Mokuena leads charge on Cheetahs

Jonathan Mokuena will captain Griquas when they meet the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this Friday.

Mokuena was named Man of the Match when the Royal XV played against the British & Irish Lions on 25 May, and has also led the Springbok Sevens to glory in George (2007). Mokuena is a former Cheetahs player who has struggled for opportunities, so it will be interesting to see how he goes against his former team-mates.

Bjorn Basson, Naas Olivier, Sarel Pretorius and Gavin Passens have also represented the Cheetahs at Super 14 level recently.

Griquas – Riaan Viljoen, Egon Seconds, Wilmaure Louw, Barry Geel, Bjorn Basson, Naas Olivier, Sarel Pretorius, Heinrich Stride, Davon Raubenheimer, Jonathan Mokuena (c), Jacques Lombaard, Brendon Snyman, Ruaan du Preez, Ryno Barnes, Steph Roberts.
Reserves: Andries Kruger, Albertus Buckle, Sean Plaatjies, Rohan Kitshoff, Dougie Helmuth, Jaco Bekker, Gavin Passens.
