At the start of the Currie Cup season these 2 teams were definitely the favorites to win the competition given their excellent form in the Super Rugby. But the Currie Cup is a whole different breed and it seems to be an equalizer for the big name franchises. Both these teams find themselves in the bottom half of the log but nevertheless this will be a firecracker. The Western Province come off an impressive win over the Blue Bulls in their last outing and the Lions clenched a nail biter win over the Griquas which will give them confidence for this epic clash.

welcome to Newlands, Cape Town, where the Western Province will take on the Golden Lions in this Currie Cup fixture.

PREVIEW: Currie Cup, Round Six

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 05:58

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Four of the five Springbok squad members released for Currie Cup duty this weekend will take to the field for their respective provinces in a timely boost as the sides look to build momentum in the competition.

Blue Bulls fullback Warrick Gelant, Western Province wing Dillyn Leyds, and the Free State Cheetahs duo of Francois Venter (centre) and Teboho Mohoje (flank) have all been handed starts as the Currie Cup enters the sixth round.
In a full weekend of action, Western Province will host the Golden Lions in Cape Town on Friday, the Free State Cheetahs will take on the Blue Bulls in Pretoria in a repeat of last year's final on Saturday, and Griquas will take on the Pumas in Kimberley on Sunday. 

The Sharks have a bye.

We take a look at all the Round Six action!

Friday, August 18:

Western Province v Golden Lions
(Newlands, Cape Town - Kick-off: 19.00; 17.00 GMT)

The clash between the Golden Lions and Western Province on Friday in Cape Town is expected to be thrilling as both teams have battled to build momentum this season, while they have developed a solid rivalry over the years.
The last time the Johannesburg team defeated Western Province at Newlands was in 2012, but anything can happen on Friday as the Golden Lions will be desperate to bounce back from two defeats, while the hosts will want to build on their victory at home last week.
There were only two changes to the Capetonians' starting team, with flank Cobus Wiese making his debut and Leyds replacing Bjorn Basson, while the Golden Lions will be led by prop Jacques van Rooyen following the injury to Ryan Kankowski in a team that also shows few changes to last week.

"The Lions I almost think their campaign is starting now in terms of getting their Super Rugby campaign finished and settling in as a new coaching team with Swys [De Bruin] and his assistants," said Western Province assistant coach Dawie Snyman.

"They will definitely be a strong challenge for us on Friday."

Meanwhile, Golden Lions head coach Swys de Bruin is not panicking despite his side's slow start to this year's competition.

"We can't afford, with this group of players, to look too far ahead," said De Bruin, adding: "Many of the players were with us [in Super Rugby].

"Many of these players did not get a lot of game time and now they do get game time.

"They know what we expect of them and they know how the Lions play. It is just a matter of time then things will come right."

Recent results:
2016: Golden Lions won 58-32, Johannesburg
2015: Golden Lions won 32-24, Johannesburg (Final)
2015: Golden Lions won 62-32, Johannesburg 
2014: Western Province won 19-16, Cape Town (Final)
2014: Golden Lions won 35-33, Johannesburg

Prediction: It's a tough one to call. Both sides have deadly attackers across the park. However, WP are at home and that is why we think they will edge it by five points.


Western Province: 15 Sarel Marais, 14 Seabelo Senatla, 13 EW Viljoen, 12 Huw Jones, 11 Dillyn Leyds, 10 Damian Willemse, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Cobus Wiese, 6 Jaco Coetzee, 5 John Schickerling, 4 Chris van Zyl (captain), 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 1 Jacobus Janse van Rensburg.

Blue Bulls v Free State Cheetahs
(Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria - Kick-off: 14.05; 12.05 GMT)

The Free State Cheetahs will be hunting their third successive Currie Cup win against the Blue Bulls. The last time the teams met was in the 2016 Final, which the Free Staters won 36-16.
The defending champions have been bolstered by the return of Francois Venter, who reclaims the captaincy, and Teboho Mohoje, in a team that sees several changes, while Dennis Visser and Ali Mgijima could make their debuts off the bench.
Blue Bulls coach Nollis Marais also drafted in Warrick Gelant, while Burger Odendaal will lead the team in the absence of Boom Prinsloo, who is sick.

