Coetzee rewards form players

2011-09-01 14:34

Cape Town - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has rewarded fringe players for their good form by naming them in the starting XV to face Griquas in a Currie Cup match in Kimberley on Saturday.

Loose forward Tertius Daniller and midfielder Marcel Brache were hugely impressive when they played off the bench against the Pumas last week, and Coetzee said both players had earned a place in the run-on side.

"Tertius Daniller had a good game against the Pumas, and deserves an opportunity in the starting side," Coetzee said on Thursday.

"He also offers a good line-out option and that means that Nazeem Carr will play off the bench."

Coetzee said there would be more chances for Carr to stake his claim as the season progressed.

"Brache impressed with his line-breaks against the Pumas and he got the nod ahead of Berton Klaasen, who we also considered after the injury to Tim Whitehead," Coetzee said.

Hooker Deon Fourie was expected to be on the flight to Kimberley but the team doctor believed his nose, which was fractured three weeks ago, needed more time to set sufficiently.

In view of the national team call-ups ahead of the World Cup, as well as a spate of injuries, Province have struggled to field a settled combination, but Coetzee was nevertheless pleased with the results this season.

"We are still striving to get the balance right in the team, in terms of our playing style," said Coetzee.

"There are times when then the kicking game will work for us, while at other times we'll prefer to run the ball up.

"This week we're up against Griquas, and every team in this competition know they are tough in Kimberley. They play a high tempo game as well as a very physical game.

"They pride themselves on the set-pieces and since many of their players are in good form, they're playing with lots of confidence."

Coetzee said his side would need to use their opportunities in search of their third straight win.

"We have not been taking our opportunities in recent games but we will have to be more accurate this week otherwise we'll be punished," he said.

"Griquas are an accurate team and we'll have to respect them."

Province skipper Tiaan Liebenberg said he and his fellow forwards were facing a massive challenge against the hosts.

"We know they're a team that thrives on mauling but we've grown as a pack and we need to be up for the challenge," Liebenberg said.

"They are a formidable side at home, perhaps not so potent on the road.

"It is well-known that they have the best contesting line-out in the Currie Cup and they have many guys in their squad that were formerly from Cape Town, so they know what to expect."

Teams

Western Province: Conrad Jantjes, Danie Poolman, Johann Sadie, Marcel Brache, JJ Engelbrecht, Demetri Catrakilis, Dewaldt Duvenage, Nick Koster, Tertius Daniller, Nick Fenton-Wells, De Kock Steenkamp, Hilton Lobberts, Brok Harris, Tiaan Liebenberg (captain), Steven Kitshoff

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-01 15:27

      @jk Hi shame, i take it you're really not getting a lot of attention. Why don't you remove yourself of your sister and stop the inbreeding scandal a little

      jk - 2011-09-01 15:41

      OZ- daars nie pille vir jou onkunde nie ou swaer...en dis net staat skool wesies wat nie weet wat grey se 2de span genoem word nie...shame

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-01 16:31

      @jk Jy plant nie breine oor nie, doen jy? Wa het ek enigsins iets genoem van nie weet wie Grey se 2de span is nie? Staatskool, nie "staat skool" nie... SHAME

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 23:21

      @Fake Chris in Oz. Talk about attention seeking. You obviously does not get any. And there you go again with the "sister" and "jy plant nie breine oor nie" insults because you do not have a proper argument. It is now about two days and you still have no originality to come up with new insults to entertain us. You're becoming a bit boring now.

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 23:24

      If the Cherries can give Province a go, they must be pretty good this year. If that is indeed true I suppose they will totally demolish the Bulls.

  • andre.ruiters - 2011-09-01 15:33

    Griquas always dangerous at home , Sarel Pretorius the danger man. Hope Province can pull this one off. We need a bonus point try just to get that little edge

      jk - 2011-09-01 15:37

      andre- we will, just believe my brother!!!!!PROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-01 15:39

      @jk Griquas by 15+ Lets get serious here, WP = Jokers of World Rugby

      jk - 2011-09-01 15:43

      lets get serious..? with a name like Chris in oz...please...

