Late switch to WP team

2012-08-15 12:01

Cape Town - Tiaan Liebenberg's Springbok call-up has necessitated a late change to the Western Province team ahead of Saturday's Absa Currie Cup match against Griquas in Kimberley.

Kick-off is at  14:30.

With Liebenberg having joined the Bok squad as a replacement for the injured Chiliboy Ralepelle, WP captain Deon Fourie has been moved from flank to his regular position of hooker.

Tyrone Holmes has been shifted across to take over Fourie's No 6 jersey, with Canadian Jebb Sinclair promoted from the bench to take up the No 7 position.

Yaya Hartzenberg, who warmed the bench against the Sharks last weekend, will come into the matchday squad in jersey No 19.

    11 Year chokers (and counting). Their supporters' crap attitude regarding injured Bok players will make the inevitable next choke so much more memorable.

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-08-15 13:38

      Of miskien is dit Terence, of Harold? Sal nooit weet nie.

      pomene.stormer - 2012-08-15 14:07

      @Spyker - Jip korrek - Spyker,Harold,Terence,Tarzan,Dr Spies - whoever - die comments bly dieselfde f_ _ _tup eentonige gemors om reaksie uit te lok !!! Minderwaardigheidsgevoel as jy my vra !!!

      dave.short.102 - 2012-08-15 14:12

      Isak- ten eerste is die n artiekel oor WP NIE die SB nie Tweede- As die SB speel, is dit die SB nie WP BB SHRKS EN AL DIE RES NIE. Kry die twee feite in jou kop en ons sal mekaar dalk beter verstaan. As Bismark n drie druk in n SB trui is die hele SA bly nie net die Sharks nie. Is dit n bietjie moeilik om te verstaan?

      melt.esterhuizen - 2012-08-15 15:18

      @Spyker, Ja broer die Stormers is chokers, sleg, kan nie rugby speel nie, onnosel, verdedig...verdedig...verdedig...kan nie driee druk nie bla bla bla maar!!!!!! Het die jaar die Bulle x 2 en die Sharks 1 x , Lions en Cheetas x 2 gewen, so wat maak dit die ander spanne??? Wat noem n mens n span wat deur chokers verneder is??? Blou Bulle?????

      yagyah.rabin - 2012-08-15 13:16

      Blou do you just copy and paste. No wonder Bulls play 70's rugby, nothing original comes from Pretoria.

  • legndkilla - 2012-08-15 12:44

    stormers blue bulls sharks cheetas lions it doesnt matter, what matters is the score on the board at the end of the day, lets put this provincialism in the bin and support our country and the men chosen to represent it, i mite nt agree with the team chosen but at the end of the day im a south african and thats the team i support!!!!!

      nick.mullet.35 - 2012-08-15 14:24

      This is about WP, poephol

  • Byron - 2012-08-15 13:12

    Last I checked the rugby championship is won by points on a table!!! not playoffs.... so more stormers the better...make the springboks stormers and sharks, with hougaard at wing instead of mvovo.... Francois steyn at flyhalf, Whitehead 1st centre, JDV outside centre, lambie fullback, Pienaar flyhalf.... boom sick side... no need for bulls at all really..

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-08-15 13:39

      You take ignorance to a new level.

      nick.mullet.35 - 2012-08-15 14:25

      Byron, wrong thread china. A clue, get it

      Byron - 2012-08-15 14:47

      thanks yoda...not ignorance at but a strong team... lets look at 1-15 1 Jannie 2 Bismark 3 Beast 4 etsebeth 5 Bekker 6 Coetzee 7 Alberts 8 Daniels The forwards really pick themselves with a few combination shifts in the loose trio that are debatble but not really a bulls player that would feel hard done by. 9 Pienaar (looked the better player when he was on and adds calmness) anyway you know the backline that I stated... only fit players have been taken into consideration. So do we really want morne steyn after how crap hes been lately.... come now

  • anton.bischoff - 2012-08-15 15:50

    Nou het Wp n groter kans om dalk te wen.

      frank.williams.100 - 2012-08-15 17:07

      Ja en sonder Spies het die bokke kans om te wen.
