WP without Ntubeni, Kolbe

Western Province will be without hooker Scarra Ntubeni and fullback Cheslin Kolbe for this Saturday's Currie Cup clash with the Pumas at Newlands.

Ntubeni has a calf muscle injury and could be out of action for three weeks, while Kolbe has bone bruising on his ankle, but should be back in the selection mix next week.

Loosehead prop Steven Kitshoff, who has a minor chest problem, and flank Rynhardt Elstadt, who has been battling with a thigh injury, will face fitness tests later in the week.

In some good news for WP, however, hooker Michael Willemse is over a long-term knee injury and is back at full training along with centre/fullback Jaco Taute (groin injury).
