Griquas freshen up for Pumas

Griquas have opted to make a few rotational changes to their side to face the Pumas in the Currie Cup this weekend, with two stalwart forwards, Justin Downey and Hendrik Roodt, given a breather this week after carrying a heavy workload all season.

The Kimberley side welcomes back some key backilne talents in the form of fullback Riaan Viljoen, who missed last week’s game against the Lions through paternity leave, and outside center Jean Stemmet, who has been out injured for a few weeks. Viljoen is in for Rudi Vogt, who drops to the bench, while Stemmet replaces Wilmaure Louw in the side.

An injury to Martin Muller means a completely new lock pair, with Jaco Nepgen and Frikkie Spies starting in the second row, while on-loan Blue Bulls flank Marnus Schoeman will start at openside flank, in place of Downey.

Griquas will be hoping for a good five-point win against the Pumas, wihch would catapult them into the top four should the Sharks prevail against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

Griquas: 15 Riaan Viljoen; 14 Dusty Noble, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 Hanno Coetzee, 11 Rocco Jansen; 10 Earl Rose, 9 Sarel Pretorius; 8 Jonathan Mokuena (capt), 7 Davon Raubenheimer, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Jaco Nepgen, 4 Frikkie Spies, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes, 1 Ivann Espag. Reserves: 16 Simon Westraadt, 17 Steph Roberts, 18 Leon Karemaker, 19 Justin Downey, 20 Marnus Hugo, 21 Matthew Rosslee, 22 Rudi Vogt
