WP lose injured Aplon

2012-09-26 13:49

Cape Town - Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has named his team for Saturday's Absa Currie Cup clash against the Golden Lions at Newlands on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 14:00.

Damian de Allende moves up from the bench and starts in jersey 11, in for the injured Gio Aplon, with Pat Howard in on the bench as cover in jersey 22.

Tyrone Holmes starts at No 7 after serving a one week suspension last week. As a result, Don Armand returns to No 4 lock, with Wilhelm van der Sluys dropping to the bench in jersey 18 and JJ Gagiano falling out of the match 22, after debuting for WP last week.

Coetzee has stuck with the same Under-21 front row combination of Frans Malherbe, Scarra Ntubeni and Steven Kitshoff, that started against Griquas last weekend and has again opted for two props on the bench in Deon Carstens and Brok Harris.

Berton Klaasen provides cover on the bench, in for the injured Gary van Aswegen.

      nico.pretorius.946 - 2012-09-26 14:12

      Currie Cup is already at home ... at home in JHB :)

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-26 14:26

      Nico, sorry to burst your bubble - the cup is permanently kept at Newlands :-)

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-09-26 14:32

      @stirrer, the 'Choking Cup' is not a REAL cup!!! But that one you can keep, you've earned it :):):)

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-26 14:42

      LOL René, it's a fact that the Currie Cup is permanently stored at Newlands - probably because WP is the most successful CC team in history - it only goes to the CC final venue for the presentation, then afterwards returns to its rightful home at Newlands. Fact. No jokes.

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-09-26 14:45

      @stirrer, its probably a safe place to put it, since no one will be looking for it at Newlands :)

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-09-26 14:51

      René, it's the safest place allright, but not for the reason you mentioned. In Johannesburg it will be stolen and sold for scrap, in Pretoria it will be pawned for brannas money, and in Durban the Currie bit will be misunderstood and they will use the cup as a kitchen utensil.

      nico.pretorius.946 - 2012-09-26 14:52

      @Rene, well said, couldn't put it better myself! hahahahaha

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-09-26 15:13

      @stirrer, hahaha, naaw, don't think so, the Currie Cup is not such a rarity at the said venues - it might happen at Newlands, cause most people in CT would not know what it is and would like to pawn it though. (Anyways, I liked your chirp on the Mal-ema thread regarding the woodwork/screw - LoL)

      SO happy to see a WP player injured. So happy, I think I am going to have a braai in honour of the injury. The best news of the week. Injured midget

  • moederstad.wp - 2012-09-26 14:27

    Isak, please these perditions normally bite us in the ass! secondly, De Allend, please he prefer to dance sideways and he is up against Helberg, and proved he cannot defend similar to Barche. Allister had 4 years of building longer than anybody, he must deliver this year or go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • brendon.nel.7 - 2012-09-26 14:29

    Province all the way baby!! But I'd sacrafice the cup with a smile on my face to see the bulls being relegated.

      macziekpk - 2012-09-26 23:41

      I'd sacrifice nothing to see the WP choke, because it is inevitable anyway

  • moederstad.wp - 2012-09-26 14:36

    Brendon, nou praat jy my taal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

      brendon.nel.7 - 2012-09-26 14:41

      Ha ha ha veral daai blou po*s johnny. Sy bek skeur al lankal te wyd.

  • dowwe.duane - 2012-09-26 14:48

    No loss at all

      Stormkaap - 2012-09-26 19:37

      People will say that when you disappear from this site

      macziekpk - 2012-09-26 23:41

      Aplon - running into brickwalls since the winter of 05

      paul.sdoow - 2012-09-27 13:29

      that's the first correct statement doffie has made incorrect in saying no big loss with aplon out cause we got tons more talent which are also first team material .unlike certain provinces that you favour who are at the bottom third of the log and come Sunday absolute bottom of the log who have no replacements worthy of being called a first team player cause you and your gat gabbe blow Jobjonny say we only thrashed your fourth team!

  • spyker.oflanagan - 2012-09-26 14:53

  • deon.fouche.3 - 2012-09-26 15:44

    Lions met 8. Die aap van n Marius Jonker is die ref. Die aap is net so dom soos dowwe en spyker, saam spyker hulle 3 mekaar!

  • lourens.vandervyver.798 - 2012-09-26 15:49

    Iemand wat WP nie nou wou verloor nie. Nie net dat Aplon weer goeie rugby speel nie,maar sy ervaring gaan ook gemis word tussen die jonges. Maar span lyk nogsteeds goed en gan n lekker opwindende ding wees,n WP ding. Nou net wag vir Saterdag

      dowwe.duane - 2012-09-26 22:50

      @dronk isak Because he weighs 45kg, can't tackle, poor under the high ball, got the IQ of a shed tool and the fetal alcohol syndrome maak hom kla. Kla ja
