Cape Town - Springbok prop Vincent Koch will make his 50th appearance for the Pumas when they tackle Western Province in a Currie Cup clash at Newlands on Saturday.

The 25-year-old played two Tests for the Boks this year, as well as a friendly clash against the World XV.

However, he failed to make the Springboks’ final Rugby World Cup squad and was released for Currie Cup duty.

He will face familiar foes at Newlands on Saturday, having featured as a loan player for the Stormers in this year’s Super Rugby competition.

He will return to the Stormers for next year’s Super Rugby season.

Kick-off for Saturday’s clash at Newlands is scheduled for 15:00.
