Griquas change three
3 Oct 2012
Griquas have promoted JP Nel to inside centre and have made two injury-forced changes to their pack for their Currie Cup match against the Golden Lions.
Nel, who ran on as a reserve wing against the Free State Cheetahs last weekend, gets a starting spot in the No 12 jersey. Walter Venter drops to the bench as a result.
Head coach Pote Human has also made two changes to his pack for the clash in Kimberley on Saturday. Loosehead prop Janro van Niekerk and flank Wesley Wilkins have been ruled out with injuries, which see Steph Roberts and Justin Downey fill in respectively.
Griquas – 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Jannie Boshoff, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 JP Nel, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Rynhardt Landman, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes (c), 1 Steph Roberts.
Subs: 16 Matt Dobson, 17 Ivann Espag, 18 Edwin Hewitt, 19 Jaco Nepgen, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Marnitz Boshoff, 22 Walter Venter.
