Cape Town - Tiaan Liebenberg's Springbok call-up has necessitated a late change to the Western Province team ahead of Saturday's Absa Currie Cup match against Griquas in Kimberley.

Kick-off is at  14:30.

With Liebenberg having joined the Bok squad as a replacement for the injured Chiliboy Ralepelle, WP captain Deon Fourie has been moved from flank to his regular position of hooker.

Tyrone Holmes has been shifted across to take over Fourie's No 6 jersey, with Canadian Jebb Sinclair promoted from the bench to take up the No 7 position.

Yaya Hartzenberg, who warmed the bench against the Sharks last weekend, will come into the matchday squad in jersey No 19.
