Groom, Liebenberg in for WP
August 28, 2013
DHL Western Province coach Allister Coetzee has picked Tiaan Liebenberg at hooker for Friday's Absa Currie Cup clash against the MTN Golden Lions in Johannesburg.

Liebenberg swaps with Scarra Ntubeni at hooker, the former also set to make his first run-on appearance in 2013. It is one of two changes to the side that beat GWK Griquas last weekend.

Nic Groom replaces Louis Schreuder and will make his first start of the season at scrumhalf, with the latter dropping to the bench.

Ntubeni and Schreuder reverts to the bench where he will be joined by utility back Michael van der Spuy. Van der Spuy made his Currie Cup debut back in 2011 and has played a total of 19 matches for DHL Western Province.

DHL WP are the only unbeaten team in the 2013 Absa Currie Cup, having drawn with the Blue Bulls and beating the Cheetahs (at home) and Griquas (away) over the past two weeks, and they currently top the tournament standings.

15. Gio Aplon

13. Juan de Jongh
12. Damian de Allende
