Coetzee shuffles WP pack

2012-09-19 13:28

Cape Town - Allister Coetzee, the Western Province head coach, has named his team for Saturday's Absa Currie Cup clash against Griquas at Newlands.

Kick-off is at 15:00.

Coetzee has made seven changes to the starting XV from last week, with Joe Pietersen, Louis Schreuder, Wilhelm van der Sluys, Frans Malherbe and Steven Kitshoff all starting and Gio Aplon and Don Armand switching positions.

In the backline, Pietersen will wear his regular No 15 jersey, after returning from injury against the Sharks last Saturday, with Aplon switching to the left-wing. Schreuder will start at scrumhalf, with Nic Groom dropping down to the bench after starting two matches in a row.

Up front, meanwhile, Springbok squad member Frans Malherbe returns at tighthead in a double front row change; the youngsters (Malherbe and Steven Kitshoff) starting and the experienced duo of Brok Harris and Deon Carstens providing cover via the bench.

Elsewhere in the pack, Don Armand shifts from lock to flank to cover for the suspended Tyrone Holmes at No 7, meaning that DHL WP Under-21 captain Wilhelm van der Sluys will earn his first-ever Absa Currie Cup start for his province at lock.

There are two new faces on the bench this week, flyhalf Gary van Aswegen (in for Kurt Coleman - broken jaw) and loose forward JJ Gagiano, a former Varsity Cup stalwart and a 2011 Rugby World Cup representative for the USA Eagles.

Van Aswegen last featured for WP in the opening match of the season, whilst Gagiano will make his urrie Cup debut should he take to the field on Saturday.

Teams:

Western Province:
15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Gio Aplon, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Jebb Sinclair, 7 Don Armand, 6 Deon Fourie (captain), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Scarra Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff

      Lean - 2012-09-19 15:09

      @Isak Bulls last played in a CC final in 2009 and WON it. Now Isakkie, you answer: When last have WP played in a CC final and won it? (just the answer oubaas se honne, no essays needed)

      jacky.sparrow.58958 - 2012-09-19 15:19

      Visser how many times did you win when the Bulls played.. Remember they didn't play every season...So only the seasons the Bulls played go and compare them then...

      jacky.sparrow.58958 - 2012-09-19 15:32

      Yes and after the BB was created the WP played second fiddle... Sad that you can't see that...

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 15:35

      Hmm, i Didnt even reply to this article, guess somebody trying to hack my account!

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 15:40

      Wait, nm. That is probably maaksiek, or blou. They made an account under my name. If you look closely it comes out different. Mine on facebook is lean.sadie, that one is lean-sadie. And his name shows different on here than mine.

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 15:45

      Reported whoever this is. Representing somebody else, is considered a crime.

      jacky.sparrow.58958 - 2012-09-19 15:46

      lean.sadie i think deon.fouche hacked your account look at the profile pictures...

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 16:00

      Useless idiot. You are the biggest douche the world has ever seen. Have fun while you can. Soon you will see what happens, sometimes it helps to know people in high places.

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 16:16

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 19:33

      you are just a loser.

  • ivan.sport.18 - 2012-09-19 16:06

    Die WP span is gekies, maar hier is n gay oorlog op die forum??? Blou.11cups.johnny...as jy geen kommentaar kan lewer wat op die berig van toepassing is nie, waarom gaan lees jy nie eerder prenteboekies, of kleur in, of iets dergliks? My span is ook die Bulle, maar regtig, jou tipe kommentaar is ongevraagd op die forum. As jy sulke onsinnighede kwytraak, kry jy nie dan terugflitse van jou opvoeding wat jy as kind gehad het nie? Soos visser.isak tereg vra, wanneer laas was die Bulle in n semi? Rugby is net n sport, en die klomp bekgevegte is totaal onnodig. Elk geval, ek hou van die manier hoe AC jong spelers inbring en is glad nie soos Pine Pienaar bang om kanse te waag nie. Selfde gebeur by die Cheetahs ook. Hulle is nie n vreeslike groot unie nie, maar voortdurend hoor jy van n jong speler daar wat die wereld aan die brand speel. Eks jammer om dit te se, maar ek dink by die Bulle is die hele bestuur in n gemaksone wat geskep is deur n paar jaar se sukses op die veld. Die wilde aankoop van spelers sal die toestand eerder versleg as verbeter, en dit werk negatief in op die span.

