Cape Town - Western Province will have to do without injured Springbok tight forwards Andries Bekker and Tiaan Liebenberg in their semi-final against the Lions this weekend.

Bekker injured his right toe in the first half of their victory over the Cheetahs at Newlands on Saturday and will see a specialist this week, but has been ruled out of the Currie Cup semi-final in Johannesburg.

Liebenberg will also miss the match after picking up a knock to his back against the Cheetahs and will also see a specialist to determine the severity of the injury.

Meanwhile, WP coach Allister Coetzee also revealed that veteran scrumhalf Bolla Conradie had joined up at training as emergency back-up to incumbents Nic Groom and Louis Schreuder.
