Cape Town - Western Province have been boosted by the inclusion of scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage in the starting line-up for their Absa Currie Cup clash against the Leopards at Olën Park in Potchefstroom on Friday night.

Duvenage has sufficiently recovered from a leg injury, which ruled him out of the last few weeks of the Stormers' Super Rugby campaign, as well as their first Currie Cup clash against Griquas at Newlands.

He replaces Louis Schreuder - who moves down to the bench - at No 9, while Nick Groom drops out of the match-day 22.

Demetri Catrakilis replaces the injured Gary van Aswegen at flyhalf, while Isma-eel Dollie moves onto the bench as flyhalf cover.

Deon Fourie has retained the captaincy in the absence of the injured Duane Vermeulen. Duvenage will be the vice-captain.



Western Province:

15 Conrad Jantjes 14 Danie Poolman 13 Johann Sadie 12 Tim Whitehead 11 JJ Engelbrecht 10 Demetri Catrakilis 9 Dewaldt Duvenage 8 Nick Koster 7 Siya Kolisi 6 Rohan Kitshoff 5 De Kock Steenkamp 4 Hilton Lobberts 3 Brok Harris 2 Deon Fourie (C) 1 Wicus Blaauw

Substitutes: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg 17 Frans Malherbe 18 Adriaan Fondse 19 Nicholas Fenton-Wells 20 Louis Schreuder 21 Isma-eel Dollie 22 Marcel Brache
