• Griquas keep winning formula

    Griquas coach Hawies Fourie has named an unchanged team for the match against the Pumas in Kimberley on Saturday.

    Fourie has kept faith in the side that claimed a dramatic last-minute victory over the Sharks at the weekend, with flyhalf Francois Brummer retaining the captaincy.

    Griquas will be looking to avenge their 33-15 defeat in Nelspruit earlier this season when they take on the high-flying Pumas on their home turf.

    It was Griquas who secured a narrow 21-19 victory the last time these two met in Kimberley, in the first leg of last year's promotion-relegation match.

    Griquas – 15 Gouws Prinsloo, 14 Ederies Arendse, 13 Jonathan Francke, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 PJ Vermeulen, 10 Francois Brummer (c), 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Ruaan Lerm, 7 Carel Greeff, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Jaco Nepgen, 4 Hilton Lobberts, 3 Ewald Van Der Westhuizen, 2 Martin Bezuidenhout, 1 Steph Roberts.
    Subs: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Maks van Dyk, 18 Hugo Kloppers, 19 Burger Schoeman, 20 RJ Liebenberg, 21 Abrie Griesel, 22 Dean Grant.
