Cape Town - Griquas coach Hawies Fourie has made several changes to his team as they prepare to face Western Province in a Currie Cup clash at Newlands on Saturday.

Flank Hilton Lobberts is back in the starting team to replace Johan Wessels, after the Springbok was dropped to the bench for last weekend’s clash against the Blue Bulls. 

RJ Liebenberg moves to No 7 flank, with the loose trio completed by Carel Greeff at No 8.

Fourie also made two changes to his front row, with Stephan Kotze coming in at tighthead prop, while Martin Bezuidenhout replaces AJ le Roux at hooker. 

In the backline, Springbok Sevens player Ruhan Nel starts at left wing, while Jonathan Francke replaces Michael van der Spuy in midfield.

Kick-off for Saturday’s clash at Newlands is scheduled for 17:05.
