phepsi Buthelezi will also feature in the blind side flank position with Nick Hatton retaining the number 8 jersey.


Lionel Cronje at flyhalf against the Lions

Interesting the new Currie Cup coach JP Pietersen has selected a number of players that have been reported as being released (e.g. Murray Koster, Kerron van Vuuren) or retired (Lionel Cronje) along with a number of youngsters that played with him at U21 level. Old war horse Reniel Hugo is still around to mentor the youngsters in the pack. Good to see Tino Mavesere back from his ban. Nic Hatton will captain the team from behind the scrum.


Team for Lions game

Joey Mongale has again made some rotational changes for the game against the Lions. Khwezi Mona, Fez Mbatha and Henco Venter start in place of Dian Bleurer, Dameon Venter and Celimpilo Gumede who all drop out of the squad. Tiaan Fourie, Alwayno Visagie and Aphelele Fassi start in place of Bradley Davids, Rohan Janse van Rensburg and Marnus Potgieter who all drop to the bench. Kerron van Vuuren comes into the squad onto the bench.
