Johannesburg - In the Absa Currie Cup First Division, the Boland Cavaliers and the EP Kings will be looking to build on their victories from the first round when they hit the road for the first time this season. Both games are on Friday.

Welkom is the destination for Boland, where they face the Griffons. The team from the Cape winelands lost badly on their last visit to the Free State's Gold Fields (52-13), a result they would like to turn around this season.

The Griffons lost their opening game this season when the Valke beat them 38-27 in Kempton Park last weekend, but any team visiting the Northern Free State will tell confess that it's one of the more difficult venues to play at.

Boland thrashed Border 69-12 in Wellington last weekend.

The only other game in the Absa Currie Cup First Division this weekend is the Eastern Cape derby between the Border Bulldogs and the EP Kings in East London.

The Kings beat the Bulldogs twice last season and will probably go into the game as favourites after their 28-20 victory last weekend over the SWD Eagles in PE.
