Griquas were encouraged by a fighting performance against the Golden Lions ahead of their promotion/relegation play-offs with the Pumas.

The Kimberley side might have gone down 35-28 at Ellis Park on Saturday, but it was one of the performances of the season from a side that reflected 12 changes from the week before.

Coach Pote Human said his players put their bodies on the line in a match where they had nothing to lose.

The Pumas finished an impressive run in the national First Division going unbeaten in that competition to claim the title.

“The Pumas are a good side. They are unbeaten in their division, so they will come out and they want to play Currie Cup Premier Division,” Human said.

“But if we can put up the same performance and bring in some players that I rested this week, I really look forward to the challenge.”

Human rested Springbok winger Willie le Roux, Howard Mnisi, Steph Roberts, Ryno Barnes, Marnus Schoeman, Marnus Hugo and Francois Brummer for the match against the Lions.

Griquas will host the Pumas in Kimberley on Friday with the return match set for Nelspruit a week later.
