Late change to WP bench

2012-08-10 16:20

Johannesburg - Western Province on Friday were forced into making a late change to their replacements' bench for Saturday's Currie Cup clash against the Sharks at Newlands.

Prop JC Kritzinger picked up an ankle injury at training earlier this week which is more serious than initially suspected and is replaced by Yaya Hartzenberg.

Kritzinger will be out for 12 weeks, which is a blow to WP's front-row resources ahead of the Currie Cup season.

Kritzinger has battled back from two serious knee injuries in the last three seasons which have limited his appearances for the Stormers WP --46 matches across all competitions between 2008 and 2011.

WP team: Joe Pietersen, Gerhard van den Heever, JP du Plessis, Marcel Brache, Gio Aplon, Burton Francis, Dewaldt Duvenage, Jebb Sinclair, Tyrone Holmes, Deon Fourie (captain), De Kock Steenkamp, Don Armand, Frans Malherbe, Tiaan Liebenberg, Deon Carstens.

Replacements: Siyabonga Ntubeni, Brok Harris, Wilhelm van der Sluys, Yaya Hartzenberg, Louis Schreuder, Gary van Aswegen, Damian de Allende.

      I can`t believe AC is still WP/Stormers coach !! Western Province politics !!

      sean.lambie.3 - 2012-08-11 00:41

      @daspoort.vandaspoort - They have nothing to show for it for the last 11 years ?? They always seem to win all the cups after they win a game . Famous old saying ``hierdie is ons jaar`` ! LOL !! Looks like the supporters learnt from the coach , big talk , no action !!

    I'm sure Cam Belt Koekemoer from Parrow or Spaarwiel Speckman from Bontheheuwel are available.

      bfvillet - 2012-08-10 17:31

      cambelt and spaarwiel have both been bought by the bulls and now live in danvill

      bernard.mackenzie.5 - 2012-08-10 17:44

    Wow, didn't know there was any replacements left. I've never seen so many injuries in one season. Jammer die bestuur kry nie 'n paar beserings nie, dink hulle moet sommer gou vervang word.
