Cape Town - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has named an unchanged line-up for Saturday's Currie Cup final against the Sharks at Newlands (17:30 kick-off).

Captain Deon Fourie, who injured his neck in their 33-16 semi-final win over the Lions last week, was declared fit to face the Durbanites.

National skipper Jean de Villiers will once again serve as the team’s vice-captain.

De Villiers will start in the No 13 jersey in what will also be his 50th match for Western Province.

Centre Juan de Jongh has been named on the bench, as he was in last week’s semi-final win over the Golden Lions.

“Being at Newlands is fantastic and great, but there are no guarantees,” WP coach Allister Coetzee told the WP Rugby website.

“We have to be even better than last Saturday (in the semifinal) against the Lions. We have to start better and we have to stay in it for 80 minutes. We don’t want to be in a situation in a Final where you take so long to work yourself back and get your dominance back.”

Teams:

Western Province:

15. Gio Aplon, 14. Gerhard van den Heever, 13. Jean de Villiers, 12. Damian de Allende, 11. Cheslin Kolbe, 10. Demetri Catrakilis, 9. Louis Schreuder, 8. Duane Vermeulen, 7. Siya Kolisi, 6. Deon Fourie (captain), 5. De Kock Steenkamp, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Scarra Ntubeni, 1. Steven Kitshoff

Substitutes: 16. Frans Malherbe, 17. Brok Harris, 18. Michael Rhodes, 19. Schalk Burger, 20. Nic Groom, 21. Kurt Coleman, 22. Juan de Jongh

Sharks:

TBA
