Cape Town - Western Province look likely to unleash Springbok Sevens star Seabelo Senatla at right wing in their opening Currie Cup encounter.

According to Die Burger, the 21-year-old landed in Cape Town on Tuesday after helping the South African Sevens side claim gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow at the weekend.

Senatla played a few games off the bench for the Stormers in the latter part of their Suepr Rugby campaign and coach Allister Coetzee said Senatla could start in the absence of Gio Aplon, who has left to further his career in France.

"His pace is a huge asset and we saw what he is capable of when there's little bit of space. He is familiar with our structures after playing for us in Super Rugby, so he'll easily fit into the team with a week's training left before the first game."

WP, last season's losing finalists, play the Eastern Province Kings at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on August 8 in the opening match of the Currie Cup.
