PREVIEW: Currie Cup, Round Three

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 05:38

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Four of the six teams taking to the field in the Currie Cup Premier Division will kick off a challenging stretch in the competition in which they will play three matches within eight days.

In an exciting weekend's action, the Sharks will meet Griquas at Kings Park on Friday, while Western Province take on the Pumas at Newlands and the Blue Bulls host the Golden Lions at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. 

Log-leaders and defending champions, the Free State Cheetahs, have a bye.

Friday, August 4

Sharks v Griquas
(Kings Park, Durban - Kick-off: 19.00; 17.00)

In Durban, the Sharks will look to build on their first victory of the season when they meet the Griquas, but with two defeats in a row to their name, the Kimberley side will be equally determined to register a victory.
 
The KwaZulu-Natalians boast a good win record against Griquas in the last two seasons as they won three of the four matches between the sides. However, the visitors registered a narrow three-point victory at Kings Park in 2014, which will inspire them.
 
While the Sharks opted for continuity in selection with only two changes to their side which sees lock Tyler Paul replace the injured Hyron Andrews (shoulder) and flank Jacques Vermeulen take over from Jean-Luc du Preez, who has been rested, the Griquas made nine personnel changes to their starting team. 

A backline reshuffle will see George Whitehead start at fullback and Andre Swarts at flyhalf in a halfback combination with scrumhalf Rudi van Rooyen.

"I was happy with the effort from the team to bounce back after a frustrating first half against the Pumas and the fact that we managed to stop them from scoring was even more pleasing," said Sharks head coach  Robert du Preez on his side's 29-0 win over the Pumas last week.

"It is important to carry that momentum into this match and for the players to perform before we head on the road for two tough away matches.

"The Griquas are a good team and are always competitive. We know what we can expect on Friday."

After coming close to winning on two occasions now, Griquas head coach Peter Engledow has pinpointed a few areas where his side need to improve.

"We have done reasonably well with regards to our attack and scoring tries," Engledow told rugby365.

"I think we scored 11 tries. Unfortunately, we conceded 14 in the first two games. So. it's our defence and weak moments in defence and then also our kick chase - teams have counter-attacked against us pretty well and again they have broken our line there.

"There is a lot of good positive things happening, but we have to look at our defence and we have to make sure that we play in the right areas of the field and stop them from attacking us and scoring against us."

Recent results: 
2016: Sharks won 46-24, Durban
2015: Sharks won 45-20, Kimberley
2014: Griquas won 21-18, Durban

Prediction: The Sharks are at home again and they have a lot of continuity in terms of selection. The Sharks will win by 15 points.

Teams:

Sharks: 15 Garth April, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Jeremy Ward, 12 Lukhanyo Am, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Michael Claassens, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Jacques Vermeulen, 6 Keegan Daniel, 5 Ruan Botha (captain), 4 Tyler Paul, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Mahlatse Ralepelle, 1 Thomas du Toit.
Replacements: 16 Franco Marais, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Jean Droste, 20 Lubabalo Mtembu, 21 Cameron Wright, 22 Inny-Christian Radebe.

Griquas: 15 George Whitehead, 14 Ederies Arendse, 13 Tertius Kruger, 12 Jonathan Francke, 11 Adriaan Coertzen (captain), 10 Andre Swarts, 9 Rudi van Rooyen, 8 Jonathan Janse van Rensburg, 7 Shaun McDonald, 6 RJ Liebenberg, 5 Pieter Janse van Vuren, 4 Mzwanele Zito, 3 Ewald van der Westhuizen, 2 Abraham le Roux, 1 Devon Martinus.

Saturday, August 5:

Western Province v Pumas
(Newlands, Cape Town - Kick-off: 13.00; 11.00 GMT)

Western Province and the Pumas will both look to bounce back from defeats last week when they meet at Newlands, with the hosts hunting their first victory of the season after a bye in the opening round.
 
The Capetonians have won all three matches between the sides in the last three seasons, but the Mpumalanga side put up a decent fight in two of those outings, which they will draw comfort from. They will, however, have to step up their attack after finishing their match against the Sharks last week scoreless.
 
Stormers flyhalf Damian Willemse will make his Currie Cup debut alongside a number of his Super Rugby teammates, including centre EW Viljoen, No.8 Nizaam Carr, hooker Bongi Mbonambi and replacement prop Jacobus Janse van Rensburg in a team that shows seven staff changes. 

Replacement lock Michael Kumbirai also stands to make his debut if he runs onto the field.
 