"We need a strong performance on Saturday," said Marais.

"The two defeats in our last two matches really hurt, but there were some positives signs, especially the way we finished against Western Province last weekend. 

"That said, we now know that the bar is set very high in the Currie Cup and everyone is aware that only our very best effort will get us over the line."

Meanwhile, Free State Cheetahs head coach Rory Duncan is happy to have Venter and Mohoje back in the mix.

"I am very happy not just from a playing perspective, but from a leadership perspective as well," said Duncan.

"It is good to have him [Venter], it is good to have Oupa [Teboho Mohoje] back in the line-up. 

"They obviously bring something special from their quality of play, but from a leadership perspective they are a calming factor in the team."

Recent results:
2016: Free State Cheetahs won 36-16, Bloemfontein (Final)
2016: Free State Cheetahs won 43-20, Bloemfontein
2015: Blue Bulls won 24-17, Pretoria
2015: Blue Bulls won 57-19, Bloemfontein
2014: Blue Bulls won 31-22, Bloemfontein

Prediction: Both teams will be looking to bounce back from defeats. It will be another close one, but we think the Blue Bulls will win by seven points or less.


Blue Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Kefentse Mahlo, 13 Dries Swanepoel, 12 Burger Odendaal (captain), 11 Jamba Ulengo, 10 Tony Jantjies, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Nicholas de Jager, 7 Abongile Nonkontwana, 6 Shaun Adendorff, 5 Ruben van Heerden, 4 Irne Herbst, 3 Conraad van Vuuren, 2 Jan-Henning Campher, 1 Pierre Schoeman, 
Replacements: 16 Johan Grobbelaar, 17 Dayan van der Westhuizen, 18 Jano Venter, 19 Marco van Staden/Clyde Davids, 20 Andre Warner, 21 Joshua Stander, 22 John Jackson.

Griquas v Pumas
(Griqua Park, Kimberley - Kick-off: 14.30; 12.30)

In Kimberley, Griquas will have their sights set on their third win in a row after toppling Western Province and the Free State Cheetahs and their fourth consecutive victory against the Pumas and when they line up in Kimberley.
The visitors from Mpumalanga will have everything to play for as they come off three straight defeats after kicking off the season with a victory against the Golden Lions.
The Kimberley outfit have won the last three matches between the sides since 2014, which should boost their confidence, while they will also look to take advantage of the fact that the Pumas come off a bye.
Pumas flank Chris Cloete will earn his first start after a number of appearances off the bench, in one of four personnel changes to the team, as the coaching staff opted for continuity in selection for the clash.

"We obviously got a big challenge this week against a Griquas team that has got some confidence," said Pumas head coach Brent Janse van Rensburg. "They are a team that really likes to keep the ball in hand and play you to the edge a lot.

"They play wide rugby. It will be very important that we got good width on defence, with good line speed and put them under pressure. They will need to slow the ball down in the collision this week.

"I think if we can contain their play to the edge then we will be in the game. Our catch-up defence is going to have to be really good and we need to be prepared to defend a high phase volume in this game. They have the ability to keep the ball for very long and extended periods and we need to just battle that storm."

Recent results:
2016: Griquas won 41-35, Nelspruit
2015: Griquas won 32-15, Kimberley
2014: Griquas won 31-27, Kimberley
2014: Pumas won 33-15, Nelspruit
2013: Pumas won 33-15, Nelspruit (Promotion/Relegation)

Prediction: Griquas have been fantastic in their last two games and we can't see them losing to the Pumas in Kimberley. Griquas will win by 14 points.


Griquas: 15 Eric Zana, 14 Kyle Steyn, 13 Tertius Kruger, 12 Johnathan Francke, 11 Adriaan Coertzen (captain), 10 Andre Swarts, 9 Christiaan Meyer, 8 Jonathan Janse Van Rensburg, 7 Sias Koen, 6 Wendal Wehr (captain), 5 Pieter Jansen Van Vuren, 4 Shaun McDonald, 3 Stephan Kotze, 2 Marius Fourie, 1 Devon Martinus.
Replacements: 16 Abraham le Roux, 17 Nicolaas Oosthuizen, 18 Jonathan Adendorf, 19 Kevin Kaba, 20 Renier Botha, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Koch Marx.

