The return of Junior Bok prop Steven Kitshoff and abrasive loose forward Duane Vermeulen is the most significant amongst the six changes DHL Western Province head coach Allister Coetzee made to his side ahead of Saturday's Absa Currie Cup meeting with GWK Griquas in Kimberley.
Most of the changes have been brought about by injuries - and one is positional - but the return of Vermeulen is the big news. Vermeulen has been missing since April because of a knee injury and his return sees Jebb Sinclair drop to the bench.
Kitshoff comes back having recovered fully from the knee injury which kept him out of last week's Sharks match.
There is a new halfback pairing in Demetri Catrakilis (flyhalf) and Louis Schreuder (scrumhalf), replacing the injured Burton Francis and Dewaldt Duvenage.
Duvenage gets a total break from rugby with Vodacom Cup winner Nic Groom providing scrumhalf cover from the bench.
The Western Province team is: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Ederies Arendse, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Tyrone Holmes, 6 Deon Fourie (captain), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Don Armand, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Replacements: 16 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17 Brok Harris, 18 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 19 Jebb Sinclair, 20 Nic Groom, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Damian de Allende.
