Lions lose Grobbelaar for Province clash

The Lions will be without their regular captain Cobus Grobbelaar when they meet Western Province in an important Currie Cup  clash at Newlands on Saturday.

Kick-off 5.05pm.

Grobbelaar has been ruled out of the game due to a shoulder injury which he picked up in the game against the Sharks last weekend.

A further blow to the team is an heel injury which has ruled out vice captain, Willem Alberts.

Jano Vermaak will take the role of captaincy, a first for Vermaak.

Todd Clever will replace Willem Alberts and Derick Minnie replaces Cobus Grobbelaar.


Earl Rose; Dusty Noble, Alwyn Hollenbach, Doppies la Grange, Henno Mentz; Herkie Kruger, Jano Vermaak; Todd Clever, Franco Van der Merwe, Derick Minnie, Willem Stoltz, Nico Luus, Gert Muller, Hans Van Dyk, JC Janse van Rensburg.
