Louis Schreuder is back at scrumhalf for Western Province for Saturday's top-of-the-table Currie Cup clash against the Sharks at Newlands.

Louis Schreuder is back at scrumhalf for Western Province in the only change to the defending champions' line-up for Saturday's top-of-the-table Currie Cup clash against the Sharks at Newlands.

Regular vice-captain Schreuder replaces Nic Groom in the No.9 shirt, with the latter dropping to the bench after last week's thrilling 31-all draw against the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.

Schreuder will partner Kurt Coleman at halfback, with fit-again flyhalf Gary van Aswegen replacing WP Under-21 star Tim Swiel on the bench in the only other change to the Province matchday squad.

Whilst Province are the only unbeaten team in the 2013 Currie Cup competition, the Sharks currently top the log with 14 points from four matches, followed by the FS Cheetahs and WP on 12 points apiece.

"It's going to be another tough game [for us]," WP coach Allister Coetzee said.

"Although it's a home game for us the Sharks will play with a lot of confidence. We certainly have our work cut out for us [this weekend]."

Western Province: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Cheslin Kolbe, 10 Kurt Coleman, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Rynhardt Elstadt, 6 Deon Fourie (captain), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Michael Rhodes, 3 Pat Cilliers, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
