Angelo Davids makes his return to the DHL Western Province team among five changes for the Carling Currie Cup clash with Windhoek Draught Griquas in Stellenbosch on Friday.
Davids is back from duty with the BlitzBoks and on the wing for the game against the Kimberley team, which kicks off at 16h00 on Friday at the Danie Craven Stadium. Tickets are available for just R50 from Webtickets.
The only other change to the backline sees Thomas Bursey start at scrumhalf, forming a new halfback pairing with captain Tim Swiel.
There is an all-new lock pairing of Simon Miller and Ben-Jason Dixon, while Keke Morabe starts at the back of the scrum, with Junior Pokomela on the flank.
DHL Western Province Head Coach Jerome Paarwater said that his team is looking forward to playing in Stellenbosch.
“It is fantastic for us to be playing out here at the Danie Craven Stadium for what should be an entertaining game.
“Our players are determined to make the most of every minute out there and show what playing in this jersey means to them,” he said.
