Cape Town - Western Province will be boosted by the return of playmakers Cheslin Kolbe and Seabelo Senatla for their Currie Cup semi-final against the Blue Bulls at Newlands this Saturday.

Kolbe injured his back in WP's 37-23 win over the Pumas in Nelspruit on September 26 which forced him out of their past two encounters, while Senatla was away with the Springbok Sevens side in Australia at the weekend.

Both are expected to be back for Saturday's crucial clash and WP will take heart from the fact that the duo played significant roles in their two wins over the Bulls in the league phase of the competition.

WP beat the Bulls 41-17 at Newlands and also won the return fixture 23-18 at Loftus Versfeld.

In more good news for WP, Jean Kleyn is expected to return from a shoulder injury and start at No 4 lock.

On the negative side, WP won't be able to select speeedster Justin Geduld after he broke his nose while playing for the Blitzbokke at the weekend.
