Cape Town - Western Province head coach Allister Coetzee has named his team for Saturday's Currie Cup meeting with the Golden Lions in Johannesburg. Kick-off is at 17:05

Springbok squad members Siya Kolisi (flank) and Juan de Jongh (centre) make a return, with Coetzee making just two changes to the starting line-up that beat Griquas 25-20 last weekend; Jebb Sinclair and JP du Plessis moving to the bench, with Yaya Hartzenberg and Damian de Allende dropping out of the squad.

De Jongh also takes over the vice-captaincy from Marcel Brache, who remains at inside centre, whilst left-wing Ederies Arendse was passed fit after suffering an ankle injury against Griquas.

Deon Fourie will again captain the side from hooker, with Siyabonga 'Scarra' Ntubeni warming the bench after his impressive second-half appearance last weekend.

Joining Ntubeni on the bench is experienced scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage who is back from his week's break and replaces Nic Groom amongst the replacements, with Louis Schreuder getting his second start in a row.
