Koch in Pumas start

Bok discard Vincent Koch starts at tighthead prop for the Pumas as they take on the Sharks at Kings Park this weekend.

The blonde 25-year-old, who was actually born in Empangeni in KZN, rose to prominence in a strong Pumas pack last year, securing a Super Rugby gig with the Stormers on the back of which he earned a Bok call up for the Rugby Championship. Like the Sharks’ Cobus Reinach, Koch will feel he has a point to prove after being left out of Heyneke Meyer’s 31-man Rugby World Cup squad, which is bad news for a Sharks pack already struggling at scrum time.

The Pumas recorded a surprisingly comfortable victory over the Sharks in Nelspruit earlier in the season, built in no small part on a strong performance from their pack in the set piece. With Koch back in the mix, they will present an even more formidable challenge this weekend.

Pumas: 15 JW Bell; 14 Trompie Pretorius, 13 Hoffmann Maritz, 12 Stefan Watermeyer (capt), 11 Rosko Speckman; 10 JC Roos, 9 Faf de Klerk; 8 Jason Fraser, 7 Uzair Cassiem, 6 Jaco Bouwer, 5 Marius Coetzer, 4 Rudi Mathee, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Jacques Momberg, 1 Corné Fourie.
Reserves: 16 Swys de Toit, 17 Dee-Jay Terblanche, 18 Giant Mtyanda, 19 Marnus Schoeman, 20 Reynier van Rooyen, 21 Justin van Staden, 22 Bernado Botha.
