Cape Town - Griquas have named their side for what is a must-win Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls on Saturday.

The match takes place in Kimberley and kick-off is at 14:15.

Griquas find themselves bottom of the log currently with one point from two losses, having gone down 42-19 to the Pumas in Nelspruit on the opening weekend and then 62-41 to the Golden Lions in Johannesburg. 

This is their first home match of the campaign and, if they are to make a play for the tournament semi-finals in what is a shortened season, they will need a victory on Saturday. 

The Blue Bulls, meanwhile, have won one and lost two, making a win equally crucial for them.