Experienced Pumas flanker Brian Shabangu, meanwhile, has been handed the captaincy in a new-look team, which features several players who will make their debut for the Mpumalanga side. They are lock Cameron Lindsay and flank Stefan Willemse, who are new recruits from the EP Kings, No.8 Willie Engelbrecht and flyhalf Kobus Marais. 

Replacement scrumhalf Theo Maree and flank Chris Cloete will also make their debuts if they take to the field.
 
The match will also be significant for prop De-Jay Terblanche, as it will mark his 165th game for the Pumas, making him the Union's second most capped player.

"It is a very important game," said Western Province assistant coach Dawie Snyman. "You can't afford to slip in this competition.

"Obviously after the weekend we need to get going as a team and we need to perform. We will use this as an opportunity to get our game going and get everything right that we thought wasn't good over the weekend against the Free State. 

"I wouldn't say the Pumas is a small Union in terms of what they bring. They will be very physical. They are well-coached and they can put you under pressure if you are not 100 percent on your game and they have had time to prepare."

Recent results:
2016: Western Province won 31-23, Cape Town
2015: Western Province won 50-19, Cape Town
2014: Western Province won 37-23, Nelspruit

Prediction: Western Province look a lot stronger on paper, but it will still be a hard game. Province will win by 14 points. 

Teams: 

Western Province: 15 Sarel Marais, 14 Dillyn Leyds, 13 EW Viljoen, 12 Dan Kriel, 11 Seabelo Senatla, 10 Damian Willemse, 9 Justin Phillips, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Kobus van Dyk, 6 Stephan de Wit, 5 John Shickerling, 4 Chris van Zyl (captain), 3 Frans van Wyk, 2 Mbongeni Mbonambi, 1 Alistair Vermaak.
Replacements: 16 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17 Jacobus Janse van Rensburg, 18 Michael Kumbirai, 19 Johan du Toit, 20 Jaco Coetzee, 21 Jano Vermaak, 22 Michal Hazner.

Pumas: 15 Devon Williams, 14 Jean-Paul Lewis, 13 Gerrit Smith, 12 Sias Ebersohn, 11 Ruwellyn Isbell, 10 Kobus Marais, 9 Reynier van Rooyen, 8 Willie Engelbrecht, 7 Stefan Willemse, 6 Brian Shabangu (captain), 5 Cameron Lindsay, 4 Stephan Greeff, 3 Jacques Kotze, 2 Mark Pretorius, 1 De-Jay Terblanche.
Replacements: 16 Frank Herne, 17 Louis Albertse, 18 Jannie Stander, 19 Chris Cloete, 20 Theo Maree, 21 Justin van Staden, 22 Jerome Pretorius.

Blue Bulls v Golden Lions
(Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria - Kick-off: 19.00; 17.00 GMT)

In Pretoria, the Gauteng derby between the Blue Bulls and Golden Lions is expected to be exciting given the balanced results between the sides in the last few seasons. 

Each of the teams have won two of their last four encounters, with both the Blue Bulls' victories being at home.
 
The hosts come off a bye last week after a victory in the opening round, while the Golden Lions recovered from their first-round defeat to beat Griquas last week, meaning both sides will enter the match with confidence.
 
Blue Bulls wing Kefenste Mahlo and replacement hooker Johan Grobbelaar and prop Matthys Bason will make their debuts, along with flyhalf Tony Jantjies, who has played Super Rugby. 

In total coach Nollis Marais made five personnel changes to his starting team, two of which were injury enforced as Jaco Visagie and Conrad van Vuuren are injured.
 
The Golden Lions also made six changes to their team, which sees hooker Michael Willemse, prop Andrew Beerwinkel, flanker Fabian Booysen and centre Nicolaas Hannekom being promoted from the bench to the starting team.

Bulls coach Marais admitted that they want to cash in on the momentum gained in Kimberley.

"We played well against a very competent opponent and at a tough venue to win. That was pleasing, to say the least. One of the things we are looking for in this campaign is consistency and improvement in our play. So, if we can keep the good things we showed in Kimberley and improve on the weaker areas, we will be on the right track," Marais said.

Bulls captain Johannes Prinsloo added: "We are facing a very able opponent. Forget the fact that they are without a number of star players, they will come here to beat us and are good enough to do that if we don't pitch.
 
"We did prepare well though, and there is something special developing in this squad. We are getting amazing input from the coaching staff as well, so I cannot wait for us to go out there and test our new approach."

Recent results:
2016: Blue Bulls won 31-17, Pretoria
2015: Golden Lions won 36-28, Pretoria
2014: Blue Bulls won 36-26, Pretoria

Prediction: The Blue Bulls are a more experienced and settled side and they should win by 10 points or less.

