Paul Roos aim to jolt Jeppe

Paul Roos and Jeppe will contest the main match at the St John’s Easter festival on Thursday.

The Stellenbosch side are coming off the back of a 20-0 drubbing of Wynberg in the recent Newlands Rugby Day, but Jeppe are also on a high having beaten arch-rivals KES 17-13.

‘We are under no illusions that the game will be tight and a physical confrontation awaits us,’ Paul Roos coach Stephan Jordaan told ‘We watched them last weekend and they were impressive against KES.’

Paul Roos will rely heavily on fullback Craig Barry and No 8 Braam Steyn, while No 8 Arno Vosloo will be a key player for Jeppe.

Kick-off is at 4pm.