      jacky.sparrow.58958 - 2012-09-19 16:34

      Ivan 'MaSeHare" Sport ek neem aan jou huis is een suur huis. As Ma vir Pa kyk kry sommer n vuis hou... it's called banter, if you don't want to get involved don't comment on it and don't read it as easy as that. Other than that I agree with you. I think the reason why the BBRU is in the situation they are now was due to HM departure to the Boks. They had to get a man into his place and quick. I think the transition between HM and next man in charge wasn't very smooth or clear which has put the BBRU in a bit of a spin....

      Lean - 2012-09-19 16:46

      @ivan Jou span is nie die Bulle nie, jy't nog niks positief gese oor hulle vandat jy jou stink profile hier aangebring het nie. Dis net WP hier en WP daar, so verdwyn maar hier voor ek jou ore warm klap

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 16:50

      Impersonator and fake account. Special lot you guys are.

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 17:16

      Commenting twice on 2 profiles, wow you are sad aren't you.

      sadie.lean.31 - 2012-09-19 19:09

      @FAKE SADIE Go away you useless idiot. 11yr and crying, sorry counting

      lean.sadie - 2012-09-19 19:33

      you are just a loser.

      ivan.sport.18 - 2012-09-19 20:49

      Lean, as jy klaar jou speelgoed uit jou stootkarretjie gegooi het kan jy maar gaan slaap. Ek het baie goed oor die Bulle wat positief is gese, MAAR ongelukkig vir jou draai die rugby nie om een span nie. Net iemand wie se lewe net uit blou bestaan sal se dat die Bulle die afgelope 2jaar goed gespeel het. Dit help nie jy wil ontken dat daar probleme is nie, en dis wat ons moet aanspreek. As jy kwaad is vir WP en jou mening wil gee, doen dit dan ten minste op n beskaafde manier. Kom daaroor dat die Bulle nie meer is wat hul was nie, en wees verseker dat hulle wel weer n krag sal word. Elke span gaan maar deur n laagtepunt, en kritiek kan hulle net dalk goed doen. Ek dink nie jy is tevrede as jy naweek na naweek sien hoe die Bulle speel nie. Wel ek is ook nie, en daarom gesels ek daaroor. Of jy daarvan hou of nie, ek BLY n Bul :)

  • Eddie.Minora - 2012-09-19 16:07

    so eerder vir Nic Groom in die startup wil gesien het

      sadie.lean.31 - 2012-09-19 20:08

      Nic Groom?! Rook jy grassies jou pateet?

      paul.sdoow - 2012-09-20 07:02

      think we all prefer groom but its only cause of rotation policy not performance based.

  • sean.brady.14224 - 2012-09-19 21:53

    So the internal disciplinary committee figured the best way to punish Sinclair is to start him this week? Makes lots of sense! So next year when Sinclair gets cited, and suspended for weeks for punching somebody in a Super Rugby match who exactly is to blame? I'd say the Union who have just indirectly told him it's okay to punch an opposition player, but only if he pushes you into doing it! Notes for 2013 - a bit of niggle towards Sinclair and Etzebeth; the Stormers are down to 13 men!!!

  • lourens.vandervyver.798 - 2012-09-20 12:20

    Verlede week is geskiedenis en kom ons hoop die jonges het geleer en gebruik die aggresie in n meer positiewe manier en dis op die telbord. Span lyk goed al is daar nog n paar nuwe gesigte nader getrek. Smyt wyd WP! Nou maar net wag vir Saterdag en daai ander ding jou lekker ding...
