Griquas change seven for WPSHARE
Fresh from a 41-3 defeat to Sharks in Durban, the Griquas face another tough challenge against a string WP side.

For Wednesday's match, captain Adriaan Coertzen moves from left wing to fullback in place of George Whitehead.
Speedster Enver Brandt will don the 11 jersey, while Whitehead moves to the bench.

The modification in the loose forwards sees Sias Koen coming in at flank and Wendal Wehr his flank partner, in place of Shaun McDonald and RJ Liebenberg.
The last changes see the introduction of a new-look front row – 2 Marius Fourie starts at hooker, Liam Hendricks at loosehead prop and Maries Fourie at tighthead. They replace Ewald van der Westhuizen, hooker Abraham Le Roux and Devon Martinus.
