WP unscathed after solid win

2012-09-23 22:04

Cape Town - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has reported no major injuries after their impressive 45-21 Currie Cup win over Griquas.

WP won in convincing fashion against a Griquas team which came to Cape Town full of confidence on the back of three successive wins.

Coetzee on Sunday said a few players suffered "bumps and bruises" but everyone that played on Saturday will be up for selection this coming weekend when they host the table-topping Golden Lions.

In other injury news, No 8 Nick Koster (knee) will make his full return to training this week, while flanker Rynhardt Elstadt (rib) will be re-assessed on Monday and could be available for selection a week earlier than initially anticipated.

Also, flanker Tyrone Holmes is back from his one-week suspension and will be available for selection again.

Coetzee said they will have a low-key start to their preparation for Saturday's big game.

"There will be no field training tomorrow at the HPC (High Performance Centre), the guys will do analysis on their own and we will start our field training on Tuesday. We all know that it's been a long season, and it's certainly not over yet, so we need to manage the guys - a lot of whom are young and have had a tough workload in recent weeks.

"I was really happy with the effort against Griquas but we know that the Lions will be a different proposition for us - as they showed against the Sharks last night."

The clash against the Lions at Newlands kicks off at 14:00 on Saturday.

    Solid wins only make for more solid chokes.

      ...Champion Chokers.... .....11 years... .....and counting..

      That stupid penalty that Deon Fourie conceded in the previous game against the Lions is coming back to haunt WP. If it was not for that Province would have been second on the log, trailing the Lions by 1 - I think WP choke, because they like to put themselves under pressure to show that they can handle it, but one can handle only so much. Allister Coetzee, your thoughts on this?

      WP is going to lose all their remaining games and will lose to the EP Kings and be relegated to the B section. Jurie Roux put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!!

      Liewe moer ou Johnny, hoop nie daai stelling is op jou gemik nie. Sjoe. In dien so, wil ek dan ook'n stertjie aanlas as ek mag om so persoonlik te raak.... Maar nietemin, sy vrou en sy dogter se dieselfde kitty ook. Natuurlik opgebruik....

  • nkwe.mahlanghu - 2012-09-24 09:17

    What's the difference between WP and a person that chokes? A person choking can be saved by doing the Heimlich, WP can't they will choke in any case!!!!!

      bielie.vanzyl - 2012-09-24 23:54

      Sorry, ou "Nkwe", I take back that remark above about you being funny. It seems that you're just stupid.

  • nkwe.mahlanghu - 2012-09-24 09:28

    What's so solid about 2 off-side intercept tries, two forward pass tries and one knock-on try? Lions B will win WP this weekend.

      eden.vanderwiel - 2012-09-24 12:20

      Nkwe I watched the wp game over and over again to see the 2 offside tries.. Jys seker dik gerook gewees when you watched the game and the knock on, well that could go either way it was side ways if it was your team you shoul of said it was a try !

      dowwe.duane - 2012-09-24 19:27

      @eden Now take your 11yr mud covered biast glasses off and you'll see the mile WP was off-side on both intercept tries, the knock before that hooker with an @ss bigger than a grain fed mule scored his try and the 2-3m forward pass. But nothing new, the Stormers won 7 games with ref assistance in the Super-15

      eden.vanderwiel - 2012-09-24 22:08

      HAHA DOWWE MOF jy maak my lekker lag.. Jy is 'n joke vir SA! Gaan support vir Orlando Pirates almal sal meer gelukig wees totens die blou bulle sal beter voel om te hoor hulle verloor jou " goeie ondersteuning"

  • dowwe.duane - 2012-09-24 15:25

    The only thing that was "solid" was the ref who solidly refused to let Griquas in the game. What a joke it was!

      Amanda - 2012-09-24 17:14

      You are right, you are a joke. Troll with no brains.

      welcome.koli - 2012-09-24 17:15

      Amanda - 2012-09-24 23:50

      You call that little thing between your legs a sword? Almost like you think you have a brain cell too? Delusional, and it shows with all your useless comments. Poor little boy, mommy didn't love you much, so now you want attention. Siestog

      dowwe.duane - 2012-09-25 00:33

      Sorry for insulting you Amanda, I guess nothing under a 1.5L Coke bottle is "big" for you. The amount of time WP has gone cupless in years will roughly describe me in inches

  • moederstad.wp - 2012-09-24 20:48

    Thanks to Blou Johnny and Dowwe Dolla, atleast they create a good old laugh to the site

      dowwe.duane - 2012-09-24 20:53

      Thanks moederstad, i mean 11yr cupless is tragic, so let's try and see some humour in it

      blou.johnny - 2012-09-24 22:50

      ...11 years cupless...!! ......ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ..!!

      bielie.vanzyl - 2012-09-25 00:04

      Nie rerig nie moederstad.wp, maar shame, dis al wat hulle het. Really sad if that's as good as your life gets.

      dowwe.duane - 2012-09-25 00:32

      Moenie worry nie ou Bielie, ek kry oneindig plesier elke jaar as die WP nie die koppie wen nie. Oneindig. Ek drink seker elke keer as hulle faal een van my R1000 Merlots uit. Ten minste

  • moederstad.wp - 2012-09-24 20:49

    Nkwe please dont wake-up !!!!!!!!!!!!
