TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Springbok discard Damian de Allende will play his first Currie Cup match for Western Province on Friday.

Province face the Boland Cavaliers at Newlands in the last round of league actions - ahead of the play-offs.

The Bok centre comes straight into the starting line-up in place of Huw Jones, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

De Allende's inclusion in the WP line-up is one of five changes to the team that beat Griquas in Kimberley last week.

He will be partnered in midfield by Johnny Kotze, after Juan de Jongh returned to Springbok duty this week.

In a rotational switch out wide Scott van Breda gets an opportunity to start on the wing, with Sevens Springbok Werner Kok providing cover from the replacements bench.

In the forward pack hooker Mike Willemse returns to the starting XV in place of Bongi Mbonambi, who has also rejoined the national squad.

He is joined in the front row by loosehead prop Alistair Vermaak, with JC Janse van Rensburg on the replacements bench.

Western Province: 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Scott van Breda, 13 Johnny Kotze, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Leolin Zas, 10 Robert du Preez, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Kobus van Dyk, 6 Rynhardt Elstadt, 5 Chris van Zyl (captain), 4 Jan de Klerk, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Mike Willemse, 1 Alistair Vermaak.
