Bok boost for WP

Bok duo Juan de Jongh and Bongi Mbonambi are available for Western Province's Currie Cup semi-final against the Blue Bulls this weekend.

Coach John Dobson confirmed on Monday that his WP side has been boosted by the return of De Jongh and Mbonambi, who have been released from the Springbok squad after the completion of the Rugby Championship.

'Juan de Jongh and Bongi Mbonambi will both be available to play for us against the Bulls this weekend,' said Dobson.

It is believed all contracted Springbok players will be unavailable for the Currie Cup playoffs, and those without national contracts will be released to their respective provinces ahead of Saturday's semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Province also received an injury boost before their trip to Pretoria, after Oli Kebble, JD Schickerling, Huw Jones and Dewaldt Duvenage have been declared fit for duty.
