Lewis to lead Boland

Clemen Lewis will skipper the Kavaliers against WP in the absence of Conrad Burke.

Lewis replaces regular hooker and captain Burke who is out with a broken rib. The good news for coach Deon Davids is first-choice props Janro van Niekerk and Kobie Adriaanse are fit for Saturday’s clash.

Dewey Swartbooi’s injury forces Hein Myburgh to pair up with Lionel Cornelius in midfield. Marnus Hugo is back at scrumhalf despite rumours he’s not yet fully recovered from a fractured cheekbone.

Boland – 15 Justin Peach, 14 Deon Scholtz, 13 Hein Myburgh, 12 Lionel Cornelius, 11 Ernie Kruger, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Junior Bester, 7 Carel Hoffman, 6 Zolani Mofu, 5 Rito Hlungwane, 4 Nico Esterhuyse, 3 Kobie Adriaanse, 2 Clemen Lewis (c), 1 Janro van Niekerk.
Subs: 16 Harry Vermaas, 17 Jané du Toit, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 André du Toit, 20 Danie van der Merwe, 21 Mark Harris, 22 Llewellyn Adonis.
