GWK-Griquas coach Pote Human has made four changes to his side for their first home game in this year's Absa Currie Cup competition against DHL Western Province in Kimberley on Saturday and made some positional switches too.
Nick Schonert comes in at prop for Lourens Adriaanse, who was called up to the Springbok squad for their Rugby Championship clash against Argentina this weekend and Leon Karemaker comes in at No 8 in place of Burger Schoeman, who is relegated to the bench.
In a positional switch, Human has also decided to select Hilton Lobberts at the side of the scrum, with Jonathan Adendorf slotting in at lock.
In the backline, Marnus Hugo comes in at scrumhalf, after Jacques Coetzee struggled with the new scrum laws against the Blue Bulls. Coetzee moves to the bench, while wing Rocco Jansen also gets his first start of this year's competition in one of two positional switches.
He covers for PJ Vermeulen, who moves to fullback in place of Gouws Prinsloo.
The Griquas team is:
15 PJ Vermeulen, 14 Nico Scheepers, 13 JP Nel, 12 Howard Mnisi, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Hilton Lobberts, 6 Carel Greeff, 5.