Teams:

Blue Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Franco Naude, 12 Burger Odendaal, 11 Kefentse Mahlo, 10 Tony Jantjies, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Nic de Jager, 7 Jannes Kirsten, 6 Johannes Prinsloo (captain), 5 Ruben van Heerden, 4 Irne Herbst, 3 John-Roy Jenkinson, 2 Jan-Henning Campher, 1 Pierre Schoeman. 
Replacements: 16 Johan Grobbelaar, 17 Matthys Basson, 18 Abongile Nonkontwana, 19 Shaun Adendorff, 20 Andre Warner, 21 Tinus de Beer, 22 JT Jackson.

Golden Lions: 15 Ashlon Davids, 14 Madosha Tambwe, 13 Nicolaas Hanekom, 12 Jarryd Sage, 11 Aphiwe Dyantyi, 10 Shaun Reynolds, 9 Marco Janse van Vuren, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Fabian Booysen, 6 James Venter, 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Rhyno Herbst, 3 Andrew Beerwinkel, 2 Michael Willemse, 1 Sithembiso Sithole.

Blue Bulls hammer Golden Lions

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 17:00

MATCH REPORT: The Blue Bulls ran in eight tries to beat the Golden Lions 54-22 in their Currie Cup Round Three clash at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

It was the Bulls' second win in this year's tournament. They beat Griquas in Round One before enjoying a bye in Round Two.

The Golden Lions managed to walk away with a bonus point for scoring four tries at Loftus.

The Bulls started the game like men possessed and found themselves leading 21-0 after 11 minutes. Tries from Piet van Zyl, Ruben van Heerden and Tony Jantjies, who converted all three, put the Bulls in a comfortable position.

The Lions finally found their feet 10 minutes later and they were rewarded for some good phase play when wing Aphiwe Dyantyi went over in the corner for a try in the 23rd minute. Shaun Reynolds could not convert.

The visitors were also helped by the Bulls being reduced to 14 men before Dyantyi's try when Irne Herbst was sent to the sin bin for collapsing a Lions' maul in his own 22.

The Bulls' discipline did not improve after that when hooker Jan-Henning Campher joined Herbst in the sin-bin when he was yellow carded for the same infringement in the 28th minute.

Playing with only six forwards the Bulls could not stop a powerful driving maul by the Lions in the strike zone with Andrew Beerwinkel scoring the Lions' second try, which went unconverted.

The Lions were keen to take advantage of their extra men on the field and they did just that when Dyantyi stretched over for his second try in the 32nd minute after a sustained attack in the Bulls half. Again, Reynolds could not convert the try.

However, it was the Bulls who had the final say in the first half when centre Burger Odendaal burst through the Lions' defence from close range from a scrum to score his side's bonus-point try.

Jantjies added the extras and the Blue Bulls had a 28-15 lead at half-time.

The Bulls continued to look the better team with ball in hand in the second half and the Pretoria side increased their lead in the 51st minute when captain Johannes Prinsloo was put into space in the Lions' 22 to go over in the corner for his side's fifth try. For the first time in the game, Jantjies could not convert.

However, it did not take long for the Lions hit back with a try of their own. After some swift handing inside the Bulls' half, centre Nicolaas Hanekom went through a gap to score his side's bonus-point try. Reynolds converted and the Lions were only 11 points behind going into the final 25 minutes.

The Lions were then given another glimmer of hope when the Blue Bulls picked up another yellow card, this time for wing Kefentse Mahlo who tackled an opponent in the air in the 66th minute.

Instead, it was the Bulls who scored next after Lions wing Madosha Tambwe failed to deal with a Warrick Gelant grubber kick with Travis Ismaiel scooping up the loose ball to run in for the try. Jantjies converted to put his side 18 points ahead.

Gelant then gave the Lions more misery the 72nd minute when he got his name on the scoresheet with a try as well before replacement JT Jackson added the extra two points for a 25-point lead.

The game was then put to bed in the 79th minute when prop Pierre Schoeman capped off a brilliant performance with a try of his own, which Tinus de Beer converted.

Man of the match: Ruben van Heerden had a strong performance for the Bulls, while Tony Jantjies gave a good showing on attack. However, the award goes to Blue Bulls prop Pierre Schoeman for his overall work rate. He was immense in the physical stuff.  

The scorers:

For Blue Bulls:
Tries: Van Zyl, Van Heerden, Jantjies, Odendaal, Prinsloo, Ismaiel, Gelant, Schoeman
Cons: Jantjies 5, Jackson, De Beer

For Golden Lions:
