Five Springboks return to Province starting XV, as they look to make it four wins in a row against Griquas
Western Province will be looking to make it four wins in four when they host Griquas at Newlands Rugby Stadium on Saturday night. After their impressive 65-36 win against the Golden Lions last weekend, Province coach John Dobson has made a number of changes to the team, with five returning Springboks, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Bongi Mbonambi, Damian Willemse, Wilco Louw and JJ Engelbrecht selected for Saturday’s game. Dobson is not too concerned about disrupting the momentum of the team with these changes. There is also a start for Hershel Jantjies at scrum half, and Dobson says he is happy to give the exciting prospect a chance in the team. Dobson says that the Mbonambi’s return he is able to give Scarra Ntubeni a break, as it is important to manage him correctly considering his injuries in the past.
