• Willemse starts at flank for WP

    Stefan Willemse will make his first start for Western Province in Saturday's Currie Cup clash with the Sharks at Newlands.

    The only other changes come in the backline as Robert du Preez starts at flyhalf and Johnny Kotze comes in at outside centre, with Huw Jones moving across to inside centre.

    Western Province – 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Werner Kok, 13 Johnny Kotze, 12 Huw Jones, 11 Leolin Zas, 10 Robert du Preez, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 7 Kobus van Dyk, 6 Stefan Willemse, 5 Chris van Zyl (c), 4 JD Schickerling, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Scarra Ntubeni, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
