WP name strong side for Bulls clash

DHL Western Province coach Allister Coetsee today named a strong squad for his teams Currie Cup opener against The Bulls at Newlands.

Up front he has named a battle hardened pack with Gerbrand Grobler the only player without Super Rugby experience even though he has been on the Stormers bench.

Deon Fourie captains the side from the flank with Scarra Ntubeni starting the season as he finished it last year in the number 2 jersey, Rhynhardt Elstadt will be the man they look to get them over the advantage line, Elstadt is almost forgotten as being the hard man before the emergence of one Eben Etzebeth.

The backs contain a number of exciting players, SA u20 start Cheslyn Kolbe makes his senior debut at left wing with Gerhard van den Heever and Gio Aplon adding the necessary experience in the back three.

Louis Schreuder and Gary van Aswegen make up the halfback pairing, the former will be vice-captain of the side while the latter will almost certainly be looking to repeat his heroics against of the last super rugby league game against the Bulls,  performance that had the entire Newlands crowd on their feet for an extended standing ovation when he was subbed for Elton Jantjies.

Damian De Allende and Pat Howard will be looking to have a go from mid-field , Howard too is making his senior debut and will be trying hard to make his mark on the coach.