      Oukoos - 2011-09-01 16:36

      Chris in OZ "... WP = Jokers of World Rugby". jy's miskien reg. Maar wat maak dit die Blou Bulle na die 35-7 loesing? Die paloekas van die rugbywereld?

      Fasie - 2011-09-01 16:58

      @oukoos En wat van daai keer wat die Bulle 75-14 gewen het?

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 23:28

      @Hasie. Jy onthou ook seker nog die keer wat die Flou Nulle in 'n CC final was. Dis bietjie lank terug vir my om te onthou. Ek onthou die 35-7 loesing en ek onthou hoe die Nulle teen die Pumas en Luiperds geploeter het en naelskraap gewen het (seker met die ref se hulp ook nog) en ek onthou dat die Bulle onder aan die log is. Ek onthou die dinge wat saak maak.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 00:53

      @prowler Jy reken dit was lanklaas wat die Bulle 'n Curriecup gevat het. Nou hoe se jy dan van die WP? Bulle het hom gewen laas in 2009 WP in 2001 Maar ek verstaan, jy sal seer sekerlik reken WP is onlangser

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 00:55

      @prowler O ja, en die WP het glad nie laas naweek geploeter teen die Pumas nie. Dit was 'n totale weghol oorwinning soos nog nooit aanskou is nie. Briljant manne

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 01:00

      @Hasie in Oz. Sukkel jy om te lees? Ek praat van 2011. Ek lewe nie in die verlede soos julle Flou Nulle ondersteuners nie. Word wakker en kyk wat is nou aan die gebeur. Die Koeie is ONDER op die log. En waneer jy wakker word sal jy agterkom dan Nelson Madela uit die tronk is, Amerika het sy eerste swart president en die Berlynse muur is afgebreek.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:05

      @prowler Hel, kyk ek weet almal is nie ewe geslaan met die IK nie, maar goeie ouers, kan jy asemhaal sonder hulp? Ek praat van laas naweek, 5 dae terug, toe julle m@er amper (en moes, dankie ref) teen die Pumas verloor het. Julle het ook nog ZERO gewen in 2011

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:05

      @Fake Chris in Oz. Jy's bietjie stadig vanoggend. Wat's fout. Babalaas? Of het mamma jou oe weer toegeklap laasnag? Waneer gaan jy wakkerskrik en agterkom ek het 'n nuwe avatar om te steel. Jy wil darem tog so graag soos ek wees. Ek is seker jou hero.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:33

      Hey suurstof-dief!! Jy maak jou naam GAT. Hoe onoorspronklik kan mens wees!!! So nou dat Prowler onder jou vel ingekruip het, steel jy sy naam. Eers Oukoos, toe Chris in Oz, nou Prowler. Is alle Blou Bul ondersteuners so onnosel en onoorspronklik soos jy?

      Kleinboet - 2011-09-02 11:42

      Ek gaan nou afteken. Lyk my hierdie gesplete persoonlikheid ding is aansteeklik! (Gelukkig moet jy 'n sekere soort persoonlikheid hĂȘ -lees 'Blou Bul' -om dit beslis te kry! Sorry, Oukoos, maar jy het te veel met die vyand gesels en daarom het jy dit blykbaar ook opgedoen.) Altyd interessant om te sien hoe gesels die siekes met hulleself!

  • Tiger - 2011-09-01 16:11

    Chris in Oz I think your mommy will give Grey's second team a go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-01 16:15

      And you could be the product

      jk - 2011-09-01 16:19

      tiger- oz is not the sharpest...PROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVINCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-01 16:37

      @jk Artificial Intelligence is no match for natural stupidity

      Tiger - 2011-09-01 16:39

      Chris I could but you are

      Shistirrer - 2011-09-01 16:51

      Tiger, I believe she already did. Twice.

  • Fasie - 2011-09-01 18:01

    I really wanted a good laugh tonight and was wondering if i should get a Leon Schuster or Casper de Vries. I decided to rather watch WP's last 10 years of CurrieCup, Vodacom and Super attempts. I was rolling down the isle later on. VERY VERY VERY FUNNY!!!

