Whiteley gets his Bok chance

With Willem Alberts’s hamstring injury preventing him from boarding the plane to Argentina with the rest of his springbok teammates last night, it’s Golden Lions captain Warren Whiteley who will tour in his place.

The skillful number 8, who played his junior rugby in Sharks colours after matriculating at Glenwood, has been a stand out for the Johannesburg side this year and has been particularly instrumental in their two big Currie Cup wins to date.

With Juan Smith and Oupa Mohoje already providing sufficient cover at blindside flank, coach Heyneke Meyer has opted to include Whiteley in order to play a back up role to number Duane Vermeulen instead, as reward for the former’s great form across all competitions this year.
