Changes for WP following backline injury blow

Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has named his team to take on the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup at Newlands this Saturday afternoon.

Damian de Allende moves into the starting team at wing as Gio Aplon is out injured for the next fortnight with a grade one ligament strain. Pat Howard provides cover off the bench.

Tyrone Holmes starts at 7, following his one-week ban. Don Armand thus returns to lock as Wilhelm van der Sluys drops to the wood.

Berton Klaasen provides cover on the bench for the injured Gary van Aswegen.

Western Province:

Joe Pietersen, Gerhard van den Heever, JP du Plessis, Marcel Brache, Damian de Allende, Demetri Catrakilis, Louis Schreuder, Jebb Sinclair, Tyrone Holmes, Deon Fourie, De Kock Steenkamp, Don Armand, Frans Malherbe, Scarra Ntubeni, Steven Kitshoff.

Reserves: Deon Carstens, Brok Harris, Wilhelm van der Sluys, Helmut Lehman, Nic Groom, Bertin Klaasen, Pat Howard.