      Tiger - 2011-09-01 18:29

      Weet jy wat is vir my snaaks??? Die feit dat jy dit record en gehou het!!!! Wat die hart van vol is....................................

      Fasie - 2011-09-01 18:41

      @tiger Why not keep it. It makes for a very good laugh. We should take it to a hollywood producer to make the whole world laugh

      Tiger - 2011-09-01 20:16

      Dan hoef jy net 'n foto van jou skaamdeeltjie te stuur.

      Fasie - 2011-09-01 20:38

      @Tiger Nee, daai's nie 'n grap nie Tiger. Dis een van die sewe wonders van die wereld.

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 23:32

      @Hasie. So tonight when you want to cry a little bit, you will watch a Bulls game? I'm just glad the WP could give you so much pleasure. It sure gives me pleasure to see them win the CC 5 years in a row when I also watch some old reruns like you did. Die sewe wonders van die wereld? Soos in "Ek wonder waar is hy. Ek kan hom nie sien nie."

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 00:57

      @prowler O, jy't gesien hoe die WP hom 5jr in 'n ry wen. Hel, hoe oud is jy? 108?

  • Kleinboet - 2011-09-01 20:29

    I like this WP team. Young, inexperienced and not yet 'gelled' into a team, but so full of talent it is burstring out all over the place! Just what we need to give Griquas an uphill battle! Go, WP, go!

  • Northern Stormer - 2011-09-01 22:28

    Dis n goeie ding dat die Bulls manne maar hier uithelp met comments want News24 mors nie meer hulle tyd met berigte oor die Bulls nie - laat hulle maar begewe manne hulle sal self weet wanneer dit tyd is om te gaan !!!

      Fasie - 2011-09-01 22:35

      my f@k Northern Stormer hoe vlak is jy nie. Daar is 3 berigte oor die bulls as we speak. Punt 2, is die hoeveelheid News24 berigte 'n direkte korellasie met span prestasie? Hel jy maak jou naam g@t nou ou bees

      Prowler - 2011-09-01 23:38

      @Fasie. I get the feeling you are now the long lost third braincell of Chris in Oz. You're starting to sound very much like him, "ou bees". But then, all Blue Bull supporters sound similarly retarded. Or is Fasie just another identity you stole due to your lack of originality?

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 00:34

      @prowler It depends on which voice talks to me in the morning when I wake up

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 00:39

      You should tell all those voices to shut up, because there's not one intelligent voice amongst them.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 00:58

      @prowler I know, I know. They nearly as thick as Duane Vermeulen, but then again, no one else but Duane has a negative IQ

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 01:09

      Shame. Het Duane jou nog steeds nie gebel nie. Jou hartjie moet nou al aan flarde wees. Jy moet hom maar los en jou liefde verklaar aan een van die Flou Nulle. Een van hulle sal jou heel waarskynlik terugbel.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:11

      Ja ek oorweeg eerder Spies nou, Duane is weird wanneer hy met handgebare kommunikeer

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 01:14

      Ja toe gaan le lepel met Spies, dan kan jy hom hopelik oorreedom om uit die Bokspan te bly. Alhoewel ek nie dink hy sal vreeslik impressed wees met jou 7de "Wonder aar is hy" equipment nie.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:17

      @prowler Is jy 'n mof?

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 01:22

      Nee jou liefde vir Duane laat my dink jy is.

  • Kuppy - 2011-09-01 22:56

    Province to win if Earl Rose plays, by 18.

      Prowler - 2011-09-02 01:25

      Realisties dink ek die Bulle sal weer soos altyd deurkom en die koppie vat

      Chris in Oz - 2011-09-02 01:35

      Jy is darem maar onnosel. No brain, no life.

      Oukoos - 2011-09-02 08:28

      PROWLER Jy is 100% reg - die Bulle gaan weer die koppie vat - in 2213

  • Griqua - 2011-09-02 13:49

    It is nice to see how much comments is given for this article. A "Griqua" article did not get much attention way back when. Something must spark this debate. A fear of losing! Go Griquas!!!!!!!!!
