Western Province head coach Jerome Paarwater has made just one change to the starting lineup to face the Cheetahs in a Currie Cup clash in Cape Town on Friday.
The inclusion of the experienced Ali Vermaak at loosehead prop is the only change to the matchday squad for the Currie Cup encounter, which kicks off at 4:45pm on Friday.
The rest of the team is unchanged from the one that suffered a 45-34 loss to the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria.
Sixth-placed Province are looking for just their second win of the campaign, while the Cheetahs will hope to close the gap on the first-placed Bulls.
Paarwater said that his team are looking forward to playing in front of the fans at Cape Town Stadium again.
“We have got some good continuity in our selection, so hopefully we will see some growth in those combinations.
“It is always great to be playing on our home ground and the team is determined to put on a good display for our fans,” he said.
Western Province – 15 Tristan Leyds, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Cornel Smit, 11 Angelo Davids, 10 Timothy Swiel, 9 Godlen Masimla, 8 Keke Morabe, 7 Marcel Theunissen, 6 Nama Xaba (captain), 5 Connor Evans, 4 Ben-Jason Dixon, 3 Sazi Sandi, 2 JJ Kotze, 1 Ali Vermaak.
