• Kolbe, Senatla back for WP

    Cheslin Kolbe and Seabelo Senatla will be available for Western Province's semi-final against the Blue Bulls at Newlands on Saturday. 

    Kolbe injured his back in WP's 37-23 win over the Pumas in Nelspruit on 26 September, while Senatla played for the Blitzboks on the Gold Coast this past weekend.

    'Cheslin already started training with us last week and is looking good,' said WP coach Allister Coetzee. 'I didn't see what happened in the sevens but Senatla scored three tries and will also be back in the mix. So luckily both those players played in the two Bulls games in the league phase.'

    In more good news for WP, Jean Kleyn is expected to be back from a shoulder injury and start at No 4 lock. Michael Rhodes could join him in the second row, with Rynhardt Elstadt at blindside flank and Sikhumbuzo Notshe – who had a good game at No 8 against the Sharks – on the bench.
