INJURY UPDATE: Western Province have no new injury concerns ahead of their match against the Boland, but they will be without Springboks Juan de Jongh and Mbongeni Mbonambi for the Round Nine clash.

The duo are back in the Bok setup ahead of the Rugby Championship match against Australia at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday after playing a role in Province's 52-31 over Griquas in Kimberley last Friday.

However, Province will be bolstered by the return of centre Damian de Allende who was released from the Springbok squad for Currie Cup duty this coming weekend.

The Cape side will also have Johnny Kotze available for the Cape derby after the 23-year-old sat out the match against Griquas. Kotze was available for the Kimberley encounter, but was left out of the matchday 23 after head coach John Dobson decided to go with six forwards and two backs on his bench for the match

Lock JD Schickerling is another player who could make a return in the blue and white hoops. 

Schickerling has been a struggling with a shoulder injury in the last few weeks and a final call on his availability for the Boland match will be made later this week.
