Following the announcement of the wider squad of 35 players earlier today, there have been a number of media queries relating to the fact that all five foreign players are still listed in the squad.

Please note the following, to be attributed to Eastern Province Rugby President, Cheeky Watson.

The squad announced today is the wider squad that has been requested by SANZAR, and which had to be submitted to them ahead of the official start of the season, in line with their tournament rules and regulations.

This squad could be reduced further in due course.

The following relates to changes in the squad, and can be attributed to Director of Rugby, Alan Solomons.

Players dropped from the squad: Ross Geldenhuys; Siviwe Soyizwapi; Wayne Stevens; Wesley Dunlop

Called up: Grant Kemp

Ross Geldenhuys has been struggling a little with his form, and Grant Kemp has been called up in his place. Kemp has shown a lot of potential in what we have seen of him. There is something there and we feel he deserves the opportunity.

George Whitehead and Wesley Dunlop are both good players, but the feeling was that George was slightly more versatile as he can play both wing and fullback. This versatility was a deciding factor and compliments the squad setup better.
