Luke Watson returns for Currie Cup clash

Luke Watson will make a return to the Western Province side to play the Golden Lions in a Currie Cup Premier Division match at Newlands on Saturday afternoon.

The newly-married Province skipper Watson was forced to sit out last weekend when the side played against neighbours Boland, because of a bout of influenza.

Former Lions lock Anton van Zyl has been moved off the bench and will swop places with New Zealander Chris Jack in the starting line-up.

On the bench, Springbok scrumhalf Bollas Conradie has made way for the talented Conrad Hoffmann.

The Western Province team:

Joe Pietersen, Tonderai Chavhanga, Juan de Jongh, Morgan Newman, Gio Aplon, Peter Grant, Dewaldt Duvenage, Luke Watson (captain), Duane Vermeulen, Francois Louw, Adriaan Fondse, Anton van Zyl, Brock Harris, Tiaan Liebenberg, Wicus Blaauw.

Substitutes: Deon Fourie, JD Moller, Chris Jack, Pieter Louw, Conrad Hoffmann, Frikkie Welsh, JJ Engelbrecht
