De Jongh at 13 for WP

Juan de Jongh will start at outside centre for Western Province in this Friday's clash with Griquas in Kimberley.

De Jongh has started the last two Tests for the Boks. Although he was one of the players SA Rugby requested to be rested this week, WP saw the need to draft him straight into the starting lineup for what is a crucial match in their quest for a playoff berth.

Besides the inclusion of De Jongh, fellow Springbok Bongi Mbonambi will also start for Province in a boost to their front row.

Western Province – 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Werner Kok, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Huw Jones, 11 Leolin Zas, 10 Robert du Preez, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Kobus van Dyk, 6 Rynhardt Elstadt, 5 Chris van Zyl (c), 4 Jan de Klerk, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Subs: 16 Mike Willemse, 17 Alistair Vermaak, 18 JP Smith, 19 Dave Ribbans, 20 Jurie van Vuuren, 21 Jano Vermaak, 22 Johnny Kotze.