Pumas: 15 Gerrit Smith, 14 Jean-Paul Lewis, 13 Jerome Pretorius, 12 Hennie Skorbinski (captain), 11 Ruwellyn Isbell, 10 Justin van Staden, 9 Stefan Ungerer, 8 Francois Kleinhans, 7 Lambert Groenewald, 6 Chris Cloete, 5 Hugo Kloppers, 4 Stefan Willemse, 3 Pieter Scholtz, 2 Mark Pretorius, 1 Khwezi Mona.

WP tackle Lions into submission

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 16:23

CURRIE CUP REPORT: The Golden Lions dominated possession for the entire encounter but were thwarted by an impenetrable Western Province defence as the home side kept their visitors try-less while scoring six of their own to claim a 39-3 victory at Newlands on Friday.

WP was forced to defend for long periods of the encounter and thrived on the counter-attack, where they punished the Lions. The home side bagged three tries either side of half-time to secure the bonus point victory. 

The Golden Lions were in control of possession from the kick-off as they tried to bash their way through WP's defence. However, despite maintaining possession for a number of phases, they were unable to get into the home side's 22. 

Jaco van der Walt missed a penalty attempt in the opening five minute from about 47 metres after the Golden Lions dominated the home side at scrum time. It took the visitors nine minutes to get into WP's 22, when fullback Sarel Marais failed to collect a high ball, knocking on in the process. 

The ensuing scrum was solid and a simple set play saw the Golden Lions create an overlap but the final pass failed to go to hand and WP were let off the hook. 

The opening points of the game came completely against the run of play as Huw Jones charged down an attempted clearance kick by Antony Volmink. The ball lodged itself in Jones' arms and the centre trotted over for the easy score. Marais popped over the conversion to hand the home side a 70 lead after 17 minutes.

The Golden Lions were on the board three minutes later though as Van der Walt made amends for his earlier miss. His kick at goal found its mark as the Golden Lions trailed 3-7 after 20 minutes. That proved to be their only points of the game though.

WP had their second try four minutes later as Cobus Wiese rounded off a flowing move as the home side opted to take a penalty quickly, which caught the Golden Lions ' defence off-guard. Marais failed with the conversion but the home side's lead was stretched to 12-3 after 24 minutes.

Damien Willemse added a 38th minute penalty before Jones had his brace on the stroke of half-time. A break by Dillyn Leyds saw him get his side onto the Golden Lions ' 22 before he was tackled high, however, his offload found Jones in support and the centre got over.

Willemse popped over the conversion but not before Volmink was shown a yellow card for the high tackle on Leyds as WP enjoyed a 22-3 lead at the half-time break.

The home side had their bonus point seven minutes after the restart when Seabelo Senatla raced onto an EW Viljoen grubber to dot down. Willemse's conversion ensured a 29-3 lead. From the restart, Nizaam Carr broke through the Golden Lions defence and got his side onto their opponents' 22.

He offloaded to scrumhalf Jano Vermaak to raced to the corner to score. Willemse was unable to convert as WP led 34-3 after 49 minutes. 

The Golden Lions dominated possession from that point but brilliant defending by the home side kept the visitors at bay, despite camping inside WP's half and 22.

There was time for one final try though as Senatla ended the match with a brace. Leyds set off on another sniping run and got his side onto the front foot and inside the Lions' 22. The ball was recycled and sent to Senatla, who muscled his way over the line.

Willemse failed to add the extras but it mattered little as the home side bagged their third victory of the campaign.

Man of the match: Sylvian Mahuza was dangerous whenever he had the ball while Marvin Orie was busy. Nizaam Carr worked hard for the home side while Dillyn Leyds racked up the metres. Seabelo Senatla showed how deadly he can be when the given the chance. Our award goes to Huw Jones, who not only bagged a brace but led the defensive line perfectly as he rushed up to thwart many a Lions attack.
