Allister Coetzee, head coach of DHL WP, today named a match 22, to take on the Pumas at Puma Stadium in Witbank, on Friday 26 August, with 9 positional and other changes to the 22 that beat the Lions last Friday in Cape Town.

7’s specialist Steven Hunt gets a run at 14 with Danie Poolman dropping to the bench. Nick Koster returns from injury at 8 in for the injured Pieter Louw. Nizaam Carr gets a start at 7 in for the injured Siya Kolisi and Tiaan Liebenberg returns as captain and hooker for the injured Deon Fourie. On the bench Scarra Ntubeni provides cover at hooker, whilst Tertius Daniller covers loose forward. Louis Schreuder returns to cover 9, with Marcel Brache and Danie Poolman covering the backline in jerseys 21 and 22 respectively.

Wimpie van der Waldt and Stephan Greeff will also travel to Witbank as potential bench players. Carr and de Kock did not train today. Whilst both are expected to be fine for the game, should either not be fit, their currently benched cover (Daniller and Roux) will start, with van Der Waldt and Greeff coming on to the bench.
